About SIDeR

  • The Interaction Design division of the Department of Applied Information Technology at the Chalmers University of Technology is pleased to host the eighth Student Interaction Design Research conference (SIDeR ’12). The conference shall take place on the 22-23rd of March 2012 and will be held in the award-winning ”Kuggen” building, Chalmers’ newest educational centre and home of the Interaction Design MSc. programme in Gothenburg, Sweden.


    The conference was inaugurated in 2005 in Sønderborg as a means of enabling interaction design students to participate in and contribute to research in the emerging discipline of interaction design. A number of prestigious universities have since been hosts to the event. SIDeR offers students the opportunity to bring forth research they have carried out throughout design projects as well as share reflections on design theory through the medium of an academic paper. Throughout the two days of the event, students will be able to meet with colleagues from other universities, share views on the design practice and build a valuable network in the field of interaction design.


    All students at bachelors and masters level are invited to participate in the conference and register, including those who have not submitted a paper. Read more on how to register here. A more detailed program of the two days will follow once the paper submission phase has ended as well as a list of keynote speakers that will be attending the conference.
