The »Innovationsforum Interaktionsdesign« was a two-day conference, organised by Prof. Boris Müller and Steffi Hußlein. It was held on the 30th and 31st March 2007 in the new home of the Hans Otto Theatre Potsdam.
The aim of the conference was to focus on all aspects of interface and interaction design: mobile telephone and media interfaces, problem solutions und product visions, web pages and virtual worlds, art und commerce, business and science. The conference was financed by the Federal German Ministry of Education and Research’s fund for »Interregional Alliances for Tomorrows Markets«.
Using both concrete projects and visionary concepts, current developments in interaction design were presented and discussed by regional and international experts from the design, research and business worlds.
The conference was a great success. Over 500 international guests attended the conference. All presentations during the conference were filmed videotaped and are now available on the conference website. We were very proud, when Bruce Sterling called the Innovationsforum one of the best organized conferences he ever attended.
