    DIS 2016 centres on designerly approaches to creating, deploying and critically reflecting on interactive systems

    Since 1995, the biennial ACM Conference on Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) is the premier, international arena where designers, artists, psychologists, user experience researchers, systems engineers, and many more, come together to debate and shape the future of interactive systems design and practice. DIS is owned by the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI). In the past, DIS has been held in New York, London, Boston, Penn State, Cape Town, Aarhus, Newcastle, and Vancouver.

    DIS 2016 will be held at Queensland University of Technology’s picturesque Gardens Point campus from the 4th to the 8th of June, 2016.

    The conference schedule comprises two days of pre-conference workshops and a doctoral consortium as well as three main conference days packed with peer reviewed paper presentations, demos, panel discussions, and invited keynote speakers of international standing. The social ambience of the conference consists of a welcome reception and a conference dinner.

    The 2016 theme of “fuse” is about exploring the range of new possibilities along the human and technology spectrum – the blurring of any clear divides between analog and digital, atoms and bits, materiality and virtuality, art and design, academy and industry. From mobiles to wearables, bearables, and even injectables, technology is finding its way to be carried by us, on by, and inside us. At the same time do we welcome more and more robots and humanoids into our lives – from Furby, Roomba, Siri, to Jibo. Are we witnessing a fusion of the cyborg with the matrix? What does the future of interactive systems hold? Join us at DIS 2016 to find out.
