About Us

In last few years HCI has gain lot of importance in all software companies. In India too, almost all companies (product and service companies) have started their HCI departments. They may be called as UX Groups, Usability groups, HCI , etc. People from other fields of software like Documentation / Technical Writers, Developers & Product Managers have also shown interest in HCI. So sharing knowledge and learnings in respective projects help to better understand HCI. Students, researchers, ethnographers and conslutants are equally part of this initiatives.

Informal UX meets
A small group of HCI enthusists from Hyderabad started to meet regularly to share experiences in HCI under the name of Hyderabad UX meets . This group increased to almost 100+ people since mid 2005. The group decided to get affliated with internation bodies like UPA so that it gives an opportunity for Hyderabad Usability professionals to get international exposure. This group will continue to collaborate with other local and international groups which share similar interest. Currently we are jointly hosting WUD2006 with oher allied UPA orginizations
