Invitation for Paper and Session/Panel Submission

International Usability Evaluation and International Ethnographic Studies sessions Usability and Internationalization Conference – HCII 2005 July 22-27, 2005 Las Vegas, USA (

On behalf of Usability and Internationalization Conference Chair, we would like to invite you to participate in the International Usability Evaluation and International Ethnographic Studies sessions, Usability and Internationalization Conference in association with HCII 2005, which will be held in Las Vegas, NV, USA, July 22-27, 2005.

As industries expand into global markets, designers and developers are becoming more concerned with the needs of culturally diversified target users. This makes internationalization and localization one of the key concerns in their minds, and gives a new twist on how we approach usability globally.

Join experts from around the world to understand the impact of internationalization on user interface design, share experiences in designing for global markets, and understand the future trends in internationalization. This technical conference will explore the opportunities created by the latest advances in HCI and how to leverage them for global users, as well as potential pitfalls to be aware of, and problem areas that need further research. There will also be demonstrations of best practices for designing applications that can accommodate any language. Attendees benefit from the wide range of basic to advanced topics and the opportunities for dialog and idea-exchange with experts in the field. The conference features tutorials, lectures, and panel discussions that provide coverage of standards, best practices, and recent advances in the internationalization and usability of user interfaces for software applications and the Internet.

We would like to invite you to submit a paper and becoming a panel/session presenter with a topic related to:
