CREATE 2009 :: 1-2 July 2009
British Computer Society, Covent Garden, London

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 to resolve problems, to create new capabilities, or new functions; where the aim is to evolve further creative 
designs that can make a difference to people.

Similar to previous years, we have a good blend of academics and practitioners presenting. There are four keynote 
presentations 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, an industrial and interaction designer. 

There are also 13 papers, again, both from academia and industry, all providing useful insights into the practice of user-
centred design with digital technologies.  The theme for this year’s conference is Boom or Bust, and a number of our 
papers will reflect on how research and design practice is being shaped by the global economy and climate considerations. 
Edinburgh Napier University are also providing a useful interactive session during the final afternoon where you’ll use 
rapid ethnography to explore design issues in the technologically-enriched urban space.

We use the middle evening productively with a showcase event.  This year we will have a wide range of creative 
interactive designs on display, including student work from Dundee University, Edinburgh Napier University, Middlesex 
University and the Nottingham Mixed Reality Lab. There will be a chance to interact with the exhibits and talk to the 
exhibitors over a glass of wine.

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 on how refreshing it is to attend a small, friendly conference with 
a good mix of academics and practitioners and we hope this will continue this year.  The conference is situated in the 
centre of London, making it easy to get to.

Last date for registration is 26 June.  So come along and share your own creative experiences. We look forward to 
meeting you on 1and 2 July at Create2009

CREATE is jointly organised by the Human-Computer Interaction Specialist Group of the Ergonomics Society, and British 
Computing Society's Interaction Specialist Group, and will be held at the British Computer Society conference venue in
