Munich 2010 Conference Drawing Numbers and Diversity
By, Laura Faulkner, UPA International Conference Co-Chair, 2009-2011
Munich 2010, May 24-28, is shaping up to be one of the most dynamic conferences in UPA history. Early registration response puts it on track with the largest UPA-International conferences ever; and the theme, “Embracing Cultural Diversity – User Experience Design for the World,” well reflects the most global team and participant lists ever assembled.
Unique offerings and characteristics in the works for this conference include:
If you are travelling internationally for the first time, now is a good time to book your airfare, as low rates are still available.
Arriving early or staying late? Double your professional development, and attend UXcamp Europe (http://www.uxcampeurope.org/), on the weekend immediately following the UPA conference, May 29-30. UXcamp Europe is “extending its borders” to conduct an international event focused on information architecture, interaction design, usability engineering, visual design, prototype engineering, and UI development. Begin networking with like-minded UPA-UXcamp community members on our own, propriety network, http://upa2010.mixxt.com. Whether you would like to see who will be there, schedule meetings, find someone to share a room in Munich or sue the network to start discussions around the topic of your presentation, this is the place.
Enjoy sites of Europe for a time you’ll never forget. Take a bus tour to the mythical Neuschwanstein Castle in the Alps. Spend some days in friendly, storybook-lovely Switzerland. Hop a train for day hike in the countryside; or rest in a biergarten restaurant and enjoy friendship in a whole new way. Add the Italy, Czech Republic, France, Poland, even Liechtenstein, to your lifetime list of places visited.
