KEYNOTE PRESENTATION
Why HTML5 Trumps Device OSS
Charles Jolley -Facebook
The last few years have seen a resurgence of the Device specific development with companies focused on the OS and API solutions of individual manufacturers. Some Pundits even predicted the death of the web. Now with the roll out of HTML5 the lingua franca of the web is going to out perform the APIs on devices to enable a common structure that had direct interfaces to both device and back end server resources. Charles Jolley and many of his cohorts left Apple to capitalize on this opportunity to make the experience not about the device but the experience. Come find out why.

Color: Interaction, Behavior, and Meaning Part 1
Leonard Stokes Professor/Author -SUNY Purchase
Color will be considered from the standpoint of perception and experience in the world rather than theory. It will be shown that color appearance and behavior are wholly dependent upon context. This basic truth will be conveyed by looking at demonstrations of color relativity, gleaned from more than thirty years of teaching. The presentation will touch upon not only color grammar and syntax, but also color’s expressive potential.
CSS3 & Advanced Design
Paul Trani Adobe Developer Evangelist -Adobe
The power of the web has arrived for mobile phones and tablets. CSS3 gives web sites a dynamic, interactive capability and greater useability. CSS3 adds fine grained controls for designers looking to bring the web closer to reality.
Device Specific vs Browser Development
William Volk CCO -Playscreen
Innovation on the Internet is not only common, its frequent. The result is that many new solutions are created with single purpose devices that take advantage of the ubiquity of the Internet while rendering a unique experience. However, HTML5 is a game changer that makes a universal experience possible on any browser. The question we answer in this discussion is will specific devices decline or change as a result? What should the criteria be in making this decision?

System Gamification
William Volk CCO -Playscreen
Games are as popular as video games and social networks. Employees are use to expansive displays on their screens. How does their experience impact the requirements for existing systems. As HTML5 comes of age the systems have to develop more gamelike features to ensure the employee is sufficiently engaged to reduce errors and increase productivity. Learn from the gaming experts what keeps their apps viral and engaged.
The HTML5 Browser Wars
Steve Adams -Crossfire Consulting
The HTML5 standard is being deployed, but are all browsers equal? Will HTML5 be truly interoperable or will the standard degrade into a mixed bag of browser specific implementations? This session shows the Gallery of Great HTML5 implementations putting browsers to the test. What works and will become the standard enabling enough momentum to force adherence.

Beginning the Story
Whitney Quesenbery Author -WQusability
Kevin Brooks User Experience Designer -Motorola Mobility
User experience is full of stories: personas, journeys with tasks and goals, design scenarios and even usability testing tasks. You’ve probably been telling stories all along but haven’t thought about how to use them in your work. This session will explore ways to use stories for a richer understanding of user experience
Presenting Scalar Vector Graphics 1
David Dailey Professor of Computer Science -Slippery Rock University
There is magic in the simple scaling on the screen of images and guidelines. Scalar Vector Graphics [SVG] delivers filter effects that draws shapes proportional to the screen regardless of their size. The use of SVG is often found in gaming sites, graphics and visuals. Additionally, the use of SVG enables navigation from bitmaps. Want to impact the users navigation graphically? SVG is a key ingredient in your work.
The New Threat: Browser Security 1
Marco Pistoia Manager and Research Staff Member -IBM T. J. Watson Research Center
The browser is a likely target for the hacker to probe, since the software is interactive with web servers and enables client side processing. What are the common vulnerabilities to be attacked and how does the next generation of the web browsers impact security? How does JavaScript add to the Enterprise vulnerabilities.

The New Threat: Browser Security 2
Marco Pistoia Manager and Research Staff Member -IBM T. J. Watson Research Center
The second phase of the discussion looks at the issues of enabling local storage. As a result of enabling interactions on the client device the web now has a remote management and control ability. Locking down and partitioning your client device becomes the critical pathway to security.
The Power of Story
Whitney Quesenbery Author -WQusability
Kevin Brooks User Experience Designer -Motorola Mobility
The techniques of storytelling can help you explore user research or develop design ideas that make emotional connections to users. We will look at why stories are so persuasive, ways to use stories to communicate design ideas and how to get the whole team engaged in solving a problem by using stories.
