Dates: November 29-30, 2010
Location: Prague, Czech Republic
Venue address: CVUT FEL, Technicka 2, Praha 6 – Dejvice, Czech Republic
Collocated events: VUMS clustering meeting, VERITAS Scientific Advisory Board meeting, 3rd VERITAS plenary meeting

Ensuring that all products developed in the car, home, work, healthcare and entertainment industry are accessible and designed for all, lies at the core of the VERITAS project. Through the development of virtual user models that can be inserted in simulation environments, any design elements that cause barriers for the beneficiaries (people with disabilities and older people) can be detected at the very beginning, thus allowing the designers to improve their initial design and make it inclusive.
The User Forum aims to bring together on the one hand the developers and designers, and on the other hand the beneficiaries of the developed products and services. The Workshop aims to gain momentum among all affected stakeholders from the aforementioned industries, while offering equally a stage for all involved designers and beneficiaries to discuss their needs with the industry. These events will also introduce already developed virtual user models, and demonstrate a first working prototype.
