Delight & Responsibility International Conference on Interaction Design

Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China – November 9-12, 2011

Registration open


The second ICID is looking at how interaction design is moving beyond human-computer interaction to creating delightful and responsible individual, social, and organizational experiences.

As innovators, we have the power to craft experiences that are not just delightful when navigating human lives in various contexts from digital navigation to organizational decision making, and social lives, but being sustainable, moral and ethical, or otherwise “responsible.” Despite its popularity, interaction design is either confined to digital culture or remains ambiguous when applied to a broader social and business context. ICID 2011 revisits its definition, language, approaches, and principles with respect to both rigour and intuition on how understanding the very fundamentals of interaction provides new opportunities for applying interaction design as a new approach to rather than a sub-discipline of design.
