UrbanIxD Symposium: city | data | future (Sep 2014, Venice Italy)
March 12, 2014 1 Comment
Dates: 25 September 2014
Location: Venice, Italy
Deadline for submissions: 15 May 2014
Alongside the UrbanIxD exhibition taking place in Venice, the project is presenting a one-day symposium to encourage debate and discussion around the themes of the exhibition, and of the UrbanIxD project itself. This exhibition is a culmination of the work that has been carried out over the two-year duration of the UrbanIxD project, in particular the work of the Summer School held in 2013.
We are seeking submissions that address the exhibition and UrbanIxD project themes in novel and inspiring ways, drawing on original work. We hope that the symposium will encourage debate around the key research challenges for the future of the new domain of Urban Interaction Design. This domain seeks to place people at the centre of design for interactive products and services in the urban environment.
The UrbanIxD project invites submissions in the form of position papers, case studies and posters, from the academic, public, industry and research sectors. We would particularly like to encourage submissions from students and “early career” researchers. This interdisciplinary symposium is aimed at participants from domains such as:
• Interaction Design
• Urban Design & Planning
• Media Architecture
• New Media Art
• & other related fields
We are seeking unpublished work under the following categories:
Position papers (max 4 pages):
These can be academic or research based works putting forward critical or speculative viewpoints about interactions in hybrid urban space.
Case studies (max 4 pages):
These can be practice based works that encourage speculation about interactions in hybrid urban space.
Posters, with Abstracts
For poster submissions, please send an abstract of 2 pages max. If accepted you will produce a printed poster to bring and display at the symposium.
All accepted work will be published by the UrbanIxD project and made available online. It is the intention of the project to collaborate with selected authors towards a special edition of a relevant academic journal.
