Completely ripped off and copied from @wnathanlee's question, but I thought it was such a good question I wanted to do a UK version...

I know there are some great conferences/sessions/symposiums/seminars out there on the subject of User Interface Design and Web Usability. If I had to pick one to go to within the next year, which one should it be? And why?

A few disclaimers:

  • I would be restricted to a conference inside the United Kingdom
  • Recommendations based on experience of actually attending are preferred
  • One conference per answer, please

    Please make this question community wiki.

    @Charles this is not a UI related question. It is a question directed at the UI community. and btw "because that's how Stack Overflow does things" is a valid response IMO

    @Charles The practice of making "list" questions CW is well established on UI at this point. ui.stackexchange.com/search?q=wiki%3A1 You make a good point though. It should be added to the FAQ. Aug 31, 2010 at 20:03

    None of this discussion belongs on this question. The original issue with CW should have been asked on Meta along with the discussion regarding UI/UX/User Interface semantics. If you feel that you can contribute the community, you should follow the correct procedure. Being argumentative rarely achieves anything. Aug 31, 2010 at 22:12

    Blimey - I wasn't expecting that!

Haven't been to it in the UK specifically, but Usability Week is always a good conference, and it is in Edinburgh in late October.


I've thoroughly enjoyed the two UXCampLondons I attended in 2009/2010.

You can look at the presentations from the 2010 event (hover over the picture for links to the slides).

Had a fantastic time, met a bunch of really nice people, put real faces to some folk I'd only talked to online, and learned a lot. Recommended.


It's not specifically a UI/UX conference but the DIBI Conference (Design It, Build It) certainly has elements of User Focused designed in all of its talks. I went to the one last year and found it really inspiring.
