The Puget Sound Chapter of the Usability Professionals Association will be
hosting usability lab tours at the University of Washington's Laboratory for
Usability Testing and Evaluation (LUTE) on Thursday, January 29th, starting
at 5pm PST. (http://uwtc.washington.edu/navresearch/lute.)
LUTE was founded in 1990 as a self-supporting research facility within the
Department of Technical Communication at the University of Washington. LUTE
supports research projects led by UW faculty and students, and provides
training facilities for graduate and undergraduate students who are studying
usability engineering and user interface design.
LUTE is committed to:
- Building the scientific infrastructure for the field of usability
- Supporting usability and user-centered design education at the
University of Washington and in the Seattle-Metro area.
- Working with corporate partners to advance usability and user-centered
design and evaluation methods.
There are 20 initial slots available. Depending on the interest level, we
can accommodate a larger audience with an additional evening tour.
Attendance is limited. If you're interested in attending, or have any
questions, please contact Robert Skrobe by e-mailing rskrobe at gmail.com.
