Design Challenge

World Usability Day 2021 Design Challenge

World Usability Day is pleased to announce the sponsorship by and collaboration with the HCI International (HCII) conference for the annual Design Challenge.  This collaboration brings together two organizations who have similar and supporting goals.  HCII provides an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of up-to-date scientific information on theoretical, generic and applied areas. World Usability Day aims to raise standards so that technology works to harness human potential. This work is accomplished by building a community of common practice and supporting that through events occurring around the world that bring together different communities to work together to make our world easy for all.

The Gold, Silver and Bronze recipients of the World Usability Day Design Challenge Awards are cordially invited, with complimentary registration, to present their innovative, impactful design at the HCI International Conferences. The announcement of the winners for the upcoming competition will be on the World Usability Day, 11 November 2021 and the awards will be conferred during the HCII 2022 conference opening ceremony (which will run as a virtual event). They will be also invited to present their work in a special session during the conference.
