On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students in the Information Experience Lab (IE Lab), we invite you to our Usability conference. The 2013 conference marks the 10 year anniversary of the IE Lab and coordinates with World Usability Day. Our conference theme is “Collaborating for Better Designs of HealthCare and Educational Systems”.
Over the past 10 years, our projects have crossed many different disciplines and industries. By providing guidance, feedback, and designs to improve client tools, we have emerged as a resource for standard practice and research at the University of Missouri and other organizations in the state of Missouri. By combining user-centered and performance centered design and evaluation methods, the IE Lab is in a unique position to shape future designs of healthcare applications, technology based learning environments, and performance support tools.
Our conference will feature Dr. Catherine Plaisant, Associate Director of Research at the Human-Computer Interaction Lab at the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies. Along with Dr. Plaisant’s keynote presentation, there are several scheduled panels on usability research in the fields of health and education, novel technology and methods in usability evaluation, a poster session with case studies of usability evaluation projects conducted at the IE Lab, and interactive activities for participants in usability-related exercises using innovative technology.
The conference is free and open to the public, but we have limited registration. Reserve your seat to learn more about Information Behavior and Usability research.
