Welcome to the UX Scotland 2016 site!

UX Scotland is a hands-on, practical UX & design conference that allows participants to connect and learn from their peers and leaders in the industry.

Feel free to look around the site to get a feel for what happens at UX Scotland. We’ve added coverage to the session pages where it is available - this may include blogs, slides or videos of sessions but other than that we have left most of the site as it was at the time of the event.

You can still join our mailing list to ensure you don't miss out - be the first to hear important announcements and event news.

Session Types

Need help planning which sessions to attend? We've provided a breakdown of our various session types below.

Case Study/Experience Report

A presentation and discussion of real-life (not theoretical) experiences of the application (or mis-application) of service design techniques. Case studies and experience reports include some discussion of lessons learned and an indication of how novel the work is.


Participants learn a new approach, tool or technology through using it to solve one or more practical exercises. Any software/hardware requirements are disclosed in the session description.


A session focused around some specific tool, technique or issue. Primarily led by the speaker, tutorials usually include some elements of interactivity or individual / group exercise.


An in-depth working session on a specific topic. May include paper presentations.

Lightning Talks
