The people behind the upcoming Interaction14 conference invite you to attend a panel discussion in Milan on the "Long View of Interaction Design".

On Monday 8 April at 6pm (on the eve of the Salone del Mobile), Claudio Moderini, Fabio Sergio, Jan-Christoph Zoels and Todd S. Harple will debate with Alok Nandi on how to design for those interaction design challenges that go beyond the immediate consumer product/service launch cycle.

What if your interaction design has to be integrated in a hospital or a building or a city? How do you design if your creation has to last 10, 20 or even more years into the future? What tools can you use as an interaction designer? How do you make it adaptive and resilient? How to avoid obsolescence?



Attendance: free and open to the public

Location: Domus Academy, via Carlo Darwin 20, Milan (Navigli area)

Sponsor in kind: Domus Academy (thank you!)

Disclosure: I am the behind the scenes organizer of it all.

Wow, that sounds like a fantastic time! I wish I could be there.

Do you plan to capture it somehow? Maybe a series of short videos after the discussion for each participant to speak about major points that were made? Or simply text notes?

The video of the event is now online. Due to technical difficulties, sound only starts at 0:10:15 and really runs smoothly as of 0:12:40, when Anna Meroni (an added speaker from the Service Design program of the Milan Polytechnic) starts speaking. This is an IxDA organized event, as a prelude to the Interaction14 conference in Amsterdam.
