UCD UK is no more, however this archive has been passed to the The Human Centered Design Society as they have the engagement to carry this fundamentally important conversation forward.
UCD UK Conferences http://ucduk.org/ was a not-for-profit organisation created to promote User Centred Design (UCD) as a community of practice. UCD UK Conferences is creating events that explore how User Centred Design is applied in a variety of disciplines and how they in turn benefit the quality and expertise of people in the UK and globally.
Future UCD Conferences;
If you are interested in being involved in running a conference on UCD or as its now called HCD please contact us. This was always a labour of love of the subject, not a money spinner so we would need around £30,000 in sponsorship to run it again.
We have a number of principals to the way we put our events together which we share in our about page that expose our thinking around the structure of UCD Conferences.
We intend on keeping conference fees modest, making our events an economical and interesting alternative to attending international conferences, purely academic conferences or purely UX conferences. This has only been possible because our speakers donate their time for free along with all the hard work and time our volunteers on the conference and event committees willingly give.
Additionally we currently have a team who has taken the responsibility to drive the UCD/HCD agenda forward http://human-centered-design.org/organization/
