SIDeR 2015 Conference

Student Interaction Design Research Conference (Sider2015)

The Student Interaction Design Research Conference was inaugurated in 2005 in Sønderborg as a means of enabling interaction design students to participate in and contribute to research in the then emerging discipline of interaction design. A number of prestigious universities have since been hosts to the event. SIDeR offers students the opportunity to bring forth research they have carried out throughout design projects as well as share reflections on design theory through the medium of an academic paper. Throughout the two days of the event, students will be able to meet with colleagues from other universities, share views on the design practice and build a valuable network in the field of interaction design.

All students at bachelors and masters level are invited to participate in the conference and register, including those who have not submitted a paper to participate in the many hand-on activities that will run in parallel with paper presentations, demo sessions, keynote lectures and various social events.

The theme of Sider2015 is Embodied Interactions and hence, the body will be the main actor in this academic, interactive scene. Aside from writing and presenting novel ways to approach the “lived body”, visitors will be invited to participate on workshops and express their unique points of view while painting, sculpting, dancing or hacking. See you in Kolding on 27th and 28th of March!
