*/*TUTORIALS ($275):*/

*Introduction to Usability Testing - Bill Killam
*This is an introductory tutorial on the topic of usability testing. 
This tutorial is intended for usability practitioners looking to expand 
their skills, other practitioners (designers, developers, testers, etc.) 
who may have usability testing interests or responsibilities, and 
management staff that may be considering incorporating usability into 
their organization. In the tutorial we will cover both management issues 
and practical issues of usability testing and discuss what usability 
testing is (and isn't).

*New Methods for Designing for and with the iChild - Allison Druin, Mona 
Leigh Guha, Evan Golub, Greg Walsh*
Today's young people are information active, socially aware, and highly 
mobile. Designing new technologies for today's independent, interactive, 
and information active iChild necessitates new design strategies. In 
this tutorial, we will introduce new co-design methods that have been 
specifically adapted for mobility, distributed sociability, and 
ubiquitous information. Participants will leave the tutorial having been 
introduced to or updated on co-design techniques that can lead to the 
development of new, innovative technologies for children.

*Introduction to iPhone Development - Ben Bederson
*This is a programming course will teach how to develop applications 
(with a focus on user interface) for Apple iPhone. It will include some 
general mobile design principles, and will also briefly compare iPhone 
to mobile web development and Android development. However, this is 
primarily a programming course. It will jump start your understanding of 
Objective C, iPhone user interface libraries, Interface Builder, memory 
management and performance issues with the goal of making it easier for 
existing programmers to start developing for iPhone.

/*WORKSHOPS ($75):*/

*Government Applications of Social Media Networks and Communities - 
Derek Hansen, Marc Smith, Jenny Preece, Ben Shneiderman*
Federal, state, and local governments are discovering interesting and 
ambitious ways that social media can be used to increase civic 
participation in decision-making, healthcare/wellness, energy 
sustainability, education, disaster response, community safety, 
scientific research, etc. This workshop will invite attendees to present 
current projects, design strategies, evaluation methods, and analytic 
tools. Issues such as universal accessibility & usability, privacy 
protection, and reliability will be discussed.

*Computing and Information Ethics Education - Ken Fleischmann, Russ 
Robbins, Al Wallace*
Given the ethical challenges faced by computing and information 
professionals working in highly dynamic and multi-cultural environments, 
it is critical that educational programs in computer science and 
engineering and the interdisciplinary information field prepare students 
to face these challenges.

*Improving Human Computer Interfaces for Foreign Language Professionals 
- Sarah Wayland, John Kovarik*
This workshop will focus on how to improve human-computer interfaces for 
the software used by foreign language professionals working for any part 
of the U.S. Government. We hope to develop a set of working guidelines 
that will enable any U.S. Government agency to evaluate the human 
computer interfaces in the software used by employees who regularly work 
with foreign languages.

*Consumer Health Informatics - Bo Xie*
This workshop will examine the use of novel information and 
communication technologies (ICTs) in healthcare from the perspective of 
health consumers.

*Visual Analytic Tools for Managing Technological Innovations - Ping Wang*
In order to survive and thrive, organizations in every sector of today's 
economy must innovate with new technologies. However, wide and dynamic 
arrays of technological innovations pose a significant cognitive 
challenge to organizations and their internal and external stakeholders. 
In this workshop, we explore state-of-the-art tools to help 
organizational stakeholders monitor and understand the complex and 
dynamic terrains of technological innovations.
