1st European Usability Professionals Association Conference (EUPA)
London, 2-6 September 2002

The EUPA conference will focus on practical experience, and will
constitute separate tracks in a joint conference with HCI 2002.  The
conference is designed specifically to meet the needs of
practitioners to share experience, learn new skills, and hear about
case studies and the latest trends.  To propose a presentation you
don't have to submit a paper - just a summary of what you would like
to do in a session of 30, 60 or 90 minutes.  We also invite panels
and workshops.  Feel free to contact me or one of the organisers
below to discuss your ideas.

The first deadline is 16 January for half or full-day tutorials.  If
you already teach practical information related to usability, would
you like to submit this as a tutorial?  Or do you have a lot of
practical experience that you could present as a tutorial?  Payment
for the tutors will take the form of complementary conference
registrations and accommodation, or equivalent reimbursement.

Presentations should focus on a practitioner's ideas and experience.
Presentations may be 30, 60 or 90 minutes long and should make
audience participation a strong component.  A 2-3 page summary should
be submitted by 28 February 2002.  Contact Ian Curson:

Panels should feature three or four members presenting their ideas
and experiences.  Submissions that actively and creatively engage the
audience are particularly encouraged.  A 2-3 page summary should be
submitted by 28 February 2002.  Contact Marty Carroll:

Tutorials are formally prepared half-day or full-day sessions at
which instructors teach participants specific usability or design
skills. Tutorial submissions must be made by 16 January 2002.

Workshops will provide the opportunity for experienced practitioners
to develop new ideas about a topic of common interest and experience.
The entire workshop should be focused on the active exchange of ideas
among the participants.  Workshop submissions must be made by 1 May
2002.  Contact Kevin Keohane: [log in to unmask]

Reviewers are required for all categories of submission, and are
invited to sign up on the web site.
