This edition aims to contribute to the methodological debate through the publication of works in which the method becomes relevant. Works that explore methods for composing research problems, for gathering information, for co-creation, for developing participatory processes, for transferring research findings to the industry, for getting to know the user, for speculation, for eval­uation and analysis, among others, are welcome.

The call is twofold: on the one hand, we invite design researchers to present contributions that account for the use of new methodological repertoires or for the creative use of traditional methods. On the other hand, we call researchers from other disciplines (especially anthropologists, sociologists, and historians) interested in the various design methods to present contributions that account for the results of their explorations.

If interested, please submit your manuscript in by September 30, 2018.
