DIS 2012 (ACM conference on Designing Interactive Systems)
June 11-15, 2012
The ACM conference on Designing Interactive Systems is the premier, international arena where designers, artists, psychologists, user experience researchers, systems engineers and many more come together to debate and shape the future of interactive systems design and practice. At DIS 2012 we will turn our focus to what happens when our interactive systems are used “in the wild”. Join us to discuss the opportunities, issues and challenges of interactive systems when they are placed in the lived, everyday experiences of people, institutions and practices.
DIS 2012 will be held in the historic and beautiful city of Newcastle, UK. Situated on the River Tyne, Newcastle is the cultural capital of the North East of England, renowned for its relaxed pace, friendliness and active night life. DIS 2012 will be hosted by Culture Lab, a cross-disciplinary centre for creative and digital technologies research at Newcastle University.
DIS 2012 welcomes submissions from a broad range of researchers and practitioners within the field of interactive systems design research and practice.
