Celebrating the diversity of roles that contribute to the creation of
user-friendly products, UPA 2008 will offer interactive presentations,
workshops, and exhibits featuring the latest research and methodologies
from User Experience professionals around the world. 

Of special note this year are three exciting tracks: The new Managing User
Experience track is focused on User Experience (UX) leadership and current
trends in UX management. The Experienced Practitioners Track is another
relatively new and popular addition to the conference. Introduced at the
2006 conference, the program is targeted at seasoned professionals, sold
out in its first two years, and is expected to be in high demand again in
2008. Also, a one-time only track in e-Government usability is being
offered in 2008.
