Call for proposals - Community talks

Why should you give a presentation at ILA 19?

You will inspire people, and help shape the discipline of interaction design. You will also meet other design leaders from all around the world. More importantly, it will be fun! Most important, the talk you propose should fit one of the six levels of reflection and optionally related to one of our topics.

Levels of reflexion

  • Innovation: How are innovating disciplines changing to meet the new needs of the market?
  • Trends: What factors shaping our technological environment are directly influencing the design of interaction, the relationship between people and society?
  • Methodologies: What mechanisms we are using to recognize and understand users, businesses, and companies to offer valuable experiences?
  • Tools: What free and paid services, programs and utilities can be used and exploited when creating user experiences?
  • Success Stories: How do you show the processes and results of the user experience with validated data?
  • Experimentation: How are you innovating and experimenting? What has worked? What has not? Do you have something to teach the rest of the community?

We want ILA 19 to truly represent the diversity and the multiple facets of interaction design. Each voice is important. If you’d need support for translation, coaching, have any doubts or questions, or if we’ve missed something important, please reach out.
