Our speakers come from a rich variety of occupations. This conference seeks to discuss design and understanding in a broad context. We are as interested in what led people to make what they made as much as the finished experiences. Talks should be insight rich, with reflective, constructive critique.
The speaker timings will be announced at the end of the year.
