Szu-Yu (Cyn) Liu is a Ph.D. candidate in Informatics at Indiana University. Drawing from posthumanist theories, her work focuses on sustainable interaction design and human-nature interaction to engage with challenges associated with climate change. Liu’s works were published in various ACM conferences, including CHI, DIS, TEI, CSCW, and LIMITS. She has participated in a workshop at CHI’16 and has experiences organizing workshops while working at ASUS Design Center in Taipei, Taiwan.

Jen Liu is a PhD student in Information Science at Cornell University. She designs and studies how technologies can shape and influence our relationships as a way to move towards a more livable, equitable, and just future. Her research has been published in venues such as CHI, TEI, DIS, and ISEA, and she has lead and facilitated several workshops in her work as an educator and activist.

Kristin Dew is a design researcher and PhD candidate in Human Centered Design & Engineering at the University of Washington. Her work bridges HCI and science and technology studies (STS), exploring matters of ethics and sustainability constituted through technology production practices. Her work has been published in ACM CHI, CSCW, and LIMITS, as well as the journal Human-Computer Interaction. She has participated in a workshop at CHI’17 and regularly uses workshops as both a research and pedagogical technique.

Patrycja Zdziarska is a PhD student in Informatics at Indiana University Bloomington. She combines critical methodologies with design practice to inform ethically responsible design. She has engaged with a wide range of topics to study design and technology including cultural heritage, the future of work, bottom-up making and innovation, and women’s health.

Maya Livio is a new media researcher and PhD candidate at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her work complicates the relationships between human-designed technologies and non-human networks, and is situated between feminist science and technology studies (STS), internet studies, and animal studies. She is the curator of MediaLive, an annual media arts festival at Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as curator of the Media Archaeology Lab, a space for interdisciplinary hands-on research on historical technologies, and has organized numerous workshops within these and educational contexts.

Shaowen Bardzell is Professor of Informatics at Indiana University’s School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering. Bardzell’s research explores the contributions of design, feminism, and social science to support technology’s role in social change. She has organized numerous workshops at SIGCHI venues and beyond for more than a decade (2007-2019), including CHI, DIS, CSCW, NordiCHI, Aarhus Conference, British HCI, PDC, EPIC, ACE, and 4S among others.
