Interact London 2016 - Call for speakers

Nomensa are proud to announce that the wheels are already very much in motion or Interact London 2016. Once again taking place at the British Museum on 18 & 19 October, hundreds of people will be in attendance to watch talks and take part in workshops around 2016's theme: "How will people interact with technology in the future and how do we design for it today?

The two day conference, is a platform for some of the industry’s key players to share their knowledge to a captive UX, IA and design audience. Aiming to provide a mixture of ‘philosophy and practice’, the presentations should explore the theme of how people will interact with technology in the future and how to design for that today.  

Last year the conference showcased 18 speakers from across the globe who delivered groundbreaking talks to over 300 inspired user experience professionals, designers and information architects over both days. Our speakers delivered insights from notable companies such as Argos, Google, Wolff Olins, Macmillan Cancer Support, Tesco PLC and eBay Inc., and this year we’re looking to produce an equally compelling line up.

Last year’s talks included:

Keynote: Vanessa Kirby - The Fables of UX

Keynote: Anjan Chatterjee - The Neuroscience of Aesthetics

Keynote: Simon Norris - UX Maturity: The reality of performance

Keynote: Steve Portigal - The Designer is Present

Pete Trainor - Bigger Hippos and Happier Humans 

Amanda Neylon - Why UX is Important for Charities 

Alastair Campbell - Where UX fails Accessibility 

Sarah Morris - UX & Brand; A Master - Slave relationship? 

...and many more
