Create11: The interaction design symposium

Date posted: 26/01/2011

Shoreditch House, London
23 June 2011

Deadline for submissions: 28 February 2011


Keynote speaker: Moritz Waldemeyer

Call for Participation
On 23 June 2011 the CREATE Conference will present a one-day symposium in Shoreditch House, London. In order to build on last year’s successful three-day conference in Edinburgh, the 2011 event will be a forum to discuss creative practice in interaction design in preparation for a full-scale conference in 2012.

The theme of this year’s event is The Language of Creativity. The CREATE committee want to encourage discussion around the issues of how creativity is interpreted and used in collaborative and interdisciplinary interaction design projects. Critical to this dialogue is the involvement of both researchers and practitioners.

The symposium will provide an opportunity to share project experiences and emerging themes in this hybrid field. The CREATE committee invites examples of novel design practice, methods and ideas from the commercial, academic and public sectors. Examples of web, mobile, product, artistic and service-based design are all encouraged.

All submissions will be reviewed and selected by a committee, and will published online after the symposium. At least one author will be expected to register to attend the symposium for each selected submission. Submissions can take one of three types:

(1)  Full papers – Max 6 pages in ACM format
(2)  Short papers – Max 2 pages A4, pdf file.
(3)  Digital posters – One page, landscape, pdf file. Selected posters will be displayed on screen during the symposium.

Submissions can cover a range of topics, for example:
·  Case study reports
·  Work in progress
·  Design methodologies
·  Practice overviews and approaches
·  Evaluation techniques
·  Theoretical perspectives
·  New ideas and critical analysis
