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 in order to  
resolve problems, create new capabilities, or new functions, and 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.

So come along and share your own creative experiences. We look forward  
to meeting you on 1 and 2 July at Create 2009.

On 25 February 2009, the University launched its new name, Edinburgh Napier University.
