Interaction Design and Children (IDC) is the premiere international conference where researchers from industry and academia, educators, and practitioners share the latest research findings, innovative methodologies and new technologies in the areas of inclusive child-centered design, learning, and interaction. The annual conference incorporates papers, presentations, speakers, panels, workshops, participatory design experiences, and discussions on how to create better interactive experiences for children.

As a business with expertise and experience with themes related to children’s interactive systems, we invite you to become a financial sponsor of IDC 2020. Your sponsorship provides three main benefits to IDC attendees and your company.

  • Your sponsorship will ensure the costs of the conference remain accessible for students and improve the quality of the conference experience for all attendees worldwide.
