[Symposium website]
Held in conjunction with BCS HCI 2011, CCID2 is a two-day symposium cultural approaches to HCI and interaction design, emphasizing the intersections between critical theory, the arts, creativity, aesthetics, and felt experience and computing.

[Motivations and Goals]
In the past decade, HCIs cultural research agenda has stabilized as an important sub-domain of the field. Approaches include disciplinary inputs beyond the social sciences, including literary theory, critical theory, aesthetic philosophy, feminism, performance theory, film studies, hermeneutics, postmodernism, fine arts, queer theory, and post-colonialism. Following on the success of 2006s First International Symposium on Culture, Creativity and Interaction Design (CCID), CCID2 seek to strengthen the connections among the diverse disciplines contributing to culture, creativity, and interaction design research. It will explore critical and reflective approaches to the design and analysis of interactive technology.

The two-day symposium will bring together a number of leaders in this area as well as reach out to new voices for one day of presentations and demos, followed by a second day of collaborative activities. The symposium will also feature 1-2 keynote speakers from the Arts to help inspire participants and frame key discussion threads.

Those who are interested in attending the symposium are encouraged to submit an abstract of 1000-1500 words to ccid2symposium [at] that address any of the following symposium themes:
* How can the arts contribute to interaction design and creativity research?
* What are the major strategies and methodologies in the arts that can be used for interaction design and creativity research?
* How do we legitimate new design methodologies
* How do we cultivate disciplinary competences in the arts and the humanities for interaction design research?
