Full-day tutorial at NordiCHI 2012 in Copenhagen
On Sunday October 14th, I will together with my Ericsson colleagues Didier Chincholle and Johanna Hasslöf, and former colleague Caroline Hägglund (now at MTO Safety), offer a full-day tutorial at NordiCHI 2012. The conference, this year hosted by the IT University of Copenhagen, is the main Nordic forum for human-computer interaction research. And the event is a meeting place for people concerned with people in a world full of computer technologies.
The tutorial is titled Designing Experiences with the User in Mind. During the day, we will talk about how delivering a great user experience in the simplest possible way often is a complex task. We will stress the importance of understanding and translating user needs, expectations, technical opportunities, and constraints into an adequate design. Something that requires developing solutions using user-centered methods where design, implementation and evaluations are performed in an iterative fashion. The aim of the tutorial is to provide the participants with a clearer definition of user experience, but also processes, frameworks, tools and ways of working. The day will of course not only be filled with lectures, there will also be plenty of room for demos, videos, hands-on exercises and group discussions.
