HCID Open Day 2019 – Call for Speakers, Demos and Sponsors!!

The HCID Open Day is returning on Tuesday 18th June 2019!

For those who don’t already know, the HCID Open Day is a free event where we invite in guest speakers from Industry and Academia to talk about UX / HCI / Interaction Design and related fields. The day is made up of concurrent talks / workshops with keynotes at the start and end of the event. Previous keynotes have been from Google, eBay, Ideo, Modern Human and Fluxx. The event provides a great opportunity to share knowledge, network, and meet potential hires. Last year we had around 200 people through the doors!

This year’s event will start at 10:30am, and run until 6:30pm, followed by an after party at a nearby pub!

We are currently looking for speakers to share their knowledge with the London’s digital / UX community and sponsors that are able to pay for refreshments throughout the day.

For those interested in Speaking, Demoing or Sponsoring
Talks typically last 20-25 minutes followed by 10 minutes for questions.

The theme for this year will be ‘Design for Good’ and will focus on how design can be used to positively impact society, designing for inclusion and the moral implications of design. The Centre for Human Computer Interaction Design (HCID) have chosen this topic as we believe it reflects the kind of work we are currently doing, and that all designers have the power to enact positive change. The day will close with us presenting our vision for HCIDs future.

If you are interested in speaking / demoing at or sponsoring this event then please send an e-mail introducing yourself with a suggested topic to stuart.scott.2@city.ac.uk.

We are looking to get all speakers confirmed by mid-April.

For those interested in attending
We are still in the planning phases at the moment please keep an eye out on our Twitter account @cinteractionlab, where using #HCID2019 we will announce speakers as they are confirmed and release ticket information.

Look forward to seeing you there!
