*Usability Professionals Assemble in Washington DC for User Focus 2007*

Washington, DC, August 31, 2007 The Washington, DC Metro chapter of the
Usability Professionals' Association (UPA) is pleased to announce that
registration has opened for User Focus 2007. This second annual usability
conference, to be held on Friday, October 12, 2007 at the Renaissance
Washington DC Hotel, is a one-day exchange of ideas and experiences that
demonstrate the value of usability in successful design.

User Focus 2007 is a unique opportunity to learn about important trends,
cutting edge methodologies, and case studies in creating user-friendly
products and services. The keynote address, The Dawning of the Age of
Experience, will be delivered by Jared Spool, a well respected leader in the
field of usability and design since 1978. Other highlights include a panel
on Web 2.0, a presentation on the Future of Usability, and two tracks of
presentations that offer the latest research, techniques and best practices,
for people new to usability as well as experienced practitioners. Three
optional 90-minute tutorials provide extra depth on software design and
usability testing topics.

Last year's conference was a sell out, so attendees are encouraged to
register early. Early bird pricing will be offered through September 15.
