About

 World Usability Day 2018

What is World Usability Day?

At November 8th, the Domain of Applied Research of Perception, Interaction and Usability , at the Centre of Computer Graphics, continues to bring together usability professionals, academics and the curious to simply gather and talk about products and services having the human user as central focus. This year, we will be talking about “Designing for Good or Evil?” with professionals from several application areas.

Ever since 2005, organizers create a single day of events occurring around the world that brings together communities of professional, industrial, educational, citizen, and government groups for our common objective: to ensure that the services and products important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.

It is about celebration and education – celebrating the strides we have made in creating usable products and educating the masses about how usability impacts our daily lives. It is about making our world work better.

It is about reaching out to the common citizen and spreading the message: We don’t have to put up with products and services that don’t work well and that human error is a misnomer.

  OPEN DAY PIU 2018

This year, on the following day (9th november) PIU will be hosting an OPEN DAY. Click here to register.

This event intends to (a) Publicize the Applied Research Domain PIU – Perception, Interaction and Usability to the academic and business community; (b) Present the most recent papers and demonstrate the group’s competences in applied technical-scientific work;

(c) Show how fundamental scientific research can be transposed to the applied domain allowing to understand and improve the Man-Machine relationship, resulting in the design of better products.

It is destined for companies, researchers and public agents.
Will you join us for a day of presentations, networking and demonstrations? We are waiting for you at CCG!
