I know this is a little off topic, but I thought the members of this
list would be interested in an upcoming conference called User
Interface 98. We've only got a few spaces left for this event, which
will be held October 5-7 in Cambridge, MA. We've asked the most
talented people in the field of user interface design to give eight
full-day seminars and short presentations on the state of the art in
software and web site design.
User Interface 98 is a 3-day conference for people who have hands-on
involvement in product development and web site design. You'll come
away with practical knowledge that you can begin using immediately in
your work. Topics include:
* Web Design: Beyond the Page Toward the Network Economy
* Conceptual Design
* Successful Strategies for Selling Usability
* Field Studies: The Personal Touch
* Designing with the Mind in Mind
* Designing for Day-One Performance
* Practical Usability Methods in Web Site Design
* Usage-Centered Web Design: Model-Driven Techniques for the Web
We've lined up some world-renowned experts as speakers including
Jakob Nielsen, Gloria Gery, Kathy Potosnak, Larry Constantine, Lucy
Lockwood, Sarah Bloomer, Kate Gomoll, Eric Bond, Tom Hewett, Tom
Brinck, Darren Gergle, Scott Wood, and Bruce Tognazzini.
