The goal of this second Symposium is to seed the Interaction Museum with a set of entries describing interaction techniques. We will take advantage of the colocation with UIST to encourage the authors of interaction techniques to create the corresponding entries. This will also allow us to test and get feedback on the user interface for creating and editing entries.

We ask participants to bring their laptop with materials they deem relevant to the interaction technique(s) they want to describe: papers, images, videos, demos, etc. We will have a wireless network to access the Interaction Museum server and create entries on-site.


The symposium is by invitation only. Participation is limited to 40 people. Please use the on-line form to register as well as to let us know who else to invite.
