The World Usability Day is an event occurring around the world that brings together UX professionals, IA experts, designers, makers, industrials, accademics, managers and government groups for the common objective:
To ensure that the services and products important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.
WUD is organised in more than 30 countries throughout the World to celebrate the strides we have made in creating usable products and to discuss about how usability impacts our daily lives. It is about making our world work better.
The theme for 2016 is Sustainable User Experience (UX) or Green UX.
Sustainability and UX design are innately intertwined since they are both about creating the best experience for people. Green processes and sustainable products take into account goals such as recycle, reuse and incremental improvement. It’s about taking existing products and services and developing ways to refine and redesign them to be more effective, efficient and reusable in ways that enhance a person’s life.
This year #WUDRome2016 had a public Call for Paper closed on September 15th. Therefore during the conference day, the program will host invited speakers as well as selected community members based on their Call for Paper submission.
The final program will be announced on October 15th.
This year WUDRome is teaming up with the Italian Summit of Information Architecture and the Global Sustainability Jam to promote the first Italian User Experience Design Week ever.
