Highlights talk at ISMB/ECCB Berlin in July


I’m really pleased to mention that my talk ‘Designing with the user in mind: how UCD can work for bioinformatics‘ has been selected for the Highlights Track at the ISMB/ECCB 2013 conference.  This conference is the 21st Annual International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology/ 12th European Conference on Computational Biology, and it takes place on July 19-23, at the Messe Berlin (ICC Berlin), Germany.

The highlights track is about presenting exciting, novel, and field-shaping work, which admittedly is a bit daunting, but it offers a great opportunity too.  My hope is that the talk, and subsequent conversations, will highlight:

  • why bioinformatics needs UX
  • practical tips on how to apply UCD to complex data services
  • general awareness of UCD, since the UX community is not traditionally represented at ISMB/ECCB

Hopefully, see you there!
