UIE Showcase Seminar, 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

New Perspectives in User Experience Design

For 15 years, User Interface Engineering has researched and developed the most advanced, state-of-the-art usability strategies and techniques used today. Experience Design leader, Jared M. Spool, will share UIE's outlook on the state of the field today. You'll have the chance to hear Jared give informative and entertaining 90-minute presentations covering UIE's latest research in the world of User Experience, Branding, and Usability.

Because the research presented at this Showcase Seminar will be timely and based on UIE's summer research agenda, we will publish the detailed descriptions of the talks in August. Previous topics have included: Intuitive Design, Home Page Design, Social Web Applications, Tagging Systems, and Branding Best Practices.

Jared M. Spool, Founding Principal, User Interface Engineering

Jared M. Spool

Jared M. Spool is the founder of User Interface Engineering and a co-founder of Center Centre.

If you’ve ever seen Jared speak about user experience design, you know that he’s probably the most effective and knowledgeable communicator on the subject today. He’s been working in the field of usability and experience design since 1978, before the term “usability” was ever associated with computers.

He is also the conference chair and keynote speaker at the annual UI Conference and UX Immersion Conference, and manages to squeeze in a fair amount of writing time. He is author of the book Web Usability: A Designer’s Guide and co-author of Web Anatomy: Interaction Design Frameworks that Work. You can find his writing at and follow his adventures on the twitters at @jmspool.
