Connecting Communities: UPA 2004 Conference

Melanie Datz

UPA conference committee

Communities are changing in ways unimagined a generation ago. While technology undercuts and fragments traditional communities in many ways, it also opens broad new possibilities. UPA 2004 will explore the ways that communities affect usability and users, as well as the ways that technology affects communities.

Come network in UPA’s community! The Conference Committee is now accepting submissions for UPA’s 13th annual conference. We’re looking for tutorials, workshops, panels and presentations, peer reviewed papers, advanced topic seminars, posters and idea markets. We’re also looking for reviewers and on-site volunteers. Check out the UPA conferences & events page for complete details.

Not interested in presenting? It’s never too early to make your plans to attend UPA 2004. The Marriott City Center is located in the heart of downtown, and, while room rates are not yet available, UPA expects them to be very reasonable.

What’s there to do in Minneapolis?

Attend a taping of the Prairie Home Companion, or go to a Minnesota Twins game. Visit one of the city’s many parks, or go boating on the Chain of Lakes.

For more information on things to do in Minneapolis, visit the Convention and Visitors Bureau webpage. Registration will be available in mid February 2004.
