WUD2017: World Usability Day | Guimarães Hotel | November 10 2017



For the third consecutive year, the GCC organizes an event that celebrates the importance that usability and human factors have in technological research and development.

On November 10, we invite you to participate in WUD 2017 – World Usability Day to be held at Hotel de Guimarães, near the beautiful historic center of Guimarães.

Our guests will present high-quality works ranging from user-centered design to auditory mode, to the challenges of monitoring in the autonomous control rooms of nuclear power plants. Particular emphasis will be placed on the challenges that researchers and automotive companies currently face in topics such as HMI in autonomous driving and new interfaces.
