Announcing World Usability Day 2008 (Melbourne)
World Usability Day is fast approaching:
Next Thursday, 13th November 2008.
World Usability Day www.worldusabilityday.org <http://www.worldusabilityday.org/> was founded by the Usability Professionals' Association to ensure that products and services important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.
The focus for World Usability Day 2008 is TRANSPORTATION
To celebrate this event, you are invited to visit the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) in Clayton.
5.30 - 7.30 pm
Thursday 13th November 2008
* Is one of the world's leading injury prevention research centres
* Has a strong program of research in human factors and ergonomics
* Has been awarded for their major systematic contribution to advancing the science of ergonomics and its application in Australia
Some of you may remember visiting MUARC in early 2003, where we heard about their research into how best to provide feedback to speeding drivers (e.g. through visual signs or 'pushback' through the accelerator pedal) as well as an overview on the directions for 'intelligent vehicles'.
PLEASE RSVP BY TUESDAY 11TH NOVEMBER
This event is free - but we would ask you to register ASAP so that we can predict numbers & refreshments.
