Call for Submissions: IxDA's interaction'09|vancouver
The Interaction Design Association (IxDA) is now accepting submissions
for its second annual conference to be held in Vancouver, British
Columbia on February 5-8, 2009.
Submissions are for Lightning Round slots, each of which is 25 minutes
in duration around a single topic. Single or duo speakers are allowed,
but no panels.
There are 28 open Lightning Round slots. Lightning Round speakers will
receive free admission to the conference.
Topics for Lightning Round should relate to the field of interaction
design. We are particularly interested in methods, prototyping
techniques, practice, communicating design intent, design inspiration
from other disciplines, mobile, physical computing, ubicomp, and
information visualization. We are interested in fields related to
interaction design (e.g., information architecture, visual and
industrial design, coding), but only as they relate to interaction
The deadline for submissions is August 31, 2008. Lightning Round
speakers will be determined by the IxDA Conference Committee and
announced on October 1, 2008.
You will need to provide a 100-150 word abstract for your session and
a 75-100 word bio. There is only one submission per person, so submit
your strongest idea.
