The Interaction Design Association (IxDA) and the Savannah College of
Art and Design (SCAD) are proud to announce Interaction 10 in

We’ve got lots of new ideas this year, and three new ways for you
to get involved! Here’s a taste of what’s in store:

* Discussions, Activities, Demos, Presentations -- We want you to get
engaged! We're evolving the sit-and-listen conference formula to have
you learn from each other. New sessions that you can lead can create a
discussion, run a group activity, or demonstrate a case study or idea.
See below for how you can submit a session proposal to lead a
discussion, activity, demonstration or presentation. Speaker
submissions close on September 15, 2009.

* Inspirational Speakers -- Learn from industry leaders and other
surprise guests as they share their vision of the interaction design
world.

* Workshops -- Half-day workshops prior to the conference are
designed to give you a deep dive into topics that will give your
interaction design skill set the boost it deserves.

* Community Documentaries -- This year see the debut of two community
documentaries that assemble voices from around the world to understand
the amazing breadth of interaction design.
-- "Interaction Design: What's That?" gathers the variety of
opinions globally around how we understand our field.
-- "Interaction Design: A Day in the Life" documents the daily
tasks and habits around how we do our work.
This means you! See below to learn how you can submit a short video
to this ground-breaking project.

* Art Exhibition -- Design meets Art. An exhibition exploring
“interaction” in new and interesting ways, featuring works by
your fellow designers, and maybe even you. See below to learn how you
can submit an exhibition proposal.

* Local Design Challenge -- Join your fellow conference attendees as
IxDA partners with the Creative Coast Alliance to tackle a design
challenge that benefits the local community.

* Student Competition -- Meet the designers of tomorrow in the
student competition, hosted by SCAD.

* Receptions -- Two receptions on Friday and Saturday evenings for
mingling and meeting your community.

We want you to participate in Interaction 10! This is your conference
and we want to hear what you have to say. Visit the Interaction 10
