PROGRAMME for UXEM workshop in CHI'08, April 6th, 2008 in Florence, Italy

The aim of the workshop is to transfer knowledge from practitioners to academics about challenges with putting UX evaluation into practice, and from academics to practitioners to inform and inspire practical UX work with research findings of UX evaluation methods. Participants will gain an overview of the current state of practical approaches, tools, and methods for UX evaluation, as well as insights into the importance of UX evaluation in product development.

The main outcomes of the workshop are a model of different UX evaluation methods across product development process and a list of UX evaluation challenges in product development.
