2015 Events

Usabil-a-thon DC 2015 is complete!

Congratulations to each participant that competed in Usabil-a-thon DC 2015. Each team created an extremely impressive product that provided critical information for their stake holder. The teams were able to evaluate their interfaces through heuristic evaluations, user testing, and developing prototypes. They then provided recommendations to their stake holder.

Thank you to all of the sponsors and volunteered who supported Usabilathon DC 2015.

Inaugural Event: Usabil-a-thon DC

When: April 11, 2015

Where: Arlington, VA

This inaugural event seeks to give talented GMU graduate students an opportunity to tackle real world human factors and usability problems while strengthening critical relationships between the students, companies, and the GMU Human Factors graduate program.


Students will leverage their backgrounds in human performance and cognition along with their knowledge of usability and task analysis to develop innovative and valuable solutions to the submitted projects. Students will have 12 hours to tackle the projects and deliver their process and final results to the companies. A panel of judges will determine the team that best developed and incorporated human factors and usability tools to complete their client’s project.
