DUX 2007

DUX (Designing for User eXperiences) 2007 :: Chicago
November 5 - 7, 2007

Theme: Social media and networks are producing a new set of expectations regarding people's ability to contribute, create, personalize, and share information.

These new expectations are changing the roles, methods and responsibilities of Designers and Researchers. The effects are being realized through:
  • Ease of access to new types of information
  • Explosion and redefining of online communities
  • Emergence of new tools and capabilities
  • Significant shifts to the worlds of product development, advertising, marketing, and customer service
DUX2007 will surface issues and strive to define the role of designers in this time of shifting spaces.
