On April 19th 2011, we held our annual open day. We were fortunate to have a wide range of speakers throughout the day who gave their time to share and communicate their experiences in the realms of usability, user experience, accessibility, creativity and more. We also showcased our interaction lab and described our approach and the technologies we use for undertaking our commercial and academic user research.
The event was a great success and we would like to thank all those involved who made it such a worthwhile and memorable day for all who attended.
As well as our lovely staff and researchers of City University’s Centre for HCID, we were also pleased to have speakers from the below organisations presenting at our event:
