The UPA 2002 Conference is Coming Up!


The UPA 2002 Advance Program Now Available
   By Laurie Kantner

The Advance Program is currently online.

In response to the nearly 500 responses we received from our recent member survey, we've included even more tutorials than in past years. This year's 20+ tutorial topics will cover a wide range of design and usability evaluation skills and techniques. See the Tutorial Index for a list of the specific topics.

We are also organizing 40+ presentation sessions that will provide how-to discussions with practical tips and techniques; conceptual or philosophical overviews about new ideas and approaches; and business case studies that share real design and usability experiences and challenges. See the Presentation Index for more details.

This year's conference hotel is the Hyatt Regency Grand Hyatt in Orlando, Florida http://grandcypress.hyatt.com/. The UPA conference hotel becomes an enclosed community of usability professionals from around the world who are sharing tips and tricks and just plain having a good time. The Hyatt is even providing us with a "commons" room for informal get-togethers.

We look forward to seeing you in Florida.
