This interactive multidisciplinary one-day workshop brings together
researchers and practitioners interested in exploring the ethical,
economic, and material entanglements constituted by incentivisation.
Points of departure will be likely to involve discussions of, on the
one hand, designs projects which endeavor to explore incentivisation
and, on the other hand, workshop participants? recollections of and
opinions regarding instances in which they have (intentionally or

users in their projects.
We invite researchers and practitioners from fields including but not
restricted to design, HCI, CSCW, ethnography, psychology, anthropology,
human geography, as well as industry practitioners. Our day of
collaboration will comprise of pecha kucha-style presentations from
participants, discussions, and an activity based around a particular

incentives (e.g. money, vouchers, fun, connections) are inherent to
designs and how incentives come to be part of projects.
- To share as a group stories of how people have encouraged publics?
uptake of their research processes and where appropriate projects and
to reflect on these stories.
- To use presentations of participants? experiences to compare and
contrast the ways in which ideas and practices surrounding
incentivisation might vary between disciplines, between public and
privately-funded projects, and between different media.
- To discuss how digital worlds might make incentivisation a meaningful
and thought-provoking new paradigm for discussing research about and in
On the day of the workshop, presenters will begin discussions with
