Conference: Human Computer Interaction June 2013

Conference: Human Computer Interaction in Informal Science Education
(HCI+ISE)

June 11-14, 2013 Albuquerque, New Mexico

The HCI+ISE Conference, supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF),
will bring together museum exhibit designers and developers, learning
researchers, and technology industry professionals to explore the potential
impact of new human-computer interaction (HCI) technologies in informal
science education (ISE) settings. Conference theme: the balance between
exhibit technology and visitor experience.

The emergence of multitouch, motion-recognition, radio frequency
identification (RFID), near field communication (NFC), voice recognition,
augmented reality, and other technologies are already beginning to shape
the visitor experience. In this three-day conference, presenters and
participants will share effective practices and explore both the enormous
potential, and possible pitfalls, that HCI advancements present for exhibit
development.

The Conference activities, discussions, and group interactions will explore
technical, design, and educational topics centered on HCI+ISE. A variety of
technology examples such as multitouch tables, touch walls, Arduino
controllers, augmented reality systems, Kinect hacks, RFID tags, and other
prototypes and gear will be demonstrated.

HCI+ISE will focus on the practical considerations of implementing new HCI
technologies in educational settings with an eye on the future. Along with
a survey of how HCI is shaping the museum world, participants will be
challenged to envision the museum experience a decade into future.

Conference events will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the Indian
Pueblo Cultural Center, New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science,
and at Ideum’s Corrales studio.

Attendance at the HCI+ISE Conference is limited to 60 participants, of
which approximately 30 will be invited because of their specific point of
view and expertise, and 30 will be selected through an application process.
Conference participant interactions will provide opportunities for
collaboration and potential partnerships that will persist well into the
future.

Applications are welcome from exhibit developers, designers, educators,
researchers, evaluators, and technologists. Funding from the NSF is
available to help support the travel costs of attendees.
