*India’s 4th International conference on UX & Design
Designing Customer Experience for Emerging Markets & Beyond...**


*Pre-Conference Event**
*Call for Papers for USID 2010**

Life, culture, and context of use for end users in the emerging markets are
different to users in markets such as Europe and America. Therefore it is
not necessary that the product which is successful in other parts of the
world will also be successful in the markets of emerging economies.

Core77 equivalent for interaction design?

In the industrial design world, http://www.core77.com/ is the 800-lb gorilla of industry news, information and cool stuff. In interaction design, it's obviously the IxDA list, but its not quite the same since it's user-generated content, versus more of a news bureau approach.

The Perpetual Scrolling Web Pages

I've been noticing more and more Ajax powered pages where at the end
of the normal page end a call is made to fetch more content and is
added to the bottom of the page, in essence making the page longer on
the fly. A good example of this is on http://www.haystack.com
Twitter and Facebook do something similar but a button or link is
needed to expand the content.

I can a usability issue with clicking on a link and then having the
back button not return you to the same 'long' page you left from.
