Consumer behaviour facing Information Technologies has long been a key factor
for innovation. Now, in many countries, new methods for usability research as
well as facilities for observation and tests of IT products by users, are
available.
The LUTIN User Lab (RNRT PLatform and UMS CNRS) will be open to public in
September at the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie de la Villette, the main
french science park, in Paris.
The European Conference should help connect the different user Labs in Europe
and should offer an opportunity for exchanges about methodologies and
technologies in this field.

You have been considered as a potential speaker for your user lab experience.
You may address the following topics:
-scientific references in user behaviour observation based on various academic
fields: how to connect these knowledge fields? How to guarantee the knowledge
capitalization in the assessment process?
-methodologies and technologies development required for specific IT Products,
services and data: how to define the limitations ans specifications of each
method and technology? How to design an effective and feasible bunch of
protocols?
-Relationships with IT industrial process of development (products, services and
contents): how to give a better chance for user behaviour knowledge to be used
actually by the developers? How to combine academic requirements and time-to-
market constraints?

Since this first conference will be a one-day event, a selection of papers and
posters will be organized by the provisory French committee.
