2nd European Conference on Interactive Television: Enhancing the Experience
|Pre-conference programme Accommodation||
Practitioner Round Table
Friday 2 April 10.30 - 12.30What:
A forum for professionals from around the UK, where producers, technologists, designers and academics can meet and discuss the issues and challenges of developing applications for today’s evolving interactive TV market.
Most conferences are aimed at business development personnel with the cost of registration prohibiting employers from sending other staff. There are very few opportunities for members of production teams to meet and discuss issues of common concern. Less so to discuss on air applications with the people who actually built them. Yet there are many teams working across many companies who are tackling the same issues with no support network. The Euro interactive TV round table aims to bridge this gap. Built around the academic conference model of low cost universal registration the round table will facilitate networking between practitioners. This will be followed by a poster session in which posters detailing past or current projects will be displayed and reviewed by the group. This will provide an excellent opportunity to develop pitching and presentation skills in an informal atmosphere.
Finally we will aim to detail some guidelines on issues of design and usability that will be presented to the conference as a whole through a group poster and published in the proceedings.
Cost: £50 per delegate (please use the conference registration form)
3 for the price of 2! Send 3 delegates from the same company and receive the third registration free.
