Designing the Digital Future: A Human-Centered Approach to Informatics - Symposium

Fri, 11/07/2014 - 8:45am - Sat, 11/08/2014 - 3:30pm

University of Iowa Capitol Centre (UCC), 200 South Capitol Street, Iowa City

Giving People a Voice in Technology Design

As digital technologies become increasingly ubiquitous in our lives, how they are designed can have significant impact on society. The 2014 Obermann Working Symposium, Designing the Digital Future: A Human-Centered Approach to Informatics, November 7-8, 2014, will showcase, a human-centered approach to technology. This bottom-up approach gives those affected by technologies a voice in their design, seeking to empower rather than replace people. It is a growing multi-disciplinary area within the larger field of informatics that intersects with narrative, the arts, collaborative learning, dance, diversity, social justice movements, values sensitive design, visual thinking, and more.

This is a “working symposium” because in addition to discussing their current research, our speakers will engage the audience in exploring current trends in the fields of human-computer interaction and informatics. The event will include panels of UI artists, scholars, and researchers whose work falls under the broad umbrella of informatics. We also welcome you to join us for an “agenda lunch” to learn more about the interdisciplinary fields of human-computer interaction and informatics and imagine opportunities on campus. We hope the Symposium will surface cross-disciplinary research and teaching possibilities here at the University of Iowa.
