- WORLD USABILITY DAY 2016: the reciprocal participation to the events organized by the two partners (WUD Torino 2014 and 2015, CHI Italy Rome 2015) highlighted the interest in organizing a joint event under the umbrella of the WUD, which will be extended in 2016 both from a geographic and thematic point of view.
- PROGETTO ITALIA LOGIN: as part of the government strategy for innovation, some members of the two associations have been involved in the management of a community of experts whose aim is to collaborate and share a set of best practices in projects. The aim is to improve the consultation content and efficiency of the online services provided by different government departments and keep updated the usability guidelines.
On this basis, an initial working group was set up with Cristina Gena SIG CHI Italy, Daniela Fogli SIG CHI Italy/SIE, Rossana Actis-Grosso SIG CHI Italy/SIE, Silvia Gilotta SIE.
The World Usability Day is an annual event since 2005, which is promoted on a global scale by a community of professionals with different backgrounds – industry, education, public administration, research. They all share one goal:

The 11th Edition of CHItaly, the biannual Conference of the Italian SIGCHI Chapter, will be held from 28th to 30th of September 2015 in Rome. Italian CHI community is very active and smart, and this is its traditional meeting event. However, nowadays sharing and dissemination are a must. We would like this venue to represent once more also an occasion to exchange ideas and experiences with European and overseas researchers and practitioners. Even for this reason the official language of the conference has always been English.
ACM AVI 2014 will be held in Como (Italy) at the campus of Politecnico di Milano, from May 27th to 30th, 2014.
Started in Rome in 1992, AVI has become a biannual appointment for a wide international community of experts with a broad range of backgrounds. Through more than two decades, the Conference has contributed to the progress of Human-Computer Interaction, offering a forum to present and disseminate new technological results, new paradigms and new visions for interaction and interfaces.
