Conference Theme
Great usability enables our interactions with the technology in our
everyday lives to be productive and comfortable, whether we are
interacting with consumer electronics, medical equipment, factory floor
production lines, websites, retail stores, customer support or
architectural spaces. As we approach digital convergence, this year’s
conference will explore how we create, integrate, and socialize a
sustainable process in design, while at the same time balancing security,
privacy, and convenience.
