DUX2003 will gather together designers of all kinds to truly
understand not only what makes for a quality user experience,
but also what factors contribute to the creation of a success or a
failure. DUX2003 will look at all facets of the product/service
development lifecycle and at other facets of a business and
business decisions that affect the user experience.
The two submission categories are Studies (maximum 15
pages) and Sketches (maximum 4 pages). All submissions will
be peer reviewed and the authors of those that are accepted will
be invited to present their submission at the event in San
Francisco. There is a lot of interesting work in the UK from which
others could learn -- please consider making a submission. The
deadline is 1 February. All further information at:
