UX STRAT USA 2017: Call for Presentations

This document describes the submission of presentation and workshop proposals for UX STRAT USA 2017, which will take place in Boulder CO on September 18 - 20, 2017. The audience will consist primarily of very experienced UX / CX / Product / Service design leaders, strategists, researchers, and designers, so your presentation or workshop proposal should be targeted to this audience. Proposals are due by midnight April 20, 2017, but can be submitted prior to that date using the form below or by downloading a proposal form and submiting it via email.

Presentation and workshop submissions should combine business strategy and UX / CX / Product / Service design. See previous UX STRAT presentations for topics that were approved by the UX STRAT expert review panel: (http://www.slideshare.net/UXSTRAT/presentations).


Presentations can be 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes. Only one presenter per proposal.

Proposals should focus on one of the following two types of presentations:

  1. Case study - Details your experience creating a user experience strategy for a customer experience, product, service, program, company or industry. Details about the business context, research methods and data analysis, strategy, and if possible the results achieved, need to be sufficiently rigorous and in-depth to engage a very experienced audience. What worked and what didn't work. You must already have approval to present this material from the company represented in the case study prior to submitting your proposal.

  2. Strategic framework - A framework or model that can be used by participants to plan a user experience strategy. NOTE: Very few strategic framework presentations will be selected.

Presentations and workshops on the basics of user experience design and usability will be rejected without being evaluated by the conference review panel. There will be zero tolerance for promotions or advertisements cloaked as presentations.


Workshops will be half-day long. They should be practical "How To" sessions while at the same time having a strong strategic focus. Should include examples, substantial participation exercises, and handouts.
