Bernard Lahousse: Food = interaction

The way we experience food is much more complex than taste only. Food is influenced through the interaction with and between our senses. How important is our nose and how does that influence the food and combinations we like? Can color change the way we perceive food? And what about sound, touch, the setting, do they interact with food? Let's explore modes where one will taste, smell, touch, hear food in ways never experienced before.

Irene Au: Body Languages of Interaction Design

Interaction design is by now a well-understood discipline. As a professional community we have refined the way we think and talk about what we do and how we do our work. Design is both art and science, yet while we teach methods and practices for hard design skills, we don’t teach practices that address the art of design, which is often mystified as “creative genius”.

Dan Hill - New Soft City

The way the street feels may soon be defined by the invisible and inaudible. Cities are being laced with sensors, which in turn generate urban informatics experiences, imbuing physical space with real-time behavioural data. The urban fabric itself can become reflexive and responsive to some extent, and there are numerous implications for the design and experience of cities as a result.

Kel Smith - The Use of Virtual Worlds Among People with Disabilities

With their emphasis on 3D graphics and complex interface controls, it would appear that gaming interfaces and virtual worlds have little to offer people with disabilities. On the contrary, virtual worlds serve as a form of augmented reality where users transcend physiological or cognitive challenges to great social and therapeutic benefit.

Tom Igoe - Open Source Design: Camel or Unicorn?

Open source development has taken hold in software design, and is beginning to show up in electronics hardware design as well.  Thus far, however, open source has been limited mainly to the engineering side of development.  Open source tools for design tend to be abysmal, largely because there are no designers working on them. And open source has not made a blip on consumer-facing issues like licensing, warranties, and customer support.  Should it?  What impacts could it have, and how can the design community help to bring that about?

Jamin Hegeman - Service Design: An Interaction Design Perspective

What role do interaction designers have in service design? What is service design? How is it different from interaction design? Or is it not? This talk will explore these questions by looking at service design projects, including a project with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Neurosurgery Clinic. As an interaction designer with service design education and experience, I will offer my insights what skills and methods interaction designers need work in this emerging area of design.
