The World Usability Day is an event occurring around the world that brings together UX professionals, IA experts, designers, makers, industrials, academics, 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 43 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.
Every year Usability Professionals ‘Association (UXPA) chooses an new theme, 2017 is going to be the year of Inclusion.
WUDRome 2017 is in its forth edition carrying on its mission of spreading best UX practices and User Centered Design principles to create products and services that could enhance our lives by being effective, efficient, satisfying and reliable, and by being usable by all people. WUDRome 2017 is a highly professional event and has been one of the most important networking events for IA, UX & UI professionals around Italy.
Durante la conferenza #WUDRome2017 si avvicenderanno talk, case study e pecha kucha, quest’ultimo è un racconto conciso con un preciso schema, quello del 20×20: 20 immagini/slide e 20 secondi di commento ciascuna, per un totale di 6 minuti e 40 secondi.
This year’s theme “Inclusion through User Experience” will be discussed through three different talk types: talks (45 min.), case study (20 min.) and pecha kucha (6 min. and 40 sec.). This last one comes from the Japanese word ペチャクチャ [petɕa ku͍̥tɕa], which means “chit-chat” and is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format keeps presentations concise and fast-paced.
The official conference language is Italian, but we also have some talks in English thanks to our international speakers.
