Going to the UPA Conference in Munich?


Are you planning on going to the UPA International Conference in Munich in May?  If so, please send me an email at [log in to unmask] com.   I’m looking forward to the conference myself and will compile a list of other DC-Metro usability professionals who are going to the conference too.  I will send out the compiled list to everyone else who is also going.   At UPA’s first European venue, it will be nice to keep an eye out for some DC-area locals too!
