The Interaction Design Association (IxDA) announced Interaction 09, to be held February 5-8, 2009 in conjunction with Simon Fraser University's School of Interactive Arts + Technology, and the Faculty of Business, located in lovely Vancouver, B.C.
Mark your calendars now for what promises to be another exciting and informative conference centered around the design of interactive systems of all types, from web and desktop applications, to mobile devices, consumer electronics, digitally-enhanced environments, and more. This will be second annual opportunity to gather with several hundred other Interaction Design professionals from around the world.
Building on the successful format of Interaction 08 at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Interaction 09 will span four days, with two and a half main conference days preceded by 1 and a half days of pre- conference workshops and activities. Thursday will be devoted to a diverse and valuable series of professional workshops. Friday will be a busy and exciting day, with tours, additional workshops and opportunities to explore SFU, its surrounding community and Vancouver, along with leadership and organizing activities in the morning. The conference will open Friday afternoon, with a welcoming reception that evening.
Saturday and Sunday will be packed with inspirational and tactical sessions geared at anyone who practices Interaction Design.
