      forUSE 2002 | First International Conference on Usage-Centered Design
      25-28 August 2002 | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

      A Conference on Usage-Centered, Task-Driven, and Performance-Centered Design
      for Software and Web Applications
      Conference Theme: Design that Works

      Conference Chairperson: Larry Constantine, Constantine & Lockwood, Ltd.
      Program Chairperson: James Noble, Victoria University of Wellington, New
      Industry Liaison: Helmut Windl, Siemens AG, Germany

      Usage-centered design is coming of age as a proven, scaleable, and flexible
      approach for designing world-class user interfaces. Interest in this and
      related systematic techniques for user interface design has been growing
      rapidly around the world.
      forUse 2002 will be the first conference of its kind devoted exclusively to
      usage-centered, task-driven, and performance-centered design for software
      and web-based applications. The conference will feature keynote and invited
      presentations by leading figures in usability and user interface design
      along with a full complement of tutorials and short presentations.

      In addition to proposals for regular presentations (1.5 hours), we are also
      seeking proposals for special sessions (also 1.5 hours), such as panels or
      demonstrations, as well as full-day tutorials (6 hours) on both basic and
      advanced topics related to the conference focus. Presenters will get free
      registration for the full conference, publication in the proceedings, and
      publicity on the conference Web site. In addition, each regular session will
      earn a stipend of $500, and each all-day tutorial will earn $1500.
      The emphasis throughout the conference will be on practical application and
      real-world experiences. We are particularly interested in reports by
      practicing designers and developers describing actual project experiences
      and lessons learned but will also consider research reports and conceptual
      papers that emphasize application in the real world.

      Presentations should address or be related to one or more of the core topics
      of the conference. Topics of interest include but are not limited to such
      things as:
      * usage-centered and task-oriented design
      * systematic and model-driven user interface design processes, methods, and
      * performance-support and performance-centered design
      * task models and task modeling
      * use cases, scenarios, task cases, and stories in user interface design
      * user roles, personas, user profiles, and user modeling
      * abstract prototypes and user interface content models
      * innovative visual and interaction designs supporting use and work
      * patterns in user interface design and usability
      * product usability, utility, and usefulness in real-world practice
      * user interface design, task efficiency, and user effectiveness
      * model-driven user interface design
      * usability and user interface design in agile and lightweight processes
      * usage-centered design and XP (extreme programming)
      * integrating usage-centered design with UML and the Unified Process
      * programming and software engineering of usage-centered designs
      * cost-justification and ROI in user interface design
      * making the business case for usability and user interface design
      * teaching user interface design
      * usability in embedded, wireless, and special applications
      * software and paper-based tools for usage-centered design

      Proposals (by email only, mailto:submissions@...) should include:
      (a) proposed title
      (b) type of session (regular, tutorial, panel, demonstration, etc.)
      (c) 300-500-word abstract
      (d) 100-200 author biographical sketch
      (e) full contact information for all presenter(s), including all email

      Multiple presenters and multiple proposals from the same presenter(s) are
      Preliminary decisions on program content will be made early in 2002; the
      precise conference planning schedule along with further details will be
      released in December.
