Core IA
From Strategy to Structure (and Back Again)
Jorge Arango
In a multi-channel reality, conceptual modelling can serve as a powerful bridge between your organisation’s strategy and the structures that get built into digital products. From the fundamental theory to the practical implementation, this workshop will explain how.
Content & UX Design
Object-Oriented UX: Designing Elegant, Modular Systems
Sophia Voychehovski
This workshop will take you on an in-depth journey through the basics of object-oriented UX. You will design (and learn about the value of designing) systems using recognisable components that match the user’s mental model.
Connected World
Mapping Data
Kerstin Mehle
Victor Zwimpfer
Mapping puts the focus on the relationship between our mental models and the environment. In this workshop, we will take some of these indicated trails and attempt to map out our world at the moment.
Strategy & Management
Design Sprints at the BBC
Dan Ramsden
Cyrièle Piancastelli
Luisa Sousa
Rob Scott
A design sprint is a very powerful way to develop ideas in a short amount of time. This workshop will teach you how to get started, sharing the ideas and techniques used at the BBC.
13:00 - 14:00
14:00 - 14:45
Privacy as Default – Concept for Privacy of the Internet of Things
Lutz Schmitt
If the new Internet of Things really is everywhere and if it doesn’t come with a switch to shut it off, then what does this mean for privacy? And who should be taking responsibility for this?
Designing for Data Tools that Talk to Sensors and Talk to People
Ellis Neder
Exploring the challenges encountered when visualising data collected from both sensors and devices, but also from people. How do we combine and visualise these two potentially quite different forms of information?
14:55 - 15:40
The Object, the Actor and the Network
Stuart Curran
Before diving excitedly into the world of connected products and IoT, it’s essential to first step back, and really understand what it is that connects us, and why. This talk will introduce you to the tools required to gain this understanding.
Thinking Beyond the Screen
Hany Rizk
Let’s think beyond the screen for a second and consider how we, as designers, can begin leveraging today’s ubiquitous technologies to come up with subtle, non-intrusive solutions for real world problems.
15:50 - 16:10
How Do You Deal with Information Everywhere?
Natacha Hennocq
In the light of recent advances in neurosciences, let’s gain an understanding of our placemaking abilities and how embodied cognition and deduced reckoning affect how we reason.
Learning From a Connected Africa
Rahel Anne Bailie
Sharing knowledge from African practitioners in various technical organisations, we’ll have a look at how they are doing things differently. Broadening our perspectives on what it means to have interoperability within complex systems.
16:10 - 16:40
Coffee break
16:40 - 17:25
Architecture Before Experience
Bogdan Stanciu
Considering how we might affect the way hospital-based medical systems approach human-centered design, we can take a look at the greater context of these systems. Is there a digital revolution inbound for the health?
Internet of Food: Smart Interfaces to Connect People and Crops
Antonella Turchetti
Vittorio Arenella
Considering the Internet of Things beyond human and device interactions, and in the context of agriculture. What is the value in devices communicating directly with plants and crops?
17:35 - 18:20
Alanus von Radecki
How will connected things change our lives on larger scales?
18:30 - 20:30
Friday Evening Event
