Empowering Interactions april 9-10 2013

  • Aarhus University, Denmark
  • April 9-10 2013

Welcome to the official website for the 9th Student Interaction Design Research conference (SIDeR). At this conference we invite students from all over the world to submit their work for evaluation by their peers, as well as each other in the form of papers, demos and posters. 

At the conference, the participants will present their work to each other, hang out, make new connections and in general have a good time. As such, the conference tries to bridge the gap between student life and research by taking seriously what students already do - research. 

The 9th SIDeR Conference will be held at the IT-City Katrinebjerg, Aarhus University, Denmark



Conference: 09-10 April 2013


Submission of papers, poster and demoes: 15 february 2013

Call for participation

Theme: Empowering Interactions
The conference theme for the 9th Student Interaction Design Research conference (SIDeR’13) is Empowering Interactions. Interaction design is now pervasive in all areas of life and there are few activities that are not in some way augmented, supported or even made possible by information technology. People from all walks of life are influenced by technology and in turn influence, appropriate or simply love technology. This has led to new opportunities for empowering people through technology, as well as helping people create technology that empowers themselves or others. This can be seen both as a democratic endeavour that opens up the world of information technology to everyone, as well as a pragmatic way of ensuring that products are actually used after their creation.

At the SIDeR’13 conference we invite everyone to submit work highlighting different forms of empowering interactions. You are free to interpret our theme as you see fit – it is a theme, not a stringent formula to be fulfilled. We welcome case studies, theoretical musings and couplings of theory and practical work.
