The event is an opportunity to expose people to Usability and User Centered design, showing its importance in daily life. This years Theme is transportation. This is something very close to Bangalore, and a theme on which debates take place.

At the event the speakers are the COO of BIAL (Discussing the importance of User Centered Design in aviation), the CEO of Reva Automobiles (Talking about the future of electric cars) and Mr.Bala (The urban planner who worked on the Ahmadabad BRTS). We also have a on the spot 1 hour Design Challenge, where there will be teams which will asked to come up with solutions to specific problems. A panel of judges will choose a winner who will be given a handsome prize and his solution showcased around city.

A 1 hour unconference is also happening, where an active member of Praja too will be a presenter.

Also, we have an exhibition. This will showcase ideas and solutions that citizens, active bodies, NGOs and other have come up with for the City. This could be as simple as a campaign to get people to walk, or an alternative bus routing idea for the city. We will design these into panels and put them up at the venue.

More information can be found on the UPA Bangalore site.
I look forward to your registration.
