This webinar will be structured as a discussion with conference co-chair Paul Blikstein to highlight the benefits of submitting to IDC2017 and tips for writing a successful paper.

IDC 2017 welcomes submissions in the form of full papers, notes, demonstrations, workshops, courses, work in progress / late breaking, and interactive child experiences. There is also a call for participants to submit to the doctoral consortium and for later submission to our Research and Design Competition. Submissions to all tracks (except the research and design competition for which a separate call will be announced) are invited on the following topics:

  • Innovative interactive technologies for children
  • Theoretically motivated arguments regarding interaction design and children
  • Empirical studies concerned with the interaction of children and technology
