We are sad to announce that there will be no UX Challenge at Svalbard
in October 2009.
It seems like the financial crisis has hit our target group harder
than we hoped for. Indeed we have received a lot of feedback on the
project, where people tell us that they love the idea, but they have

At Svalbard we need 200 participants in order to break even, and we
don't seem to be able to recruit that many this year.
On May 30th, the Dallas chapters of IxDA, UPA, and Refresh are hosting
a one-day conference that brings in experts from social media, UX
design, development, and strategy. The conference is at the Art
Institute of Dallas. They have a great set of speakers already lined
up and it is only $50.
- There's a conference fee of $2,000 per person
- The hotel is not included — it's $450 per person for four nights
- Contrary to what is implied on another
flights from Oslo to Svalbard are not included either
In short, assuming $1,000 for airfare to Oslo (from the USA
We are 25% sold out for the conference and 25%-40% sold out for most
workshops. Sign up now. Workshops will go up in price on Jan 1 if there
is still space available.
The conference team is really excited about the planning. We are going
to have several new ways for people to contribute at the conference
besides the scheduled talks. Stay tuned we will be announcing these
