SIDeR 2020

SIDeR 2020 2-3 October 2020, Aarhus University, Denmark

Welcome to the official website for the Student Interaction Design Research conference (SIDeR).

At this conference we invite students from all over the world to submit their work for evaluation by their peers, as well as each other in the form of papers, posters, demos and workshops. At the conference, the participants will present their work to each other, hang out, make new connections and in general have a good time. As such, the conference tries to bridge the gap between student life and research by taking seriously what students already do - research.

The SIDeR 2020 conference will be held at the IT-City Katrinebjerg, Aarhus University, Denmark.

  • Conference: 2-3 October 2020

  • Submission Deadline: 25 June 2020
  • Notice of acceptance: 17 August 2020

Theme: Responsible Alternatives

At the SIDeR 2020 conference we invite everyone to submit work highlighting different forms of Responsible Alternatives. You are free to interpret our theme as you see fit – it is a theme, not a stringent formula to be fulfilled. We welcome case studies, theoretical musings and couplings of theory and practical work.

Please see the Call for Participation.
