11th Student Interaction Design Research conference
SIDeR is an international forum for showcasing papers, demos and posters from interaction design students. The conference will take place 27-28 of March, 2015 and will be held in Kolding, jointly organised by students from the two educational programs in Interaction Design in Kolding: University of Southern Denmark and Design School Kolding.
Embodied Interactions\nThe theme for the 11th Student Interaction Design Research conference (SIDeR 2015) is Embodied Interactions. Computers are getting smaller, more powerful, and closer to our bodies. We are witnessing a transition away from screen-based touch interfaces towards more intuitive and meaningful ways to interact with technology, ones that rely on the use of our body. At the same time, devices get strongly integrated with (web-based) services to serve their purposes. SIDeR 2015 provides a meeting ground for graduate students to exchange ideas concerning embodied interactions.
We are happy to announce Danielle Wilde from Australia as our first\nkeynote speaker. She will present her work on “Embodied Futures: Design Innovation and Embodied Engagement.”
We invite original unpublished research and design work on embodied interaction: Work that explores novel ways to acknowledge, support, utilize, exploit, or augment the ‘lived body’. Feel free to interpret the theme as you see fit – it is not a stringent formula to be fulfilled. We welcome case studies, theoretical musings and couplings of theory and practical work. We invite three different types of submissions:
1)\tPapers. Papers must not exceed 4 pages (~2000 words) following the standard Nordes format*. Papers will be reviewed by\nmembers of the Program Committee, as well as by peers. Accepted papers will be presented orally at the conference.
*Please find the Nordes paper template on this page: http://nordes.org/\nnordes2013/
2) Posters. Posters should be submitted as a pdf file and must also include an accompanying description, which must not exceed\n2 pages following the standard Nordes format. Printed posters in A1 format must be presented at the conference in dedicated poster sessions.
3)\tDemos. Demos can be submitted by sending a video and a technical description, which must not exceed 2 pages following the\nstandard Nordes format. Demos will be presented in dedicated demo sessions and/or at the party.
Suggested topics for papers include but are not limited to:
- Participatory Design
- Design Process
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Ubiquitous Computing
- Multimodal Interaction
- Tangible User Interfaces
