The Special Interest Group (SIG) on Universal Usability and Interaction Design (UUID) involves professionals, who work in the research and practice of usability, universal design, interaction design, user interface (UI), user experience (UX), and interface design.
We are brought together by a shared understanding that designing useful, usable, highly pleasurable and stimulating technology, services, and artefacts is an interdisciplinary process that when conducted properly it has the power to transform people’s lives. This interdisciplinary group will be composed of content designers, artists, interface designers, computer scientists, software engineers, psychologists, interaction designers, graphic designers, architects, sociologists, and anthropologists, just to name some of the domains whose special expertise come to bear in this area.
UUID SIG is located at Faculty of Creative Multimedia, Multimedia University, Malaysia. We also have a USER (User Experience and USER Research) Lab and a rapid prototyping facility for UUID members and researchers to share and work collaboratively.
