Making Hard Choices - UXPA 2014

Just how do we select which 25% of our amazing submissions to include in the program for the annual conference? Deliberately and with great care. When so many submissions meet our strict quality standards, we must evaluate each one carefully to produce an exciting program that includes a broad mixture of relevant topics that are both current and meaningful to attendees. 

Susan Farrell and Jakob Nielsen publish free User Experience Careers report

On March 11, Susan Farrell announced the publication of a report about User Experience Careers, based on a survey of people working in interaction design, user experience research, and information architecture.  According to Susan, they hope that the report "will be useful to students, academic advisors, or people interviewing for UX Positions".  The report answers the question "What is user experience, why are these professions worth considering, and how should I prepare to enter the field?"

UXPA is proud to share a link to the report.  You can access it here:

President’s Corner (Feb, 2014): Beyond UXPA: Connect with the wider UX world

It goes without saying that we at UXPA want to engage with you.  Both UXPA International and our UXPA chapters have a lot to offer.  But don’t stop there.  If you’re already involved with UXPA, don’t limit yourself to UXPA events or to a single affiliation.

UXPA2014 is 21-24 July, 2014. Be part of it.

The User Experience Professionals Association is thrilled to announce the dates and venue for its 23rd Annual International Conference! The conference will be held 21-24 July, 2014, at the Park Plaza Hotel(Westminster Bridge) in London, UK. We are excited to have secured a world-class hotel in an amazing location, just a short walk from the London Eye, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and the sights and sounds that fill London's Southbank in the summer.

User Experience magazine to be online-only from 2015

User Experience magazine has been in print since 2002. In 2013, the editorial team did a fantastic job of putting it online.  This year, we decided to unlock the content so that the site is open to all. From 2015, we will move to an entirely digital format and the magazine will no longer appear in print.
