Seminar on international user studies and personas

We invite companies with an interest in international markets, users, and personas to a seminar on international user studies. At the seminar we will present the results from our latest research project on how Danish companies do International User Studies and in line with that work with International Personas.

The research project has been running from January-June 2014 and is a cooperation between Center for Persona Research and -Application and Aalborg University, Copenhagen, supported by InfinIT.

The programme contains two main themes and will have a workshop format that includes discussions:
  • Part one: The International Dimension: findings about culture and intercultural communication
  • Part two: International User Studies and Personas: How companies collect and present data about their international users
