CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

 

For young people today, technology is pervasive in many aspects of life as

they learn and play using computers and other technological devices, build

and maintain friendships, and engage in innovative learning experiences and

other creative activity.  IDC 2011 continues the IDC tradition of exploring

and expanding the landscape of interaction design and children to understand

children¹s needs and how to design for them by gathering the leading minds

in the field of interaction design and children to present and discuss

innovative research and exhibit the most recent developments in design and

technology for young people.

 

IDC 2011 would like to invite you to discuss the wide diversification of

technology (e.g., ranging from computers to mobile phones to innovative uses

of digital media, games, and other interactive technologies) for young

people of different profiles, ages (very young children to adolescents) and

psychological, social, and physical needs in different contexts (e.g.,

museums, classrooms, playgrounds, etc.).

 

Additionally, we would like to explore work addressing our conference theme

"Designing When Boundaries Blur: Reshaping Interaction Design in the

Pervasive Technology Landscape" to discuss the opportunities and challenges

that arise as technology becomes more pervasive.  As some technologies

shrink (e.g., networked, mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets) and

other technologies expand (e.g., large displays, embedded technologies,

haptic interfaces), what does this pervasive technology landscape mean for

interaction design?  The boundaries are now blurred in ways that cause us to

reshape and rethink the research and design approaches that we use for our

work on interaction design and children, especially as we consider

technology use across contexts; the types of artifacts that children can now

view, create, and interact with; and the instruments we use for our own work

on design and evaluation.

 

We hope that you can contribute and join us for our tenth anniversary as we

reflect on our work, examine these and other issues, develop new IDC

directions for the next ten yearsŠand have a little fun while we're at it!

SUBMISSIONS

 

Submissions of workshops, full papers, short papers, and demos, are invited

on all topics from the domain of interaction design for children, including,

but not limited to:

 

Methods, techniques, and guidelines for requirements analysis, design, and

evaluation of interactive systems for ³children as a diverse group² (young

people of different gender and age, with special needs, from different

cultures or ethnical groups).

 

Emerging or new technologies for children (e.g., innovative educational

simulations, interactive games, mobile communications devices, wireless

embedded technologies, robots, accessible fabrication devices, ³smart²

materials, authoring/programming tools).

 

The impact that such technologies can have on children¹s lives and

personalities.

 

Ethnographic and case studies of children¹s use of interactive systems in

schools, at home, in hospitals, in public spaces.

 

Usability, enjoyability, accessibility, and safety issues, with particular

reference to children.

 

Novel theoretical models of interaction with special relevance to children.

 

Design for children¹s civic involvement, democracy, physical and emotional

well-being, and social awareness of environmental, ethical, ethnographical,

or cultural issues.

 

Interactive technology for children from an adult¹s perspective.

 

All accepted full papers, short papers, and demos, will be presented at the

IDC 2011 conference, and will appear in the IDC 2011 proceedings.

Proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library
