Abstract HCI has started to explore the positive roles that technology can play in improving the lives of people facing cognitive, emotional, physical, and socioeconomic challenges. Despite this encompassing a large percentage of the population, an overarching characteristic that people facing such challenges likely share is that society considers them vulnerable in one way or another [1]. In these contexts, undertaking even the most fundamental aspects of research and design---or even just meeting with potential participants in your project---can present many unexpected and significant challenges to researchers and practitioners. This issue prompted us to organize the "Designing for and with Vulnerable People" workshop at CHI 2013 in Paris earlier this year [2].
