Here are instructions for the seminars .

Here is a guide on how to read an article. Here is an example of the article "Design: Cultural Probes" analysed with the reading guide.

Note! Some papers are to be downloaded from ACM's digital library, you are able to access this library if connected to Internet at the IT-University, Chalmers and GU. You might not be able to access ACM at home! (Unless you have a Chalmers library card and therefore are able to log in at Chalmers Library, choose 'databaser' in the upper meny and then ACM Digital Library)
