Michigan Usability Professionals' Association.
The Michigan Chapter of the UPA www.miupa.org,
WCC's Internet Professional Program, UXnet, and a growing list of others
are co-sponsoring the second Internet User Experience event - IUE2006.
This year's program includes four days (and some evenings) of presentations,
demonstrations, and training on web site user experience design. Attendees
will be exposed to before/after improvements to Comerica.com,
IBM.com, and consumer retail web sites along
with the methods that were used to achieve them.
The week kicks off on Monday with a full-day tutorial on the history
of technology. The main event day (Tuesday) kicks off with a presentation
on the history and progression of consumer retail on the internet, and
this is followed by a day of case studies, methods, current design examples,
and a networking reception. The rest of the week offers tutorials and
training on designing the user experience and on usability testing.
Company web site and marketing managers, web developers, web usability
professionals, information architects, and professional communicators
who are interested in learning more about improving users' web experiences
will benefit from attending this conference.
