Presentation

Interaction Latin America 2018 (ILA18) is the largest global event of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA). This record was established in its 2017 edition held in Florianópolis (ISA17), with an audience of 1,500 participants.

This year the congress will be in Rio de Janeiro and will expand its previous limits of being a South American congress to cover all of Latin America. Following this moment of geographical expansion, ILA18 proposes as a general theme the expansion of the boundaries of the field of Interaction Design. Our objective is to stimulate the discussion of disciplines and related subjects that are increasingly part of the Interaction Design field, with approaches ranging from sustainability to social inclusion, from neuroscience to cognitive psychology.

We want to promote dialogue among professionals, researchers, teachers, and students conducting discussions that go beyond the practices and processes of Interaction Design, with the objective of getting participants to rethink and discuss their roles as professionals, academics, entrepreneurs, individuals and agents of change.

We’ll be accepting papers focused on Interaction Design and related topics of interest in two different formats: academic papers and market cases. With this, we aim to provide space for professionals as well as teachers, researchers, and students in the academic community to participate.

We also invite the entire Latin American Interaction Design community to participate in the paper selection process. All submissions will be evaluated by an Executive Committee, composed of renowned academics and professionals and by volunteer reviewers selected by the Executive Committee. With this, we expect to increase community participation and boost both volume and diversity of reviews for ILA18.

Here's how to get involved:

Papers selection criteria

  • The relevance of the themes proposed in the paper in relation to the themes of interest of the event: Does the paper cover one or more topics of interest defined by the curatorship?
  • The familiarity with the theme and area of knowledge exposed in the paper: Do the choices of references and research techniques adequately reflect the objectives proposed in the paper?
  • The relevance of references used (where available): Does it have recent references been used to reflect the state-of-the-art in the topics the paper addresses?
  • Shape, style, and clarity of the article: Is the paper correct in terms of spelling, grammar, logical sequence, internal coherence, clarity of argument, lack of ambiguity, and scientific language?

Authors of the approved academic papers will be invited to present them at ILA18. Each approved work will receive a single free pass regardless of the number of authors. This application is not cumulative.

In order to guarantee the diversity of authors, the ILA18 curatorship may limit the choice of only one work per author if the author has more than one approved work.
