14:00 Distributed Design
with: John Chris Jones, Olia Lialina, Hayo Wagenaar, chair: Femke Snelting
The web amplified an explosion of non-professional design. This panel 
will ask what happens to design once it becomes a non-specialist 
network process.

16:30 Meaning Structures
with: Steven Pemberton, Angela Beesley, Schoenerwissen/OfCD, 
Moderator: Richard Rogers
As automated site-design becomes increasingly important, the history 
of the interweaving of technology and culture up to the point of 
semantic engineering is mapped out.


11:00 Digital Work
with: Danny O'Brien, Michael Indergaard, Rosalind Gill, Moderator: Geert Lovink
Can we redesign work? From economics, sociology and design, key 
observers and critics of the changing patterns of work in web design 
will comment on the decade and encourage you to have your say.

14:00 Modeling the User
with: Helen Petrie, Geke van Dijk, Peter Luining, Moderator: Caroline Nevejan
Creativity and usability have often been set up as the two key poles 
of web design. This panel asks instead for a more sophisticated 
narrative about  the change in understanding of user needs and 
desires over the last ten  years.

16:30 Plenary Session With all speakers.
