Designing forms for technical specialists

I had the opportunity to give a talk on forms at the EBI, part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) – “EBI provides freely available data from life science experiments, performs basic research in computational biology and offers an extensive user training programme, supporting researchers in academia and industry”.

A typical EBI form allows highly-trained scientists to perform difficult tasks on complex data. These slides – Forms and their users: designing forms for technical specialists – present some before-and-after suggestions that provoked lively discussion.
