Event: Portugal Keynote

Social Media Keynote in Portugal by Laurel Papworth

I’m off to the Algarve in Portugal! woot! From DBWorld blog

Algarve, Portugal, 20 to 22 June 2009
part of the IADIS Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (MCCSIS 2009)
Algarve, Portugal, 17 to 23 June 2009

* Keynote Speaker (confirmed):
Laurel Papworth, Social Network Strategist, Australia

* Conference background and goals
The IADIS Interfaces and Human Computer Interaction (IHCI) 2009 conference aims to address the main issues of concern within Interface Culture and Design with a particular emphasis on the affective aspects of design, development and implementation of interfaces and the generational implications for
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. 😛

  1. Enjoy the Algarve Laurel! June is a great time to visit!
    Perfect weather and not too crowded!

    Enjoy the fantastic gorgeous beach at Praia da Rocha, the beautiful riverside at Portimão and catch a boat to Silves.

    Silves is architecturally unique in the Algarve. With it’s imposing castle and cathedral the town is immediately captivating but is also incredibly relaxing. Surrounded by orange and almond trees the town has a cork museum worth visiting.

    If you get a chance you should also experience Monchique. Monchique has beautiful plant-decorated alleyways and a delightful spa. From Monchique’s summit at Pico da Foia you’ll be able to sample the beautiful panoramic views of the green mountains and countryside as well as the fabulous west coast.

    Lagos is a ‘slow’ city with lots of history, relaxed atmosphere and lovely beaches.

    All of these are easily accessible from your conference venue in Carvoeiro!
    I hope you have a great time!
