Usability and Internationalization Conference, affiliated with 11th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (HCII 2005) July 22-27, 2005 Las Vegas, USA

On behalf of the Usability and Internationalization Conference Program Committee, I would like to invite you to participate in the Usability and Internationalization Conference in association with HCII 2005, which will be held in Las Vegas, NV, USA, July 22-27, 2005. 

As industries expand into global markets, designers and developers are becoming more concerned with the needs of culturally diversified target users. This makes internationalization and localization one of the key concerns in their minds, and gives a new twist on how we approach usability globally. 

Join experts from around the world to understand the impact of internationalization on user interface design, share experiences in designing for global markets, and understand the future trends in internationalization. This technical conference will explore the opportunities created by the latest
advances in HCI and how to leverage them for global users, as well as potential pitfalls to be aware of, and problem areas that need further research. There will also be demonstrations of best practices for designing applications that can accommodate any language. Attendees benefit from the wide
range of basic to advanced topics and the opportunities for dialog and idea-exchange with experts in the field. The conference features tutorials, lectures, and panel discussions that provide coverage of standards, best practices, and recent advances in the internationalization and usability of user
interf! aces for software applications and the Internet. 

I would like to invite you to submit a paper, or organize a session that either includes 7 paper presentations or a panel session. Topics include, but are not limited to: 

- Cross-cultural design 
- Internationalization 
- Localization 
- International standards 
- Globalization process 
- Translation 
- Technical documentation 
- International formatting 
- Case studies 
- Languages 
- Culture studies 
- International usability evaluation 
- International ethnographic studies 

Please let me know by ASAP if you are interested in submitting a paper or organizing a session with the information requested below. 

If you would like to present a paper, please send me the author(s) affiliation(s), title of your paper and a brief abstract. 

If you would like to organize a session: 
1) session title that you will be chairing, 
2) name and affiliation of the session chair, 
3) a list of each of the 7 presenters including their names, affiliation, 
titles and brief abstracts of their papers. 

Thank you for your participation in making HCII2005 and affiliated conferences successful. 

Best regards,
