Spring seminar: Dark UX – dark patterns, manipulation and ill-intention in interaction design practice

22 toukokuun, 2024 - 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+0

This SIGCHI Finland spring seminar focuses on examining Dark UX design in interaction design practice and human-computer interaction scholarship. We will take a closer look at how designers intentionally and perhaps unintentionally design products and services that emphasise commercial benefit over user wellbeing. Invited speakers represent practitioners and scholars who are specialised in user experience, usability and user psychology.

The event is held online and it is free and open for anyone interested in the topics. Please note that the time of the event is in Finnish time (UTC +3).

Please register via this form at the latest on Monday 20.5.2024.
