Below are the most interesting ones, followed by my impressions of 3 more European conferences: Euro IA, UX Russia and Design by Fire. Søren Muus was faster than me and he published an answer on the website of the newly created European Centre for User Experience (the ecux is the new name for the European IA network mentioned in the “overdoing it&# section of the newsletter).
