A conference that focuses on user experience--the annual Usability

Graphic Design/Sustainability

Hi all -

I'm new to this list, but not new to the field. I was interested in the sustainability thread but sadly couldn't keep up. I apologize if this already was discussed and I missed it. But I got this in my inbox from a former co-worker and thought it might be relevant to some of you.

CFP: HCI Remixed - reflective essays on influential work (IxD)

The HCI Remixed Project -- Call for Participation

We are inviting you to contribute to a unique project for the HCI
community: HCI Remixed! Our aim is to produce a collection of essays
in which researchers and practitioners reflect on a paper or other
piece of work by someone else, that is at least 10 years old, and
that has had a personal impact on their view of or approach to HCI.

We intend the essays to be brief (up to about 1800 words), personal
in tone, and reflective in nature.

HCI courses in NYC?


I want to recommend to a friend of mine to take some HCI courses that
focuses on the basic principles of interface design, guidelines, heuristics
etc. Not one that is about methods or usability testing, but one that helps
her familiarize herself with design guidelines.
