*India’s 4th International conference on UX & Design
Designing Customer Experience for Emerging Markets & Beyond...**


*Pre-Conference Event**
*Call for Papers for USID 2010**

Life, culture, and context of use for end users in the emerging markets are
different to users in markets such as Europe and America. Therefore it is
not necessary that the product which is successful in other parts of the
world will also be successful in the markets of emerging economies. It is
critical that professionals and organizations must research and understand
the culture, context and needs of these people before they design any
products, applications, or services for emerging markets.

The USID2010 pre-conference event organizing committee is inviting
designers, researchers, product development professionals and students from
all over the world to submit papers on ideas and research work on how
should be enabled, utilized, and then presented as solutions to reach the
masses of the emerging markets for overall socio-economic development in the
following areas -

1. Education & Literacy

2. Mobility, Society, and Culture

3. Digital Communication , Media, and Entertainment

4. Collaboration and Social Networking

5. Accessibility and Assistive technologies

6. Aged and differently-abled population

7. Medical and Healthcare

* *

The papers will be reviewed by a panel of expert professionals, both from
industry and academia, which is under formation. The papers will be selected
for presentation on the eve of the USID2010 conference and also for
publication in the USID2010 conference proceedings.**
