IDC 2007 Interaction Design and Children Conference - Aalborg, Denmark

Via UsabilityNews 

Event Date: 6 June 2007 to 8 June 2007

The increased focus on children’s role in the design and evaluation of interactive technologies has provided several interesting research studies and results. Currently, we are aware of the fact that children are very different than adults, they are independent individuals with their own strong opinions, needs, likes, and dislikes, and they should be treated as such.

To address emerging research and development, IDC 2007 will look for papers, demonstrations, posters that may include at least one of the following broad areas: 

-  Emerging technologies for children (e.g., innovative educational simulations, online games, accessible fabrication devices, mobile communications devices, wireless embedded technologies, sensors and actuators, "smart" materials, authoring/programming tools) 

- The impact these technologies can have on children's lives (e.g., in schools, at home, in public spaces) 

- New research methods which give children a voice in the design, development, and evaluation processes (e.g., participatory design methods, usability testing, etc.)

Please refer to the call for papers.
