Symposium on Usability, Information Design, and Information Interaction 
to Communicate Complex Information

February 24-25, 2012

East Carolina University
Greenville NC

The future will see the design of information and communication 
technologies that serve ever more complex purposes and problems. For 
these technologies, creating user centered design is particularly 
challenging when users are engaged in sophisticated knowledge work and 
collaborations and do not want to become power users to conduct this 
work electronically. Goals of this workshop are to clarify what we 
already know about communicating complex information and clarify our 
understanding of what issues urgently need further research.

We hope to reach new insights about the current major research issues 
that need to be addressed and ways to transform research into practical 

We want this workshop to maximize the exchange of information and ideas 
among the participants. The workshop will feature a highly interactive 
format with each participant giving a 15-20 minute presentation followed 
by a 20-30 minute discussion. We wish to encourage high interactivity 
and in-depth discussion about each topic.

Keynote address will be by Carol Barnum, Southern Polytechnic State 

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
