Doctoral Consortium Organizers: Opening and introduction

9.30 Invited talk. Monica Bordegoni: ” User Experience and Emotions “ Abstract. In an era of globalization and strong competitiveness of products, companies must deal with how to improve their products, not only from a functional point of view, but especially from an experiential and emotional perspective. User experience refers to the effectiveness, usability and satisfaction that products provide to users. Emotions are elicited during the interaction with the product. It is strategic to find proper methods to design products that cause a positive experience and elicit positive emotions. Emotional Engineering is a recently developed discipline researching on methods to design systems and products which appeal to emotion and sensibility by translating human sensibility and multi-sensory effects, including images, sounds, haptic/tactile effects and smells, into physical design factors.Monica Bordegoni. Full professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, School of Design at Politecnico di Milano, she teaches Virtual Prototyping at the School of Design and at the School of Industrial Engineering. She is coordinator of the Virtual Prototyping Lab. She is presently chairing the ASME-CIE Virtual Environment and Systems committee and co-chairing the DesignSociety SIG on Emotional Engineering.
