India HCI 2022 (Bits Hyderabad)
The world is currently at a delicate crux. Unmindful consumption of resources has on the one hand put extreme strain on natural resources and risks tipping over the global climate balance, on the other hand, it has increased the disparities between groups of people with access to resources and those without access.
Appropriate Design and Innovation aim to popularise the concept of locally relevant and sustainable design which keeps the people at the center. Appropriate Design is affordable and accessible by even non-mainstream and marginalized user groups. It uses local resources and is mindful of local socio-cultural norms. It is sustainable and minimizes the strain on the environment.
At India HCI 2022 we wish to put the Appropriate Design principles into focus, with the aim of creating more inclusive design and technology which makes the world a better place.
The conference is a platform to discuss & debate ideas that will help us create a better world and be prepared for such unforeseen disruptions. We welcome everyone associated with the HCI community to join us in celebrating this festival of design and innovation.
