What is it?

The HCID Open Day is a mini conference run by the Centre for Human Computer Interaction Design (HCID) at City, University of London. Each year we invite in guest speakers from industry and academia to talk about UX / HCI / Interaction Design and related fields.

The theme for this year will be ‘Design for Good’ and will focus on how design can be used to positively impact society, designing for inclusion and the moral implications of design. The Centre for Human Computer Interaction Design (HCID) have chosen this topic as we believe it reflects the kind of work we are currently doing and that all designers have the power to enact positive change. The day will close with us presenting our vision for HCIDs future.

This year’s event will be on Tuesday 18th June 2019. The day will start at 10:30am with an opening keynote TBC. We will then have concurrent talks running until 6:30pm where we will retire to a nearby pub for drinks.

This year we have confirmed speakers from Alzheimer's uk, Cancer Research UK, Barclays, AbilityNet and the Open Source Design Collective with more neing confirmed all the time! We will also have a demo area where attendees can get to grips with tech demos! For more details on speakers and talks, please check out the HCID2019 website. The full schedule will be released closer to the date of the Open Day.

Why should I go?

We had around 200+ people through the doors last year! The audience represents a variety of fields including UX, digital, design + creativity professionals with a smattering of academics and professional students. This year we are also hoping to attract members or London's vibrant start-up community.

The Open Day is a great opportuntiy to learn, network and meet people who may be recruiting or potential recruits. Previous keynotes have been from eBay, Google, Virgin, Microsoft, and Facebook. You can see our HCID 2016 highlights video for a feel of the day.
