Children are using increasingly complex interactive devices and software products, for both entertainment and education. Internationally, interactive technology for children is now a very significant economic sector. Hence, in recent years, there has been a growing interest in methods for the design and evaluation of these products, both in commercial Research and Development departments, and in a range of academic disciplines.

This conference continues the theme of the very successful International Workshop on Interaction Design and Children, held in Eindhoven, Netherlands in 2002. Our aim is to attract a range of papers, posters and interactive demonstrations, covering all aspects of the design and evaluation of interactive technology for and with children. The conference will bring together commercial developers and academic researchers in this multidisciplinary field and will include presentations of research findings, case studies and practical experience.
The conference language is English.
