    Create10 - The interaction design conference

    Edinburgh Napier University, UK, 30 June - 2 July 2010

    Oli Mival is a Senior Research Fellow at Edinburgh Napier University's Centre for Interaction Design. His PhD examined the impact of technology on real world creative practice. In 2003 Oli founded and managed Those Media Guys, a film and media production company based in Edinburgh whose clients included Channel 4, BBC, RBS and Warner Bros. 

    Returning to academia, in 2006 he oversaw the interaction design elements of the €15m EU funded Companions project. In 2009 he worked on the design, development and construction of the Interactive Collaborative Environment, a major technology showcase and research base for Edinburgh Napier University. He is now Director of the Future Interactions Network which explores the design, development and impact of future and emerging technologies on real world people, practice and places www.futureinteractions.net

    John Bonner has over 20 years experience gained in the fields of human factors, product and interaction design in both academic and commercial environments. After graduating with a degree in Ergonomics from Loughborough University, he became a research associate at HUSAT Research Institute. As an ergonomics design consultant he worked on a wide range of projects including usability studies, interface design and physiological studies. On returning to academia, John taught ergonomics and industrial design at Teesside University. Having moved to Huddersfield University in 1999, he completed a PhD in interaction design from Loughborough University. With research interests in interaction design and ubiquitous computing he set up a small research group known as live:lab. www.livelab.hud.ac.uk

    Michael Smyth is a Reader in the Centre for Interaction Design, Edinburgh Napier University, UK. He has worked in the fields of Human Computer Interaction and Interaction Design since 1987 and during that period has published over 50 academic papers in refereed journals, books and conferences. In addition he has had interactive installations exhibited at both UK and international conferences and arts & design festivals. He is co-editor of the book entitled Digital

    Shaleph O'Neill is the Course Director for the Interactive Media Design programme at the University of Dundee. He initially trained in fine art, as a sculptor, where his interest in the communication of meaning lead to the production and exhibition of artwork that explored the use of semiotics. In 2001, he began a PhD at Napier University under Prof. David Benyon’s supervision, which applied his artistic background and interest in semiotics to the issues of user interface design. He has worked as a research assistant on the EU funded BENOGO project in the Future and Emerging Technologies programme of Framework 5. Investigating the issue of ‘presence’ in virtual environments, he developed a phenomenological understanding of how to communicate a sense of ‘place’ within virtual environments. www.computing.dundee.ac.uk
