UX UI

Introducing the User Experience (UX) & User Interface (UI) Hub in the UC 2015 Esri Showcase, your go-to destination for all things related to user experience, user interface/visual design, icon design, interaction design, information architecture, and usability research. Due to positive feedback we’ve received the User Experience (UX) & User Interface (UI) Summit has expanded this year to a 3 day event in the Esri Showcase. The UX & UI Summit now includes: 1. UX & UI Hub located in the Esri Showcase Tuesday through Thursday; 2. UX & UI Exchange on Wednesday at the Marriott; and 3. Interactive Research Lab.

At the User Experience (UX) & User Interface (UI) Hub, explore the latest in visual design, interaction, information architecture, and user experience. Discover how a “people first” approach can benefit mapping applications and location-enabled apps. 15-minute Lightning Talk presentations, peer reviews and hands-on workshops will be offered at various times throughout the week for all levels and disciplines.
