Design Lab Launches Transporter Talks Series

22 October 2012

The Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning's Design Lab is proud to announce the Transporters Talks Series.

The Transporter Talks is a regular series of talks on human-computer interaction and related disciplines. They are organised by the Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group (CHISIG) a part of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of Australia.

The first talk, held at the University of Sydney last week, was well attended and explored divergent themes of media facades and performer-machine choreography.

The NSW Committee Members, Dr Lian Loke and Dr Martin Tomitsch (both from the Design Lab) have coordinated these talks with other Design and Technology departments around NSW.

The talks involve a 10 minute format, where leading researchers can discuss the relevance of their research and promote collaboration across the many fields relevant to human-computer interaction.

Lian Loke said that the Transporter Talks represent a new public engagement for the Design Lab and an opening-up of research aims.

"The Design Lab is proud to be integrally involved in this talk series. We are designers of the human experience of technology, so exploring the many facets of human-computer interaction is paramount to our work. We are looking forward to collaborating with our partner institutions to develop our research agenda and increase public awareness of interaction factors," Loke said.

The next talk will be hosted by the Interaction Design and Human Practice Lab, University of Technology, Sydney on 8th November.
