UE: Usability Engineering

The purpose of the Usability Engineering symposium is to "bring together industry and government to exchange information and strategies for achieving effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction in computer-based government systems" by "incorporating usability engineering techniques into the government system design and development process."

The first two symposia were held in 1996 and 1997 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland. In 1998, UPA and NIST co-sponsored a special Government Day/UE3 that immediately preceded UPA 98.
