      Sub: Register for the UMO2007::the National Conference on Designing for User Experience at Hyderabad, India


      Hi  Friend,

      I am writing to you on behalf of UMO (
      www.usabilitymatters.org), Hyderabad, India. UMO is a non-profit organization working towards design awareness and exchange of design sensibilities through interaction between designers, IT industry and design sensitive consumers. It is a forum dedicated to discussing, improving and promoting the work of the Usability, HCI and Interaction design community in India.

      On November 30, 2007; UMO and allied organizations in India will join communities across the world to mark the celebrations for World Usability Day 2007 (
      www.umo.in/umo2007) in Hyderabad, India. World Usability Day is a world wide self-organized event with the goal to promote the fields of Usability Engineering and User-Centered Design. The event is designed to raise awareness about the importance of ' Good Design for Better Living'. Eminent people from the academia, industry, business and governance will be sharing their views and insights on this day.

      Since UMO's World Usability Day 2007 is first of its kind and scale in India and having participation from international speakers, we are confident that you would be interested to support us in organizing this event and making it our 3rd successful event in a row in three years.
