design of human and technology interaction. This conference aims to explore and discuss innovative studies of technology and its application in interfaces and welcomes research in progress, case studies, practical demonstrations and workshops in addition to the traditional submission categories.

Kinda odd to think I have readers in beautiful, far away, Portugal. Anyway, I think we’ll make it into a bit of a holiday. Take a few days and look around. What do you think?

EDIT: bumping this one up as I’m leaving tonight. Friday 12th June. May blog more, or less, depending on my mood, the weather, food and alcohol on the Algarve. 😛
