Industry Experiences


Take the opportunity to present and discuss your game-changing experiences with other practitioners and researchers, learn from experts, share your own expertise and make new contacts!

Industry experiences is the venue for business practitioners to present their game-changing concepts, products and services. We welcome proposals from a variety of organisations and game-changing projects and practices, from the area of design (UX, service, interaction, visual etc), user research, technical development, product/project management, entrepreneurship, communication, strategy and more.


An industry experience submission may tell a story of any phase of concept or product development process, as long as it is related to the conference theme of game-changing design. We encourage submissions that describe and demonstrate practices, methods, products or services that has changed the game, for example in terms of:

  • What users and stakeholders can do
  • How practitioners work
  • How research is done or used
  • How the market evolves

Submission formats

The submission is a pdf of max. 6 pages, conforming to the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts 2014 Format. Your submission should include a textual and visual description of the purpose of your project and how it is contributing to changing the game.  The author names should be included the submission, as the review process for Industry Experiences is not anonymised.

Selection process

All submissions will be reviewed by peers from industry and academia. The focus in review will be on the interest for the industry audience and how well the submission enlightens industry realities and experiences.


Selected submissions will be presented on the 25th of October 2016. This is the industry day at the Nordichi conference. The audience is an international crowd of people interested in game-changing practices, representing many great actors in industry and academia.

After the conference, all accepted submissions that conform to the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format will be made available to the conference participants, and published in the ACM Digital Library Database.
