UPA Event: LUTE Lab Tour
29 Jan 2009
University of Washington’s Laboratory for Usability Testing and Evaluation (LUTE)
The Puget Sound Chapter of the Usability Professionals Association will be hosting usability lab tours at the University of Washington’s Laboratory for Usability Testing and Evaluation (LUTE) on Thursday, January 29th, starting at 5pm PST. (http://uwtc.washington.edu/navresearch/lute.)
LUTE was founded in 1990 as a self-supporting research facility within the Department of Technical Communication at the University of Washington. LUTE supports research projects led by UW faculty and students, and provides training facilities for graduate and undergraduate students who are studying usability engineering and user interface design.
LUTE is committed to:
• Building the scientific infrastructure for the field of usability engineering.
• Supporting usability and user-centered design education at the University of Washington and in the Seattle-Metro area.
• Working with corporate partners to advance usability and user-centered design and evaluation methods.
There are 20 initial slots available. Depending on the interest level, we can accommodate a larger audience with an additional evening tour.
Attendance is limited. If you’re interested in attending, or have any questions, please contact Robert Skrobe by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
