Proceedings of the 37th ACM International Conference on the Design of Communication, SIGDOC 2019, Portland, OR, USA, October 4-6, 2019
Welcome to the 2019 ACM International Conference on the Design of Communication! It is only fitting that this year's theme---Broadening the Boundaries in Communication Design---shares a kinship with our host city of Portland, Oregon, a town known for its abundance of iconic bridges. The call for this year's event asked interested scholars, practitioners, and teachers to consider how disciplinary, social, geographic, technical, cultural, and ethical boundaries shape our professional experiences and civic lives in communication design, professional and technical communication (PTC), and user experience (UX), and/or how these boundaries might be questioned, broken down, or reassembled. We specifically invited scholarship and practice that reconsidered and remarked the boundaries of our professional and civic lives, old and new, that inhibit connections. We encouraged attendees to rethink how more inclusive research, methods, and habits could bring about further innovation and justice within the design of communication. We invited designers, researchers, practitioners, and educators to submit proposals that think along or across social, methodological, theoretical, and pedagogical axes. The bridges conjoining the earthly boundaries in our geographical backdrop, then, represent the bridges we as scholars and practitioners of the design of communication build or do not build in the various boundaries of our work.
