What is Interaction Design ?
Interaction Design (IxD) defines the structure and behavior of interactive products and services. Interaction Designers create compelling relationships between people and the interactive systems they use, from computers to mobile devices to appliances; Interaction Designers lay the groundwork for intangible experiences.

Interaction Design Annual Conference preview - Being and Screen

DOT – DesignOpenTable // informal conversation about “how it works” and much more.

Devised by Alok Nandi, Architempo, DesignOpenTable is a place to explore the multiple dimensions of design, beyond the approaches usually given to the word design.
Interaction Design, Service Design, Experience Design, Strategic Design, … are actual praxis occupying thousands of people in the world and showing how design, a set of (often) human-centered activities, can help shape systems for well-being, in connection to how technologists, scientists, entrepreneurs and managers collaborate with.

A. Conference on "Being and Screen : How the Digital changes the Way we Perceive"
by Stéphane Vial
Presses Universitaires de France, Paris, 2013

The techniques are not just tools, they are structures of perception. They determine the way in which the world appears to us and in which phenomena are given to us. For nearly half a century, the digital technologies provide us with perceptions coming from an unknown world. These beings that emerge from our screens and our interfaces disrupt the idea that we have of what is real and lead us to re-learn how to perceive.

Stéphane Vial
Having received a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the Paris Descartes University, Stéphane Vial is an Associate Professor of Design at the University of Nîmes (France) and a researcher at the ACTE Institute (Sorbonne Paris 1 University). Previously, he was a Professor of Philosophy at the École Boulle, a famous Paris-based school of art and design, and the founder and creative director of LEKTUM, an interaction and web design agency.

This meet-up is taking place with the contributions of IxDA Brussels, Architempo, Klabfab, Design Open Table, ESN Ravenstein Meeting Centre, Design September and Univ. de Nîmes.

The IxDA Manifesto: We believe that the human condition is increasingly challenged by poor experiences. IxDA intends to improve the human condition by advancing the discipline of Interaction Design. To do this, we foster a community of people that choose to come together to support this intention. IxDA relies on individual initiative, contribution, sharing and self-organization as the primary means for us to achieve our goals.
