Aalborg UniversityThe Eighth Danish HCI Research Symposium (DHRS08) will be held at Aalborg University, Thursday November 20, 9.00-21.30 Selma Lagerlöfsvej 300.

We are happy to announce the Eight Danish Human-Computer Interaction Research Symposium under the theme ‘HCI Retro: What to keep and what to let go’ The symposium will include an invited keynote speaker in addition to a number of paper presentations and poster sessions. Since 2001 the annual Danish Human-Computer Interaction Research Symposium has stimulated networking and provided an overview across the various parts of the Danish HCI research scene. Previous symposia have been hosted by University of Aarhus (2001 and 2006), University of Copenhagen (2002), Roskilde University Centre (2003), Aalborg University (2004), Copenhagen Business School (2005), IT University Copenhagen (2007). This year's symposium will continue the tradition.


Marianne Stokholm [1], Professor and experienced practitioner in industrial design has accepted the challenge of being this years keynote. Marianne is experienced in design of interactions (vs. products) and we are looking forward to get inspiration from her knowledge and domain.
