Dear Colleague,

We are very excited about the fifth ACM/SIGCHI DIS

DIS2004 ACROSS THE SPECTRUM
---------------------------------------------------------

DIS2004 will take place in Kendall Square, Cambridge,
Massachusetts, 1-4 August 2004

The theme of DIS2004 is 'Across the Spectrum'. We seek to
encompass the diverse and simultaneously inclusive nature
of the discipline of interaction design. We are
addressing the themes of: inter-disciplinarity, the
relationships between social and work processes, the
nature of information, aesthetics and emotion, as well as
presenting new paradigms of interaction. With this
approach we hope to create an arena for debate and
reflection on the future of the discipline of
interaction design.

We have been very pleased with both the amount and
quality of the submissions to DIS2004. We accepted
30 full papers and design cases from over 160 submissions.

David Benyon and Paul Moody,
DIS2004 co-chairs

Daniel Gruen and Irene McAra-McWilliam,
DIS2004 program chairs
