Call for Participation
On 23rd June 2011 the CREATE Conference will present a one-day symposium in Shoreditch House, London. In order to build on last year’s successful three-day conference in Edinburgh, the 2011 event will be a forum to discuss creative practice in interaction design in preparation for a full-scale conference in 2012.
The Language of Creativity
The theme of this year’s event is The Language of Creativity. The CREATE committee want to encourage discussion around the issues of how creativity is interpreted and used in collaborative and interdisciplinary interaction design projects. Critical to this dialogue is the involvement of both researchers and practitioners.
The symposium will provide an opportunity to share project experiences and emerging themes in this hybrid field. The CREATE committee invites examples of novel design practice, methods and ideas from the commercial, academic and public sectors. Examples of web, mobile, product, artistic and service-based design are all encouraged.
