      InSync* and AIGA Experience Design invite you to the fiftieth AIGA Experience Design London meeting, which is taking place as part of the London Design Festival.

      Interact! Games Meets Interaction Design

      Games design and interaction design have much in common and a lot to share. Both are mature disciplines, and address sophisticated human-computer interactions. As interaction design has moved towards user experience, games design has crossed back into multi-player gaming and collaboration. What can these disciplines learn from each other today about storytelling, models of interaction, user research and testing, aesthetics, 'learnability', collaborative environments, and product development? Come and discuss these key issues with some of the leading thinkers and doers in the games and interaction design industries.

      Thursday 22 September 2005, 6:15 for 6.30 PM (until 8.30PM)
