The Live Interactionary session is back for CHI 2003 and we are looking
for teams to participate!

What is the Interactionary?

The Interactionary is a special event in which design teams work on an
interaction design challenge in real time, on stage, in a competitive and
fun format.  This session is entertaining and educational, demonstrating
"live" some of the less-tangible aspects of team design processes, as well
as the more formal elements.

How does the Interactionary work?

Three or four teams, usually with 3 or 4 interdisciplinary participants
each, are given 10 minutes to work onstage on a design challenge.  A panel
of experts will highlight and discuss what they see as the most
interesting and important aspects of each team's approach and score each
team on a number of categories, including outcome, communication, and
design process.  There are awards -- especially fame -- for all teams!

How do I enter?

To enter a team or find more details about the Interactionary, go to the
CHI 2003 website at  To see previous Interactionaries, take at look at  Submissions from teams interested in participating should include
information about the participants and their experience in intereaction
design, as well as specific techniques and approaches used in working with
design problems.  Preference will be given to teams that have worked
together on design projects, can articulate their design methods, and
convince reviewers of a fun yet professional, open-minded attitude towards
design education and practice.  We encourage you to use your creativity to
convince reviewers that your team will excel in this unique format.   We
especially welcome teams from countries and organizations traditionally
less well represented at CHI conferences.

When is the deadline for entries?

Final submissions are due by Friday, December 6th, 2002 (5pm your local
time).  Team captains will be notified of acceptance or otherwise by
Friday, January 24th, 2003.
