The IWIPS conference (2003, 17-19

The IWIPS conference (2003, 17-19 of July in Berlin) this year looks not so interesting: the same talks that have been given there (Dray Associates, Aaron Marcus) for years – the same preoccupation with Hofstede. But this one may be worth the trip: “Guidelines have become an established aid to the development of usable user interfaces. In this paper we examine the validity of guidelines across cultures, suggesting that they are specific to the culture in which they were developed. We go on to suggest that the ability of Design Patterns to encapsulate context, and give examples of solutions that have proven to be successful in that context, may be a more effective aid to the design of culturally localised software.”
