Create10: The conference for innovative interaction design (Jul 2010, Edinburgh UK)

Dates: 30th June – 2nd July 2010
Location: Edinburgh Napier University, Edinburgh UK

The Create10 conference is seeking submissions in the form of full papers, workshops, short presentations, demonstrations and exhibits. This year’s theme is Transitions.

We invite case studies of innovative design from the commercial, academic, public, government and research sectors. Cases can come from any paradigm – the web, mobile and hand held, products or consumer electronics. We would particularly like to encourage submissions from students. They will be given the opportunity to showcase and discuss both finished work and work-in-progress in a supportive environment.

The Create conference centres on the discipline of interaction design, a young disciple with roots in human-computer interaction, ergonomics, product and graphic design, multi-media and art. An interaction designer is a difficult person to pigeon hole and can be found in mobile phone companies, consumer product manufacturers, design consultancies, as a single practitioner, or within academic computing and design departments.

We are seeking original, unpublished work under the following categories:

Full Papers (2 stage submission)

  • High quality academic papers for peer review (max 6 pages)

Other Submissions (single stage)

  • Practical half-day workshops
  • Short papers and/or case studies from practitioners within the field
  • Short presentations and/or posters from students to be presented in informal student sessions
  • Demonstrations and/or videos of installation-based exhibits or creative work in progress

Please note that all successful authors will be expected to pay to register for the event.

Important Dates

Submissions of :
max 1 page abstracts for papers : 15th March 2010
max 2 page proposals for all other submissions : 31st March 2010
Notification of acceptance : Early April 2010

Student Design Competition

In addition to the above call Create10 is organising a unique competition for students.
Today’s art, design and technology students are the people who will be defining what the interdisciplinary field of interaction design will become in the near future. Create10 is a conference that celebrates innovative interaction design, whether digital products, services, environments or new interaction paradigms.

This competition is aimed at students from a wide range of disciplines, for example: interaction design, product design, industrial design, communications design, architecture, fashion, multimedia, HCI, and related fields. Students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, can enter for up to a year after completing their studies.

Entries will be assessed by a jury of leading creative design practitioners and academics: Dr Shaleph O’Neill, Mark Daniels, Anab Jain, Crispin Jones, Di Mainstone, Christopher Pearson.

All selected submissions will be exhibited at the Create10 conference exhibition in June/July 2010 in Edinburgh, at New Media Scotland’s Inspace. There will be one free conference place available for each successful entry, as well as access to assistance with travel.
