[Apologies for the cross-posting!]

The deadline to submit sessions to Interaction 08, the Interaction
Design Association's first annual conference to be held in Savannah,
Georgia on February 8-10, 2008, is this Saturday, September 15, 2007.


Submissions are for Lightning Session slots, each of which is 25
minutes in duration around a single topic. Single or duo speakers are
allowed, but no panels, please. Please submit only one idea per
person. There are 14 open Lightning Session slots. Lightning Session
speakers will receive free admission to the conference.

Submissions are easy: a title, abstract, and bio are all that is
necessary. Submit your idea here:


Topics for Lightning Sessions can be around anything relating to the
field of interaction design--anything focused on the behavior of
products and services in response to human action. Our potential
attendees are particularly interested in tactical, practical
information around methods, prototyping techniques, documentation,
mobile, physical computing and information visualization. We are
interested in fields related to Interaction Design (e.g., Information
Architecture, Visual and Industrial Design, Coding etc), but only as
they relate to interaction design.

Lightning Session speakers will be determined by the IxDA Conference
Committee and announced on October 31, 2007.

Thanks, and see you in Savannah!

Was I the only one who couldn't access the surveymonkey site all day
Saturday? Admittedly I only tried three times, and stopped trying at
dinnertime. But now today it says the survey is closed. Is there
another means of submission, such as by email?

Nothing like waiting until the last minute. :)

This is the first I'm hearing of it, and since we got ~40 submissions
on Friday and Saturday, I'm guessing it wasn't a widespread problem.
If this was the case, you can send your submission directly to
interaction08 [at] ixda [dot] org. Submissions include:

Contact Email Address
URL (optional)
Abstract (100-150 words)
Bio (50-100 words)

We'll accept these for the next 24 hours. We have nearly 80 really
top-notch submissions already--thanks to everyone who submitted. The
Conference Committee has its work cut out for it in the next couple
of weeks.
