USID2007 : Living in Digital World

Technology has become the driving force of change in the modern world. While hardware and software matured at a very fast pace, equal adoption of these technologies however continued to exclude individuals and communities from harnessing the true bene.ts. The power of design to link technology to the latent needs of users had not been fully exploited. The result is, failure to connect people with solutions that make a positive impact on their lives. What design techniques and methodologies should be employed that contributes to build an Information Society where maximum number of people can use technology with minimum e.ort?


  • Make a content rich engagement that touches the core issues of HCI & UCD discipline.
  • Offer an opportunity for HCI/UCD community in India to contribute through papers and presentation.
  • Create an appropriate environment for learning and knowledge sharing among the UCD professionals and practitioners.
  • Provide a platform to Design and Engineering Students to showcase their Design proficiency for designing products/services which effect human life and society.
  • Move beyond the city boundary and make it a National/International level to address domain related issues. Based on this year's response, we plan to conduct this in other metros in India in future.

The above objectives would be executed through following activities:

  • Conference and Paper presentation
  • Workshops and Tutorials
  • Panel discussion on some fundamental issues related to UCD and HCI
  • UI Design Competition for Design & Engineering students
  • Photo Exhibition on the event theme
  • Quiz/contest sessions on UCD/HCI during the event
