What we are looking for
Exhibits may include fully working interactive systems, demonstrations or
well-made video presentations. The submission of supplementary materials is
encouraged to explain the design, its rationale, and any evaluation
undertaken. Authors of selected projects will be encouraged to prepare a
poster indicating these aspects of the exhibit and to informally explain
their work to delegates during the evening between the first and second day
of the conference.

Proposals for exhibits may focus on any aspect of interactive design -
utility or entertainment, functional or affective needs.

This is an opportunity for the exhibited projects to be seen by leaders in
design, human computer interaction and ergonomics. The co-sponsors of
CREATE, the British Computer Society and the Ergonomics Society are the UKıs
leading bodies in their respective fields, with an international reputation.

Professional and student submissions are eligible. Team submissions are
welcome. The work must have been completed in the past eighteen months (at
the Stage 1 submission deadline Wednesday 12th March). Work may be submitted
