Over the years, Interaction Design has produced manifold contributions to the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) by elevating among other things the importance of user experience, design practices, creativity, and participation. By having design as part of the conference theme, NordiCHI 2012 wants to recognise the significant vitality of the design community in the Nordic region, including top-level education, world-class industrial and artistic design, and high cultural relevance. As new technologies continue to influence everyday perception of basic concepts such as time and space, sociocultural changes are taking place that demand HCI researchers to examine situations with an open mind. In the recent 18:4 issue of ACM Interactions, Liam Bannon illustrates "how HCI has moved from evaluation of interfaces through design of systems and into general sense-making of our world". NordiCHI 2012 embraces this explorative yet down-to-earth challenge of designing interactive systems for human practices that are still in the making.
