About IDC

IDC is the premiere annual international conference for the top minds in academia and industry to share the latest research findings, innovative methodologies and new technologies in the areas of inclusive child-centered design, learning and interaction.

The conference's mission is to bring together researchers, designers and educators to explore new forms of technology, design and engaged learning among children. IDC incorporates papers, presentations, speakers, workshops, participatory design experiences and discussions on how to create better interactive experiences for children.

Participants often come from a variety of fields, including computer science, communication, child development, engineering, digital media, game design, educational psychology and learning sciences. IDC 2013 will offer a wide-ranging program, supporting and facilitating the exchange of ideas within and between all of these communities, with a special emphasis on supporting DIY/maker culture among children and global inclusion, particularly for at-risk and marginalized populations worldwide.

While IDC 2013 builds on the strong and dedicated community that has developed around this annual conference for the past 12 years, we invite academics and industry professionals, professors and students, pre-K-12 practitioners in formal and informal learning settings, and NYC and non-NYC based scholars alike to join us and to submit proposals.
