You might have seen or heard it already – perfectly placed to close this interesting year 2014 – the call for proposals for the ASUG Annual Conference 2015 is open again – since Dec 8 with a deadline on January 5. And YES especially the deadline might be – at least for some of you – a critical information as for lots of you that might fall directly into vacation time… so why bother this year?
Pretty simple reasons as always – there is no better chance to share thoughts, experiences, learnings, do’s and dont’s with a large community by providing insights into your projects, approaches, implementations.. while at the same time having the chance to learn from and socialize with others that face the same challenges as you.. and to get hold of all the SAP experts on site at SAPPHIRE NOW. And if your submission is accepted, you even get a complimentary conference pass.
What is DIFFERENT this year – there is a new ASUG track for USER EXPERIENCE you can assign your proposals to. Thanks to the rising interest inside the ASUG community – forming an ASUG User Experience and Interface Influence Council as well as a Special Interest Group User Experience – this new track now allows to group all UX or UI technology related content and make it easy for the audience to follow this hot topic.
It is pretty easy to submit your abstracts and you will find this new track directly when you are in the submission form at the top:
Besides that – if you are assigning your submission to other tracks – you can still indicate a high focus on User experience of your content by choosing a submission category UX further down below your abstract.
So I want to encourage you to grab that opportunity and submit your stories that are related to User Experience or SAP User Interface technologies.
No matter if it is related to providing single access points for users with NWBC, SAP Portal or the Fiori Launchpad, or your first steps with SAP Fiori apps or Screen Personas to make life easier for your users. Or even your own experience putting your hands down into the Floorplan Manager, the UI theme designer, the SAP Web IDE, building apps with SAPUI5 or OpenUI5… just go ahead and share it. We have also seen great value for the community out of customer presentations around understanding UX and implementing it in the DNA of an organization with all its challenges.. so the area UX is broad and the topic is really hot based on all the feedback we got from ASUG and all around the world. So make use of that opportunity.
Kind Regards and hope to meet you at SAPPHIRE NOW / ASUG ANNUAL CONFERENCE in Orlando, May 5-7, 2015
