all for Submissions: IxDA's interaction'09|vancouver The Interaction Design Association (IxDA) is now accepting submissions for its second annual conference to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia on February 5-8, 2009. Submissions are for Lightning Round slots, each of which is 25 minutes in duration around a single topic. Single or duo speakers are allowed, but no panels. There are 28 open Lightning Round slots. Lightning Round speakers will receive free admission to the conference. Topics for Lightning Round should relate to the field of interaction design. We are particularly interested in methods, prototyping techniques, practice, communicating design intent, design inspiration from other disciplines, mobile, physical computing, ubicomp, and information visualization. We are interested in fields related to interaction design (e.g., information architecture, visual and industrial design, coding), but only as they relate to interaction design. The deadline for submissions is August 31, 2008. Lightning Round speakers will be determined by the IxDA Conference Committee and announced on October 1, 2008. You will need to provide a 100-150 word abstract for your session and a 75-100 word bio. There is only one submission per person, so submit your strongest idea. The IxDA Conference Committee Greg Petroff, Chair
