Halfway to the Future is a two-day symposium in the city of Nottingham, UK exploring the past, present, and future of HCI and design-based research. The symposium will take place on the 19th and 20th November 2019 at the Albert Hall Conference Centre.
The symposium will address a range of key themes with dedicated single-track panels, each anchored by prominent keynote speakers reflecting upon one of their influential works in light of subsequent developments and present concerns. This will be followed by presentations of current related research, short future-oriented provocations, and a panel discussion/Q&A.
The symposium will also incorporate an exhibition of interactive works and a poster session. All papers will be peer reviewed under a double-blind process and some papers will be selected for panels while others will be invited to present their work in poster format.
We would like to thank the University of Nottingham Faculty of Science, Creative and Digital Interdisciplinary Research Cluster, and Smart Products Beacon; ACM SIGCHI, and Microsoft for generously sponsoring the symposium.
