The World Usability Day (WUD) of Turin will take place in the Aula Magna of the Campus Luigi Einaudi of Turin University, on Thursday, November 10, 2016, from 9:00 am.

It is an annual event, promoted by the User Experience Professional Association (UXPA) and a community of professionals, who work in different fields to ensure that the technology works as a factor in the promotion of the people, the expression, the personal fulfillment and the active citizenship.

The theme of this edition is sustainability, or Green UX. Sustainability, regeneration and sharing are the three key words of the new economic, social and productive models. These have launched a conversion from consumption to re-use, from property to sharing and circularity. At the same time those, who design and offer products and services, are redefining the design in terms of sustainability, sharing and circularity of the future.

The WUD TO 2016 is an opportunity to try out the (re)design with and for people, and new ways to provide services and regenerated, sustainable, circular products, that are able to bridge the physical gap and to create physical a social impact .

The event is open to everyone, but you must be registrated.

The project derives from the collaboration between the National Cinema Museum and the University of Turin and was created to strengthen the renewed interest of the young audience in the enjoyment of the cinema and the promotion of film culture.

The initiative aims to reactivate the ideals of CUC, Centro Universitario Cinematografico (University Film Centre), which was active in the University of Turin in the late fifties and early seventies: the students proposed an exhibition that the National Cinema Museum and the University of Turin, together with the group “MYLF”, committed to supporting by offering them the chance to realize it at Cinema Massimo.

The competition ended on 30 September and, after examining the proposals, judges decided to give two first prizes ex aequo: one to the group of DAMS students who proposed the project “Movie Club 2.0. Ieri, oggi and domani … al cinema “” and one to the mixed group of students from other faculties proposing the project “DiVisione in Visione“.The two exhibitions will take place at the Hall 3 of Cinema Massimo in the course of 2017.
