At November 8th, the Domain of Applied Research of Perception, Interaction and Usability at our member institute CCG – Centro de Computação Gráfica, continues to bring together usability professionals, academics and the curious to simply gather and talk about products and services having the human user as central focus. This year, we will be talking about “Designing for Good or Evil?” with professionals from several application areas.
Ever since 2005, organizers create a single day of events occurring around the world that brings together communities of professional, industrial, educational, citizen, and government groups for our common objective: to ensure that the services and products important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.
It is about celebration and education – celebrating the strides we have made in creating usable products and educating the masses about how usability impacts our daily lives. It is about making our world work better.
It is about reaching out to the common citizen and spreading the message: We don’t have to put up with products and services that don’t work well and that human error is a misnomer.
