Interaction Week 2023

A week like no other

To be defined...
a conference (and a manifesto?)

This conference is a call – a call to rethink decision-making processes that drive the design of technology. Interaction design, together with other fields, faces the role of technology in perpetuating social and environmental injustice.

The inevitable transformations of personal lives and social structures have taken momentum. As hopes of long-term systems change arise, so do doomsday narratives. We invite you to take a stance in the midst of these unstable grounds.

Together, our vibrant community can chart a path for design that dares confronting the realities of global warming, xenophobia, war, lack of basic goods, and the rise of poverty to create a more just and inclusive world.  Come and take a stance in the midst of these new beginnings!

Join us to undesign the defined!

Say hello to Zürich

Zürich unites creative city life and idyllic scenery within the smallest of areas. Art connoisseurs and culture enthusiasts have over 50 museums and more than 100 galleries to choose from, while inquisitive explorers of digital technology and science can connect to world-leading companies and universities. Nature lovers will delight in the city’s location directly by the lake and in its very own mountain, the Uetliberg. In addition, first-class restaurants, bars, and clubs give rise to a vibrant nightlife.

Interaction 23’s main venue will be the new Zürich Convention Center – in the heart of the city right by Lake Zürich.

Short distances, high livability and plenty to discover: the ideal ­destination for the IxDA community to gather in person again for the first time in three years.
