Going Virtual

Due to COVID 19 measures, -instead of not doing it- we redesigned the conference for the virtual context: UXistanbul 2021 will be %100 virtual and last three days.

Other than that, here some news:

Interview with Clive Grinyer from RCA!

Please welcome, new Keynote: Eva Deckers from Philips!

Announcing, new Keynote: Erico Fileno from Visa!

Strategy and Research

It sometimes gets tricky to strategize a service or a product, and even more difficult to align the research with the objectives, right? So how to move around variables like timing, focus, targets, team, or pandemic!

Thankfully, we have people on board to share their visions and experiences on the first day. Like; Kate Towsey, Antti Kujala, Mileha Soneji, Laith Ulaby, and Saswati Saha Mitra.

Design and Innovation

Even though innovation and design are kind of built-in features for humankind, we still may have issues while implementing those skills. How to benefit new technologies, find better approaches, understand metrics, create a culture…

Luckily, we have people ready for sharing who won’t let us feel alone on the second day. Like; Clive Grinyer, Rahul Lindberg Sen, Patrizia Bertini, Erico Fileno.

Workshops and Interactive Sessions

Yes, muscle force is essential. In multiple domains, in multiple ways.
How to employ tools, approaches, skills, people around the objectives?

Fortunately, we people here feeling ready to discuss and share the ways that they use.

Is the event fully virtual?

Yes, 100% virtual. So you can attend from anywhere in the world.

Will there be a translation facility?

Yes. Simultaneous translation between Turkish and English available on Keynote and Speaking sessions (but, not Workshops).

Which online tools are to be used?

There will be various of tools to be employed like Whova, Zoom, Miro, Mural, etc. So, it’s a good idea to make a compatibility check.

Can I attend with a mobile device?

For Keynote and Speaker sessions, definitely OK. But if you’re going to attend Workshops as well, a desktop or laptop Mac or PC is needed.

Will I be able to access sessions, after the event?

Mostly, yes. Keynote and Speaking sessions are to be recorded and will be available via Whova for 3 months. But bear in mind that a small number of speaker’s company policies may prevent that to happen. We will highlight such cases in event schedule.

Can I attend with my team?

You are “all” welcome.

I'm an undergraduate student and can't effort the ticket. What should I do?

Keep an eye on our Social Media accounts. There will be “some” opportunities for you. 😉
