When someone says “interface” we immediately think of an interactive screen, a keyboard or a joystick. This is the “user interface” where human beings interact with digital devices. The main purpose of the Laws of Interfaces is specifically to take the “interface” concept way beyond the “user interface” and use it to explore all types of technological and social processes.

Based on the recently published book by Carlos Scolari, The Laws of Interfaces, several lecturers at the Barcelona School of Management and the University of Buenos Aires will rethink the “interface” concept to extend its use beyond digital technology.
What would happen if we analysed political parties as an interface in a crisis that must be redesigned? The same could be said for educational institutions (from primary school to university), syndicates or government structures.

All of this in a roundtable format where experts can share their visions and discuss.
