Come to Vienna
The CHI2004 | ICSID FORUM is an inaugural event designed to uncover commonalities and define intersections between design practices and evaluation criteria among members of our two design communities. This event will forge new ties among our specialists in digital and industrial design.
Jointly sponsored by
(International Council of Societies of Industrial Design) and the ACM
(Association of Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Computer Human Interaction), the FORUM will stimulate an exchange of ideas with invited speakers, an intensive hands-on collaborative design exercise and presentations of juried Design Sketches. Join participants from academia, industry, studio and laboratory settings in lively interaction!
The FORUM extends over two days as one of the pre-conference activities for the CHI2004 conference. In addition to a presentation from our internationally renowned keynote speaker S. Joy Mountford, the FORUM speakers present design sketches that emphasize the humanization of technology, whether expressed in physical product design or in digital interaction.
The FORUM also will challenge you with an intensive hands-on exercise creating a design solution for a hypothetical problem presented at the FORUM. Working in small groups, professionals from both disciplines will explore how these two communities of practice approach problem solving, learn new techniques and share experiences. We have reserved time for design solutions from the small groups to be shared before the close of the FORUM.
The FORUM promises to be a unique event, with an upper limit on registration. We encourage all who join in the FORUM to stay for CHI2004. To participate in the FORUM, register at the general CHI2004 Conference site.
The FORUM will be held in conjunction with the CHI2004 conference in the Austria Center, Vienna, Bruno-Kreisky-Platz 1, A-1220 Vienna, Austria, Europe.
