We invite you to Krakow on 9-10 June 2022. The conference will be held in a stationary mode – it is best to meet and discuss in Krakow!

The conference is addressed to representatives of institutes and centres offering courses, specialisations and subjects in the field of information architecture (AI), usability, information graphics and information design considering User Expierience (UX).

We would also like to invite practitioners to participate in the meeting: representatives of companies designing websites and information systems in the UX/HCI sector, employees of interactive agencies, as well as students, including members of scientific associations.
