Interaction Design (IxD) is the discipline of defining the behavior of products and systems that a user can interact with. The practice typically centers around complex technology systems such as software, mobile devices, and other electronic devices. However, it can also apply to other types of products and services, and even organizations themselves. Wikipedia

IxDA Munich (Germany) is the local chapter of the Interaction Design Association, a member-supported organization without cost of membership. The aim of the local chapter is to promote the field, coordinate meetings and serve the local design community.

IxDA Munich is part of the IxDA Europe network and the IxDA International.

Participate! Want to help with the organizing or have ideas for the meetings? Contact the coordinators: coordinators@ixdamunich.de
