Call for Papers: International Conference on Interaction Design 9 – 12 November, 2011

Delight & Responsibility

Organized by
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Tsinghua University
Carnegie Mellon University

Venue: The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design


The second ICID is looking at how interaction design is moving beyond human-computer interaction to creating delightful and responsible individual, social, and organizational experiences.

As innovators, we have the power to craft experiences that are not just delightful when navigating human lives in various contexts from digital navigation to organizational decision making, and social lives, but being sustainable, moral and ethical, or otherwise “responsible”. Despite its popularity, interaction design is either confined to digital culture or remains ambiguous when applied to a broader social and business context. ICID 2011 revisits its definition, language, approaches, and principles with respect to both rigour and intuition on how understanding the very fundamentals of interaction provides new opportunities for applying interaction design as a new approach to rather than a sub-discipline of design.

We would like to invite researchers, practitioners, educators and students to submit papers and case studies on delightful experiences and responsible design in interaction design. We believe that your contribution will not only enrich the knowledge on interaction design, but also include you in the shaping and developing interaction design in China and Asia as it is gaining its recognition in the region.

Areas of interest include:
1. Methodologies
2. Education & Curriculum Development
3. Industry & Business
4. Usability
5. Information Design
6. Social Innovation
7. Service Design

Paper Submission Dates*:

Best regards,
