SIDeR 2013: Call for Papers

November 20 2012

SIDeR is hosted in Aarhus, Denmark this year from 9-10 april 2013. (I am currently interning in Aarhus and promise you it is a nice city, and in April you will be delighted to leave winter in UmeÃ¥ and experience Spring in Denmark.) Below is the description from their website.  It is not only a great chance to get your thoughts published, but you also get to meet other interaction design students from all of Europe, and there’s a good party at the end to sum it all up.

Theme: Empowering Interactions

The conference theme for the 9th Student Interaction Design Research conference (SIDeR’13) is Empowering Interactions. Interaction design is now pervasive in all areas of life and there are few activities that are not in some way augmented, supported or even made possible by information technology. People from all walks of life are influenced by technology and in turn influence, appropriate or simply love technology. This has led to new opportunities for empowering people through technology, as well as helping people create technology that empowers themselves or others. This can be seen both as a democratic endeavour that opens up the world of information technology to everyone, as well as a pragmatic way of ensuring that products are actually used after their creation.

At the SIDeR’13 conference we invite everyone to submit work highlighting different forms of empowering interactions. You are free to interpret our theme as you see fit – it is a theme, not a stringent formula to be fulfilled. We welcome case studies, theoretical musings and couplings of theory and practical work.

Call for papers

We invite three different types of submissions:

1)     Papers. Papers must not exceed 4 pages (~2000 words) in length following the standard ACM format. The papers will be presented orally by authors on stage for 10 minutes, and the presentations are grouped in sessions with other related papers.

2)     Posters. Posters should be submitted as a .pdf file and must also include and accompanying description, which must not exceed 2 pages in length following the standard ACM format. Posters will be presented in dedicated poster sessions.

3)     Demos. Demos can be submitted by sending a technical description, which must not exceed 2 pages in length following the standard ACM format. Demos will be presented in dedicated demo sessions.
