Alumni Seminar 2021

20 Years Interaction Design!

The Alumni Seminar takes place on Thursday 9 December 2021, 16:00 – 20:00!

This year IAD also celebrates its 20th anniversary! Founded in 2001 by Prof. Dr. Gerhard M. Buurman, IAD and its team have evolved together with its alumni and students in manifold directions that no one could really have foreseen. This anniversary really marks an important moment, from which IAD will evolve further into truly novel as well as uncanny territories.

On this occasion a special Alumni Seminar will be held - the largest to date - to reflect on the past years and think about the future paths.

Over 20 alumni from each year will talk about their unique way after graduation. It is a platform to meet old contacts and study friends and to hear where they have been headed, inspiring students, alumni and future students alike.

➡️ For the general public, the Alumni Seminar will be held online as we have limited places. Please register here for the webinar.

➡️ Alumni, students and potential future students we warmly invite you for an on-site event at Toni-Areal, ZHdK! We are excited to host you at the event. Unfortunately, the evening program as well as the apéro are cancelled due to the epidemiological development.

‼️ Please note that the on-site event is exclusive to alumni, students and potential students! Admission to the auditorium only with registration, as seats are limited.
We require a valid Covid certificate. Masks are mandatory in all ZHdK buildings.

✉️ Alumni please register via the personal invitation email. For potential students, please contact Marcial Koch.

Please don't hesitate to contact Marcial Koch or Duy Bui for inquiries.

See you on Thursday 9 December!

We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free Alumni Seminar for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion.

We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Anyone violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the Alumni Seminar at the discretion of the event organizers.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to:

  • Verbal comments reinforcing social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity, and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking or following
  • Harassing photography or recording
  • Sustained disruption of talks or other events
  • Inappropriate physical contact
  • Unwelcome sexual attention
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behaviour

We expect participants to follow these rules at all event venues and event-related social activities.

If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome during the Alumni Seminar, please do not hesitate to report the incident to one of our IAD team members on-site.

This anti-harassment policy is based on the example policy from the Geek Feminism Wiki, created by the Ada Initiative and other volunteers.
