Organized by ACM SIGCHI, ACM SIGGRAPH, and AIGA Experience Design
The Palace Hotel, San Francisco, CA
5-7 June, 2003

Join an extraordinary and multidisciplinary group of top user experience
designers for a weekend of insightful and inspiring discussion, reflection
and debate!
DUX2003 is an exciting new conference-- the first one to look at the user
experience of digital interactions from the key related fields of
human-computer interaction, business and design. The bringing together of
these communities and perspectives is being made possible by the first
joint venture between ACM/SIGCHI, SIGGRAPH and the AIGA Experience Design

This conference will look at all facets of the product/service development
lifecycle and at other organizational touch points that affect users'
experiences. The results of the conference will contribute to the growing
body of knowledge in the AIGA Experience Design Case Study Archive and the
ACM Digital Library.
The conference program will feature prominent designers, business
analysts, researchers, and educators via presentations and discussions of
design cases, design practice, design research, invited plenary speakers
and panelists.

Bill Buxton: As a designer, teacher and researcher concerned with human
aspects of technology, Bill's work focuses on the use of technology to
support design, filmmaking and music. He is an Associate Professor in the
Department of CS at the U. of Toronto and was Chief Scientist of
Alias|Wavefront, and its parent company SGI Inc.

Stephanie Yost Cameron: Stephanie is the general counsel and senior vice
president, business & legal affairs, at NeoPets Inc., the top-rated "Gen
Y" entertainment and media Internet website.  Ms. Cameron has lectured
extensively on entertainment and new media topics, and is on the Advisory
Board of the Children's Advertising Review Unit, a division of the Council
of Better Business Bureaus that acts as the children's advertising
industry's self-regulatory forum.

Mitch Kapor: As an entrepreneur, investor, social activist, and
philanthropist, Mitch has been at the forefront of the information
technology revolution for a generation.  He founded Lotus Development
Corp., the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Open Source
Applications Foundation. His 1990 Software Design Manifesto was one of the
first clear articulations of the idea that making useful, usable,
delightful software is a design problem, not an engineering problem.

Sara Little Turnbull:
A design advisor to corporate CEOs, national governments, and prestigious
universities, 85-year-old Sara Little Turnbull has been a powerful and
influential voice in strategic design development over the past six
decades.  Trained in design and cultural anthropology, she is now director
of the Process of Change, Innovation, and Design Laboratory of the
Stanford University Graduate School of Business.


The DUX 2003 program will feature accepted submissions of real-world
design practices, research, and cases from around the globe, creatively
combined in sessions moderated by leading design practitioners and
theorists. You will leave with insights and best practices you can teach
or apply on your next project.
