INVITATION: Advance for Design 3
- Dear Advance for Design Londoners
This is the invite to the event in Telluride, Colorado I mentioned yesterday. For anyone interested in attending (and having been at the last one I can highly recommend it) it is pressing that they make hotel/flight arrangements _immediately_ after sending in their registration info (to Molly Beverstein at the AIGA, details below). The block booking on rooms is only good until June 8.
it would be great if there were some more people from the UK (or the rest of Europe) at the event.
If anyone has any questions please feel free to email me.
The third Advance for Design summit is going to be held August 11-13, 2000 in Telluride, Colorado.
This is an exclusive invitation for previous Advance for Design attendees and those few whose participation has been requested by previous attendees. The invitation will be extended until we fill 80 spaces, so be sure to secure your spot by registering now!
The core group of attendees from the previous summits who are being invited are listed at the end of this message.
This Advance for Design is intended to advance the objectives the group, first articulated at the Nantucket summit and then developed further in Santa Fe:
* To define the character of experience design
* To define a vocabulary for this emerging discipline
* To develop the professional requirements to practice experience design
* To establish expectations for education students in interaction design
* To communicate to the business community the nature of experience
design in system integration projects
* To plan programming activities that will stimulate thinking about
The means of accomplishing this at the third Advance for Design is through provocation and resolution. We will have general sessions to provoke thinking through presentations of models, we will have presentation of artifacts to provide real projects that struggle with the issues of experience design, then we will have general sessions when we seek to capture observations that will advance our shared understanding of the nature of experience design. This understanding defines experience design as interdisciplinary consistency across platforms, networks and devices.
ARTIFACT SHOW `N TELL SESSIONS
Design cannot be described only in words, and publication of our research and work must include both words and pictures. The Artifact Show `n Tell session is designed to provide a way to continue to describe design by "what we do and how we do it." Participants should bring artifacts-tools you've used in the design process-a paper sketch, a diagram, a demo, a PowerPoint presentation, a framework-anything! Bring a pin-upable or projectable version of this artifact. Also bring it on disk both in pdf (with fonts embedded) and in its native format along with a 1-2 paragraph description or purpose of its use. These artifacts will be made into the proceedings for this meeting.
Artifact sessions will involve short presentations of ten minutes each by participants of the conference, followed by 5 minutes of Q+A (strictly timed, to keep the pace going).
As a humanizing of the three themes for artifacts used in Santa Fe, we will consider them with a different twist in Telluride. Instead of usable, useful and desirable, we will use living, learning, working, playing.
