Pre-Conference Event
Call for Papers for USID 2010 (last date for registration March 31st, 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.  It is critical that professionals and organizations must research and understand the culture, context and needs of these people before they design any products, applications, or services for emerging markets.

The USID2010 pre-conference event organizing committee is inviting designers, researchers, product development professionals and students  from all over the world to submit papers  on ideas and research work on how  technology should be enabled, utilized,  and then presented as solutions to reach the masses of the emerging markets for overall socio-economic development in the following areas -  

1.             Education & Literacy

2.             Mobility, Society,  and Culture

3.             Digital Communication , Media, and Entertainment

4.             Collaboration and Social Networking

5.             Accessibility and Assistive technologies

6.             Aged and differently- abled population

7.             Medical and  Healthcare


The papers will be reviewed by a panel of expert professionals, both from industry and academia, which is under formation. The papers will be selected for presentation on the eve of the USID2010 conference and also for publication in the USID2010 conference proceedings.



·               All submissions must be in English and must include a title and author information, including author affiliations.

·               Faxed submissions are not acceptable.

·               Late submissions will not be reviewed.

·               The written paper should include a short abstract, keywords, body, and references (for more details, please see the USID2009 Conference Publication Format).

·               Submissions must not contain proprietary or confidential material and should not cite proprietary or confidential publications.

·               All submissions must be in the camera-ready format (PDF). Due to tight publication schedules, revisions will not be possible. The submitted PDF version will be considered the final version of the paper.

·               We recommend that you register using an e-mail address for communication between the review panel and the individuals. Important information will be distributed via e-mail for individuals invited to attend the conference, which must be acted on in a timely fashion.
