Just submitted a review to the 12th Student Interaction Design Research conference (SIDeR 2016). This is the second time I’m reviewing for this conference.
This idea behind the conference is to provide a venue for students to publish short papers reporting research conducted and reflections made during their ongoing studies such as outcomes of project courses. Besides presenting and publishing papers this is also an opportunity to get a feel of how the academic world works, to network, and get inspiration from both academic researchers and students. The conference is aimed at students working on projects within the fields of interaction design, informatics, and human-computer interaction.
In my opinion this is a great initiative as there is a lot of interesting and lively projects conducted by students that can inspire both fellow students and researchers, and I’m glad to support this conference as a reviewer.
