Papers On-line
Papers to be presented at ICHIM07 in Toronto are now on-line. But
conferences aren't about people reading papers. They are about seeing
first hand the diversity of work being done, meeting the people doing
it, having conversations and asking questions. So plan to join us in
Toronto for some stimulating discussions and debates. Come away with new ideas.

Opening Keynote: Ian Wilson, Librarian and Archivist of Canada
Ian Wilson, Librarian and Archivist of Canada, will open ICHIM07 with
his thoughts on convergence and content creation in a Web 2.0 world.
A pioneer in shaping the united "memory institution" Ian will
challenge us to consider what it now means "To hold infinity in the
palm of your hand".

Closing Plenary: Ranjiit Makkuni on the Eternal Gandhi

Ranjit Makkuni, of the Sacred World Foundation, India, will speak
about the making of the Eternal Gandhi Multimedia Museum. He will
present a language of physical interface actions derived from
classical symbols of the spinning wheel, turning of the prayer
wheels, touching symbolic pillars, the act of hands touching sacred
objects, collaboratively constructed quilts, sacred chanting in the
collective group, the satsanga and the touching and rotating of
prayer beads. These tradition-based interactions inspire a rich
panorama of tactile interfaces that allow people to access the
multimedia imagery and multidimensional mind of Gandhiji.

Eternal Ghandi was a winner of ID Magazine Design Award in 2006.
