There will be 3 new formats to experience at Interaction13... a Pecha Kucha session, the Idea Market and Posters!
Originally started in Tokyo, Japan in 2003, Pecha Kucha has become a
popular presentation format where the presenter shows 20 images, each
for 20 seconds. Pecha Kucha draws its name from the Japanese term for
the sound of conversation ("chit chat"). It's a format that makes
presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
The Idea Market is an active environment where the conference
presenter’s ideas are brought to a vibrant and diverse market and
contributions from conference attendees are exchanged. Conference
presenters will engage with attendees about their pitched ideas,
prototypes, pilot or beta projects and be ready to receive constructive
critique and input to help shape their projects outcome over 3 days of
open and participatory design.
Posters are a format expressing the creative thinking and design
sensibilities of information visualization. While not a traditional
medium for translating interaction, the unique ability of IxDA’s
profession, through the power of design and visual communication, can
express complex ideas and scenarios in beautifully simplistic images;
they allow “passers-by” to engage in a one-to-one conversation with the
presenter or conference attendees.
