User Experience Conferences for 2011

User Experience Conferences for 2011
Feb 4th, 2011

I thought it would be handy to create a list of the UX conferences to help you put together your budget and schedule for what user experience conferences to attend this year.  I decided to weed out all of the events that don’t have at good portion of their programing dedicated to the topic of UX to improve the signal to noise ratio. 

Some events don’t have the price mentioned because registration isn’t open.  I didn’t list any events I felt were not conferences (e.g. local user group meetings, company sanctioned workshops & roadshows, etc).  I also didn’t include any conferences that do not have their 2011 conference site online yet or at least a splash page.  I realize that some events didn’t make it on my list should have, if you know of a UX-focused event that should be listed here, please contact me.
