DUXU: 12th International Conference on Design, User Experience and Usability

User experience (UX) refers to a person’s thinking, feeling, and behavior in using interactive systems. UX design becomes fundamentally important in new and emerging mobile, ubiquitous, and omnipresent computer-based contexts. The scope of design, user experience, and usability (DUXU) extends to all aspects of the user’s interaction with a product/service, how it is perceived, learned, and used, and addresses design knowledge, methods, and practices, with a focus on deeply human-centered processes. Usability, usefulness, and appeal are fundamental requirements for effective user experience design.

The conference solicits papers reporting results, covering a broad range of research and development activities on a variety of related topics, from professionals, academics, and researchers. Professionals include designers, software engineers, scientists, marketers, business leaders, and practitioners in such fields as AI, architecture, financial/wealth management, game design, graphic design, finance, healthcare, industrial design, mobile, psychology, travel, and vehicles.
