UIG summit now in June!

UIG summit now in June!

Due to the current situation arising from Covid-19 the UIG summit will be postponed to summer. The new date will be Thursday 25 June at the University of Mannheim.

This year´s topic is "UX and beyond: How to master a human–centred digitalisation". Usability and user experience (UUX) are key competition factors in times of digitalisation. It is increasingly becoming more important to see users not only as clients or employees but also as humans with emotions, needs and attitudes, who need to be in the centre of interest. Involving people consequently in design and development could lead to usable, experience-orientated and fair results.

The 2020 summit will – as in recent years – introduce to new trends and developments in usability and user experience. Moreover, three main sub-topics will be discussed:

• “Human–centred design”: How can digital products and services be designed with a focus on users and what consequences arise for UX-designers?

• “Future of work”: How do we would like to live and work in future and which UUX-consequences are the results?

• “Fair digitalisation”: Which design trade-offs arise from the consequent implementation of a human–centred perspective in the field of UUX?

Another reminder following in May/June. More info already here.
