Pistoia Alliance User Experience Life Science (UXLS) Conference 2021



Date: 15th – 26th March 2021


The Pistoia Alliance UXLS Project Team will be holding its Annual Conference from Monday, March 15 to Friday, March 26, 2021. This will be a virtual conference to be held over two half days each week with many interactive sessions to enable our community to learn and meet.


The Pistoia Alliance UXLS project and community enables UX practitioners to share UX best practices in the life sciences. Find out more about us at


User Experience is the science of conducting research with end users of digital products (software, websites, mobile apps, connected devices, etc.) and using the insights gained from that research to design products that are as easy to use as possible. The conference is specifically focused on UX practitioners in the life sciences field and will have a mixture of hands-on interactive sessions in addition to seminar style talks.

As a conference team, we are being guided by our community who have voiced their desire for an event that will fulfil the following requirements:

  • Authenticity – authentic content that speaks to real problems in the life science and healthcare space.
  • Interactions – we favor interactions between delegates over passive speaking.
  • Like-minded – space for like-minded people to come together over topics they are passionate about.

The conference team is seeking speakers from the community to contribute to our UXLS conference.
