CREATE 2009 :: innovative interactions :: Covent Garden, London :: 1 – 2 July
CREATE 2009 is a 2-day conference about creating innovative interactions, whether digital consumer products, interactive services or interaction paradigms. A conference where the emphasis is on sharing the wealth of creative ideas we have developed to resolve problems, to create new capabilities, or new functions; where the aim is to evolve further creative designs that can make a difference to people.
The full programme is now complete and, similar to previous years, we have a good blend of academics and practitioners presenting. Our four keynote presentations are from:
Josephine Reid, Pervasive Computing Lab, Hewlett-Packard
Steve Benford, Mixed Reality Laboratory, University of Nottingham
Andrew McGrath, Director of Design and Usability, Orange Global
Crispin Jones, industrial and interaction designer
There are also 13 papers, from both academia and industry, all providing fascinating insights into the practice of user-centred design with digital technologies. Edinburgh Napier University’s Centre for Interaction Design is also providing a novel
interactive session during the final afternoon that will get you thinking about the design issues that we will have to address in the near future.
We use the middle evening productively with a showcase event, which was very successful last year. The event enables physical, interactive artefacts and prototypes to be demonstrated; the event is ‘augmented’ with a good buffet and some very drinkable wine.
Who should attend?
This conference will be of use to you if you are involved in user experience design and management, human-computer interaction, interaction design and usability, particularly if you want to hear how others are managing during these turbulent times. Delegates have commented in the past how refreshing it is to attend a small, friendly conference with a good mix of academics and practitioners and we hope that this will continue this year.
