CALL FOR PAPERS!
Design versus Design
The First Nordic Conference on Computer-Human Interaction
23-25 October 2000, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
The conference is organised by STIMDI (the Swedish
Interdisciplinary Interest group for Human Computer Interaction)
in co-operation with HCI organisations from the other Nordic countries.
The conference is supported through grants from the ACM SIGCHI.
The Scandinavian tradition has made a great impact
on the development of co-operative and user centred design, based
on the traditions of a close co-operation between developers and
users. Scandinavia has also made a significant contribution in driving
the design of mobile devices through Nokia and Ericsson. Scandinavian
design is a well-known style in the design of furniture and interiors.
Despite the existence of several excellent conferences within the
area of HCI we see the need for a discussion forum with a Nordic
perspective. Therefore we invite researchers and practitioners from
all the Nordic countries as well as the rest of the world to submit
and participate in the making of a more usable future.
We encourage submissions within a wide range of
HCI topics, especially focusing upon:
-Scandinavian system development philosophy
-Current research on HCI in the Nordic countries
-Usability and Accessibility
-Information technology in everyday life -Social and psychosocial
effects of IT use
-Art and communication
-Ubiquitous computing and mobile devices
Papers should be written in English, however, we
encourage the authors to add an abstract in their native Nordic
language. All presentations will be held in English.

We encourage submissions of an interactive nature, since this can
be easily reproduced on a CD. However, the format should then include
the player for the specific application. Supported software environments
