Season of Usability 2006/2007 - Call for Student Application

Season of Usability 2006/2007 is a series of sponsored student projects
to encourage students of usability, user-interface design, and
interaction design to get involved with Freee/Libre/Open-Source Software
(FLOSS) projects.

FLOSS offers an excellent way to gain experience in the
interdisciplinary and collaborative development of user interface
solutions in international software projects. During a three-month
cooperation, you will closely work together with experienced
professionals and get insights in to their way of work.

Each Season of Usability project has challenging goals and is mentored
by an experienced usability specialist. The projects represent different
fields of application, such as media players, document viewers, VoIP,
printing, layout or blogging.

Browse the openings online:

Depending on your location, you will be invited to a meeting with the
development and usability team. Otherwise the collaboration will take
place via the established channels of OSS development - email, IRC,
VoIP, and etc.

Season of Usability projects are sponsored with $700USD. An involvement
of 15 hours per week is expected.

If you are a student of usability, user-interface design, and
interaction design or related subjects send us your application for one
of the project openings:

Contact: students at openusability org

Application Deadline: 2006 December, 15
