[PLUG] CanUX, the Canadian User Experience Workshop - early reg. deadline Sept. 28
19 Sep 2007 - 4:29pm
If you can't wait until Interaction 08 in Savannah, we've got a treat coming
up in the Canadian Rockies. The early registration deadline for CanUX, the
annual Canadian User Experience Workshop, is approaching on Sept 28th. The
event itself starts Sunday November 25 and wraps on Tuesday the 27th in
Banff, Alberta, Canada.
CanUX brings together industry leaders, hands-on activities, and working
design and technology professionals, but it's not your typical conference.
It's small (limited to 70 participants), it's in a beautiful retreat-like
setting at the world-renowned Banff Centre, and the program is designed to
encourage creativity, exploration and group participation alongside hands-on
I'm delighted to announce that David Armano has confirmed as our closing
keynote, joining Lou Rosenfeld as our opening keynote and other provoking
and informative sessions from:
* Brad Nemer, Motorola
* Kes and Sue Sampanthar, Metamemes
* Derek Featherstone, FurtherAhead
* Gene Smith, nForm
* The Banff Leadership Arts Ensemble will also share their extraordinary
blend of leadership and creativity development (their sessions have been a
highlight of previous years).
The TechSmith Morae team will also be joining us - you can see early
prototypes of upcoming features and even participate in usability testing.
We'll also have time for a Design Slam and Show and Tell session (so gear up
to bring your own deliverables to show off).
Topics this year include the strategic value of user experience, innovation
beyond brainstorming, creativity, teamwork and leadership, accessible user
experience design, tagging, rapid facilitation, and reframing situations to
make true innovation possible.
Early registration has been extended through September 28. The all-inclusive
registration includes two nights of accommodation, meals, and the conference
fee for only $699+GST for a single, $599+GST for double accommodation. After
September 28, costs are $899 and $799, so register soon to secure your spot.
Pricing is in Canadian funds.
