strategic asset for business.

Presented by the Institute of Design, IIT, in cooperation with ACM
SIGCHI, the HITS Conference will explore the nature of the link between
user value and business value, and how user-centered design can lead to
more valued, and valuable, interactive experiences with the products,
communications, environments and services of the future.

submissions will be published here on the conference web site. Some may
also be invited to exhibit or present during the conference.
