Call for Submissions

We are no longer accepting proposal submissions for Interaction 19 or the Interaction Design Education Summit.


Our full program will be announced shortly.

Why should you give a presentation or workshop at Interaction 19 & the Interaction Design Education Summit?

You will inspire people, and help shape the discipline of interaction design. You will also meet other design leaders from all around the world. More importantly, it will be fun!

Most important, the talk you propose should fit one of the three levels of reflection. Interaction design in flux: What are the key changes? What are the most difficult challenges? What are our responsibilities as a discipline? Experiments: How are you innovating and experimenting? What has worked? What has not? Do you have something to teach the rest of the community? Reinvent yourself: How are you reinventing yourself? What can you share that will help others navigate their reinvention? What do you see as most important role of design in the 21st century?

Who is our audience?

We want to set a stage for advanced, more in-depth topics, so while the conference is open to all, the majority of the audience will be senior designers, tech and creative directors, thought leaders, startup founders, teachers, and beyond.

How are we curating submissions?

Your proposals are peer reviewed by members from the IxDA community - our selection committee.

We are reviewing based on quality, the speaker’s experience, and how well it aligns with the conference themes and other presentations.

Diversity and Accessibility

We want Interaction 19 to truly represent the diversity and the multiple facets of interaction design. Each voice is important.

If you’d need support for translation, coaching, have any doubts or questions, or if we’ve missed something important, please reach out.
