> Hi Everyone,
> The inaugural event for CHISIG held on the 7th of June was a success!
> with an interesting talk by Associate Professor Toni Robertson and
> Professor Ross Gibson from UTS on their 'Bystander Field' project, and
> a great turnout of people. Many people at the event were interested in
> the demonstration of the Bystander Field project in Lilyfield sometime
> later this year, so details of this demonstration will be forwarded to
> this mailing list when available.
> Thank you for everyone that was able to come, it was great to be able
> to catch up with and meet other friends in the industry and a big
> thank you to Toni Robertson for booking the UTS boardroom for us.
> The July NSW CHISIG event is not to be missed with Ash Donaldson from
> Different providing us with information and insight on:
> 'Standards, Guidelines and Best Practices Related to Human-Centred
> For the last 15 years, a large array of standards, guidelines and best
> practices have been developed to support human-centred design and the
> development of both software and hardware interfaces. Unfortunately,
> here in Australia, most of these standards remain unheard of.
> Ash Donaldson will introduce a number of standards related to
> human-centred design processes, practices, and interfaces, and explain
> their potential practical applications. He will also explore the myth
> of 'the accessibility standards', and provide pragmatic guidance in
> this area.
> Ash Donaldson is based in Sydney, working as a Senior Experience
> Architect for the Australian interactive agency, Different. He has
> been working in the realms of New Media and Human Factors for ten
> years and has been an active participant of many HCI related industry
> groups. Ash currently serves as an Australian representative for ISO,
> working on the Usability sub-group of the Software Quality and
> Requirements Engineering (SQuaRE), ISO/IEC 25000 series of
> International Standards.
