ANN ARBOR (WWJ) — The Michigan Usability Professionals Association has issued a call for speakers at Ignite UX Michigan, an evening of short talks on usability, scheduled for Oct. 24.
Ignite UX Michigan is a single evening of 16 talks in the Ignite format: five minutes and 20 slides. This format means that the talks will have to be lively and to-the-point — a perfect opportunity to practice your skills if you are new to speaking or to gather your thoughts about a UX-related topic that’s been on your mind.
The event will be held at Conor O’Neill’s Irish Pub & Restaurant, 318 S. Main St. in Ann Arbor.
Topics can be anything that fit broadly into user experience, including topics related to information architecture, usability, user research, web analytics, UX strategy, and more. Although speakers are encouraged to have fun, talks should have an underlying serious or thought-provoking message.
To submit a talk, please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
• The title of your talk
• A 140 character description of what your talk is about
The deadline for talks is Thursday, Sept. 12. Talks will be selected by a panel of volunteers (and to volunteer, please contact email@example.com).
