Diversity computing is a new framework incorporating innovation in theory, methodology, and technology that embraces diversity and avoids normative ordering.
Applications of this framework afford sonic interaction to invite and facilitate shared meaning-making between individuals and groups, embracing differences rather than trying to eliminate them. We encourage submissions related to diversity computing and sonic interaction design. We are interested in exploring diversity from a larger perspective, including physical diversity, in the form for example of new technologies for visually or hearing impaired users, as well as mental diversity, such as new interfaces for musical expression for the population belonging to the autism spectrum, and social inclusion, including music technology for minorities.
