Internet User Experience 2006 (IUE2006)
February 20-23, 2006 in Ann Arbor MI

By Dave Mitropoulos-Rundus

Dave Mitropoulos-Rundus is the current president of the Michigan Usability Professionals' Association.

The Michigan Chapter of the UPA www.miupa.org, WCC's Internet Professional Program, UXnet, and a growing list of others are co-sponsoring the second Internet User Experience event - IUE2006. This year's program includes four days (and some evenings) of presentations, demonstrations, and training on web site user experience design. Attendees will be exposed to before/after improvements to Comerica.com, IBM.com, and consumer retail web sites along with the methods that were used to achieve them.

The week kicks off on Monday with a full-day tutorial on the history of technology. The main event day (Tuesday) kicks off with a presentation on the history and progression of consumer retail on the internet, and this is followed by a day of case studies, methods, current design examples, and a networking reception. The rest of the week offers tutorials and training on designing the user experience and on usability testing.

Company web site and marketing managers, web developers, web usability professionals, information architects, and professional communicators who are interested in learning more about improving users' web experiences will benefit from attending this conference.

Deep discounts are offered to UPA, ASIS&T, CHI, GLIMA, HFES, and STC members.
