UPA 2007: Patterns: Blueprints for Usability
June 11-15, 2007, Austin, Texas US

By Carol J. Smith and Alain Robillard-Bastien

Carol J. Smith is a Senior Usability Specialist at K12 in Washington, D.C., U.S.A. and the Co-Chair of UPA 2007. Alain Robillard-Bastien is the Usability Laboratory Principle at Cesart, a Bell Canada Company, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and the Co-Chair of UPA 2007.

UPA 2007 submissions will be accepted starting on August 25th! Please be sure to submit your Tutorials, Workshops, Panels, Presentations and Experienced Practitioner Topics before the September 25th deadline.

We are planning to have an all-day Experienced Practitioner program which you can find more about in this month's Voice. We look forward to having more of you participate in this evolving program.

Your annual conference will be held at the Hilton Austin, located in downtown Austin. It is convenient to many attractions such as the Capital Building, Bob Bullock Texas Historical Museum and the LBJ Presidential Library. Each room has a work desk with two phones (each with 2 lines), voicemail, and a data port offering wireless high-speed Internet service. This hotel has a business center, exercise facilities, a swimming pool, and a full-service spa. For a virtual
tour, go to the Hilton website.

Look for information on Keynote, Closing, and Invited Speakers in the next issue. For all the up-to-date news on UPA 2007, check out the UPA 2007 Conference page.
