interactions magazine
Deadline: November 1, 2001

Beginning early next year we will produce the third annual interactions Special Issue on Design, which is open for submissions from the design community. Once again, we invite design briefs from industry, as well as academia. We'd like to work with you to expose the interactions readership to the broad range of experiences available in current curriculum and practice. Please consider taking advantage of this opportunity to describe to students and fellow practitioners (and potential employees!) how your organization works in this field.

This issue reaches not only the entire subscriber base for interactions magazine, it also reaches everyone who attends the CHI 2002 conferenceĀ—since it will be available free of charge there. For submission guidelines, and to indicate your intent to submit, please contact the Special Issue Editor, Elizabeth Dykstra-Erickson <>. The guidelines will be available by e-mail inquiry only.

Past issues have covered over 30 different organizations including university departments, programs, and projects, and small to very large companies producing software, hardware, and consulting services. This year we would like to particularly encourage small design studios and university research groups to participate.

Final copy (including high-resolution JPEG images of the authors, and an organizational logo suitable for print, preferably in EPS format) is due by November 1, 2001 for print in the March-April 2002 issue of interactions.
