CALL FOR POSITION PAPERS
“Ajax and User Experience Designs” Workshop (June 11, 2007)
2007 UPA Conference (Austin, TX, June 11-15, 2007)

AJAX has been a hot topic since Jesse James Garrett coined the term and published the essay “Ajax: A New Approach to Web Applications” in February, 2005. With the advent of Ajax, new patterns of interaction have emerged and the web has become richer and more responsive.  This trend has presented both opportunities and challenges to user experience designers to help businesses develop solutions to enhance user experiences.

The objective of this one-day workshop is to bring together user experience designers, consultants and user researchers to assess the impact of Ajax on user experience, user experience designs and usability testing, and share best practices in designs, development and evaluations.
