CREATE 2008 conference on creating innovative interactions

24-25 June 2008, British Computer Society, Covent Garden, London

CREATE 2008 is a 2-day conference about creating innovative interactions, whether digital consumer products, interactive services or interaction paradigms. A conference where the
emphasis is on sharing the wealth of creative ideas we have developed to resolve problems, to create new capabilities, or new functions; where the aim is to spawn further creative designs that can make a difference to people.

This year's theme is "embedding people-centred design in the process of innovation". How do we work together as designers and HCI specialists to come up with people-centred design, and how do we work with others to make our designs a reality?

CREATE 2008 will also feature the CREATE Design Showcase - a forum for people to exhibit and discuss their latest ideas. Visitors to the Design Showcase can engage with a range of innovative
and adventurous projects and meet the designers who created them.

Keynote speakers include:

* Benedict Davies (Google) "Lost in music: When should a phone not be a phone"

* Lucy Stockbridge (Serco) "Integrating people-centred design and innovation processes"

* Britta Burlin (Whirlpool) "Useful, usable & desirable: how Whirlpool Corporation finds balance in
product development"

Please note that registration closes on Thursday 19 June.
