Welcome!

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.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the organising committee. We are currently putting together an exciting programme of talks and demos, with all keynote speakers confirmed. We look forward to your submissions!

We would like to thank the University of Nottingham Faculty of Science and ACM SIGCHI for generously sponsoring the symposium.
