I just came across this site, http://www.glideconference.org/, which is a global conference on interaction design (virtual conference). It seems heavily academic in its focus, but was curious if anyone in this community is familiar w/ the conference and the organization surrounding it.
The IxDA Board of Directors is pleased to put out this open call for Chair of the Interaction|14 conference, to be held in Europe in February of 2014. Applications of interest are due by 30 April, 2012, 11:59 PM EST. We will confirm the successful person by 22 May, 2012.
The Interaction|12 conference was held in Dublin, Ireland on Feb 1-4. The event represents one of the major highlights of the Interaction Design calendar, and sees people from around the world gather together to connect, share and learn.
