Submission Deadline: May 31, 2007

Designing the user experience of future peripatetic users: new HCI design challenges in Space

Travelling to the depths of Space is no longer a privilege of astronauts and scientists. Space Agencies are starting to allow those who have the means to afford it, provided that they fulfil a minimum set of physiological requirements to join the ventures into outer space.

The (design) process

"What if there were no stop signs... and a major corporation was charged
with inventing one?"

Fun stuff. Reminds me a bit of the "Microsoft designs the iPod packaging"

Re: What makes a good prototyping tool?

To me a good prototyping tool consist of following:
1. Does not geneate production quality code ( really ).
2. Provide out of the box basic UI components for several target platforms and devices.
3. Allow me to create custom UI components easily and quickly (hopefully without programming).
4. Also has basic drawing tool features.

Resource Planning in UX Roles?

HI Everyone,

My team and I are trying to figure out how many resources we need for a year. Forecasting our time has proven difficult, because internally to our organization our time is not tracked hourly, but is known as Business As Usual, which usually denotes coming off of a bottom line SOMEWHERE, but it's not specific to a specific project per se.

There in lies the problem.

After reading the thread on higher education, I went to the HFES.org
website to find a local University and inquire about their Human Factors

I thought you might be interested in the response I received from the

I think it is a great idea to pursue an advanced HF degree. Our program
was a very good one and would have been a good fit for you. But because
of the state budget cuts, FIU has decided to terminate our entire
department. So the program will not exist after next year.

What is the standard to use: Security Code, CVV, CVV2, CVC etc.

I'd like to hear others thoughts on what the "Standard" labeling is for having users submit the number on the back of their credit cards. I have seen some sites show an image of the back of a card but I'm more wondering about the verbiage. Do you feel there is a standard out there now for what to use or what others are leaning towards as s standard.

"Security Code", "CVV", "CVV2", "CVC"?

Online brochure vs. PDF download

Does anyone have any recommendations/ preferences with regard to online
We have the option of providing a downloadable pdf that users can view/print
out for reading later, and/or going with a zmags.com solution that takes the
print brochure(s) and displays it rather sleekly in it's own window (Ikea
applies this solution). There is a link to download the brochure from the
zmag approach, but I don't think it's immediately evident to the user. Are
there any stats/suggestions?
