A Workshop on Usability Engineering
Trainer: Professor Alan Dix.
Workshop date: 15 December 2010, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
The International Conference on User Science and Engineering (i-USEr) 2010 is proud to announce a workshop on Usability Engineering, a field that is concerned with making human-computer interfaces highly usable. Usability is a lot more than just the user interface that comes out with the product at the end of the development process. Usable systems do not emerge by accident; in fact, they are a product of a careful process called Usability Engineering. Thus, usability engineering is more important to IT and Computer professionals now than ever before.
The workshop will be conducted by Professor Alan Dix, a guru in HCI who has vast experience in usability engineering. i-USEr 2010 is honoured to have the opportunity to bring the guru to come down to Malaysia to give training on how usability engineering should be done and thus, will improve the product usability and user satisfaction.
Professor Alan Dix has many years of experience as an Academician, a HCI Scientist, and a Director in various institutions and organisations. He is currently a Professor at Computing Department, Lancaster University, UK and a Director of Lancaster University Business and Enterprise Limited and Lucidina Ltd. He also consults industries concerning novel signal processing for undersea cable detection and use of genetic algorithms for constraint satisfaction in submarine design. He has won international patents for his work in Method And Apparatus For Signal Presentation and Improved Software Interface Agent. He has also been externally recognised and affiliated due to his significant contributions to computing technologies, particularly in the area of Human-Computer Interaction.
This workshop is targeted at everyone who is doing, involved, or at least has interest in research and development in the area of usability engineering, HCI, user interface design, interaction design, user experience, and research methodologies.
So, come and join this great chance to meet the GURU of HCI, and take the opportunity to learn from the best. This workshop will be the best learning ground for everyone and open for new ideas and possibilities for research and development of usable product design.
