INTERACT 2013, “Designing for Diversity”

The Conference theme for INTERACT 2013, “Designing for Diversity”, was closely linked to the African context and recognised the interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and intercultural spirit of HCI research and practice.

Organised by the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University and the Meraka Institute of Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in collaboration with UCT, the conference featured various workshops and tutorials. The aim of much of the event was to support the development of HCI in Africa by focusing on the human and social aspects of HCI.
