Joint conference IHC – CLIHC’2011

We are happy to announce the preliminary call for papers to the joint conference IHC – CLIHC’2011 that puts together the Brazilian and the Latin American communities of Human-Computer Interaction. Of course, inviting the international community to participate! This year’s theme is “From personal computers to folk computing”. It puts into perspective how using computers is becoming so intrinsic to our daily lives and how we can think of ways to use it to our favor. Lots of interesting ideas will certainly arise from these four days of discussions enlightened by the sun in Porto de Galinhas.

I’m honored to have been invited to work with the program committee  as a tutorial co-chair. This is an initiative to help  young researchers actively participate in the community. I’ve started working and I’ll keep you updated with the news. Now, take a look at the preliminary call for papers.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Alex Repennig (University of Colorado, Boulder – USA)
Jesús Favela (Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada – Mexico)

THEME

The joint conference theme is FROM PERSONAL COMPUTERS TO FOLK COMPUTING, which explicitly evokes not only the speedy evolution of context in the users experience with computers (from the individual to the collective and societal), but also a leap in the knowledge level required from users to take full advantage of widely available resources in Web 2.0 (from knowing about computers to knowing about computing). In the not-so-distant past, full citizenship depended on being literate with Maths and Language in order to use numbers and words efficiently to achieve one’s individual and collective goals in society. Now, this depends more and more on being literate with Computers, and using programs to express and achieve our social and civil goals, with the Internet enabling new forms for communities and societies.

The conference organizers invite the Brazilian, the Latin American and the International HCI communities to discuss the role of HCI researchers and practitioners in developing interactive technologies that truly promote Computing Literacy. We are interested in discussing the users’ needs, expectations, experiences and possibilities while using computers and computing to participate fully in social and civil activities supported by computer systems. In the context of Latin America, where this conference takes place, we are especially interested in discussing how HCI can promote and bring about increased levels of social development.

Contributions to the conference program should address one of the following non-exclusive aspects of moving FROM PERSONAL COMPUTERS TO FOLK
COMPUTING:

  • Accessibility and therapeutic uses of interaction
  • Adaptive, adaptable, intelligent user interfaces
  • Affective computing
  • Augmented reality
  • Computational literacy
  • Context-aware interaction
  • Effects of aging on interacting with computers
  • End user programming and development
  • Ergonomics
  • HCI and citizenship
  • HCI design – methods, tools and perspectives
  • HCI education
  • HCI evaluation – methods, tools and perspectives
  • HCI impacts on society: social life, health, education, transportation, sports, environment, etc.
  • HCI theories and theoretical approaches
  • Human-robot interaction
  • Integrating HCI and Software Engineering
  • Interacting with information visualizations
  • Interacting with new devices
  • Interaction and information processing
  • Interfaces for mobile and ambient systems
  • Internationalization and cultural aspects of HCI
  • Iteraction and entertainment
  • Legal issues in HCI
  • Multimodal interfaces
  • Natural user interfaces
  • Organic user interfaces
  • Social interaction (virtual and online communities)
  • Speech interfaces
  • Tactile interfaces
  • Task ad user analysis
  • Usable privacy and security tools
  • Web interfaces

Usi4Biz Has Its Second Journal Publication

We are happy to inform that an article reporting recent contributions on Usi4Biz research was accepted to be published on the Business Process Management Journal. The article is entitled “Getting Users Involved in the Alignment of their Needs with Business Processes Models and Systems” and it was written to report the experience of applying the Usi4Biz methodology at Belgacom, the biggest telecommunication company in Belgium.

Simulation of customer service

Simulation of customer service

This work was possible thanks to the support of Amandine Lievyns, a UCL master student at the time, who had an internship at Belgacom and helped us to apply the methodology in some internal processes. Her master dissertation was about this experience and she could give a significant contribution for this article.

Usi4Biz has been applied in two large organizations and with this article we have completed the publication of each one of these applications in journals. The previous one was an article in JUCS, reporting how Usi4Biz was conceived and applied in an insurance company, which is part of a Belgian bank.

A complete reference to this article will be available in our research page, as soon as we have more information from the publisher.

Important Milestone: Usi4Biz PhD Thesis Defended

An important milestone was achieved last month at IBM Forum Brussels. Kênia Sousa, who is now a doctor in Management Science, defended her PhD thesis on June 24th. Her thesis represents the consolidation of all research produced on the promising field of UI-Business alignment so far.

Kênia Sousa on her PhD defense at IBM Forum Brussels

The ceremony was preceded by a presentation of Dr. Noi Sukaviriya, a distinguished researcher of the Watson Research Center, NY. The subject of her presentation was “Human Aspects & Entity-Centric Business Process Modeling”, summarizing the IBM contributions on rethinking the way how business processes might be managed in the future.

The ceremony began when the jury entered the room and the president of the jury, Prof. Philippe Chevalier, presented the members of the jury, who were Prof. Jean Vanderdonckt (UCL, Belgium), the advisor; Prof. Gaëlle Calvary (UJF – Grenoble INP, France); Prof. Stéphane Faulkner (UCL, Belgium); Prof. Manuel Kolp (UCL, Belgium); and Dr. Noi Sukaviriya (IBM Research, United States). Unfortunately, the jury could not count on the presence of Prof. Elizabeth Furtado (Unifor, Brazil), who was Kenia’s advisor during her scientific initiation. Although, she had an important participation on Kenia’s private defense early this year.

Kenia answering questions from the jury

Kenia presented her research during 35 minutes. After that, the president passed the word to the jury for questions. She was questioned for more 15 minutes, going very well in all answers. Then the president called the jury in private out of the room to the final deliberation. After some minutes the jury and the president came back to the room and announced their decision, assigning to Kenia the title of “Docteur en sciences économiques et de gestion” for her thesis titled “A Model-Driven Approach for User Interface – Business Process Alignment”.

The ceremony was witnessed by friends, relatives, co-workers and IBM employees. Most of them were kindly mentioned in the thesis acknowledgments for their direct support for the success of this challenging journey. This post is one more opportunity to say “thank you” to all the supporters. At last, Congratulations Kênia! We hope you keep your motivation high to continue this impressive and highly recognized research.

Trust is Everything in Business

Going back to the experience at the Dagstuhl seminar. We noticed that a lot of products, from beverages to snacks, are available for sale near the cafeteria area. All we need to do is to pick what we want. The interesting thing is that there is nobody checking the products available to make sure that you’ve included your choices in your expense sheet. Another point is that all room doors do not close from outside, so when you go out to the seminar, to have dinner or out for a walk, your room is open. What is common in both situations? They simply trust us and it makes us thrust everyone.

There is a recent article at the Harvard Business Review that mentions the importance of trust in business. In any domain, from carpentry to IT, there is no technical skill that overshadows trust. This you cannot learn or teach, you can only feel it. Besides trusting your instincts to make decisions in the market place, trust between people plays even a larger role in the work environment. It is fundamental for everything to work smoothly.

Another great example of thrust with customers is by O’Reilly. First, they kindly convince customer to choose e-books saying “save a tree, go digital”, which is cheaper than buying the printed version. Second, when you buy e-books, they send an unprotected pdf file, trusting that you are not going to inappropriately share it with your friends and co-workers. When customers feel the trust, they are inclined to buy even more.

Trust is a sign of health in the business world, from workers to top management and from simple deals to global market confidence level. When you are recruiting people, how do you know they are trustworthy? Do you transmit to your customers how trustworthy you are? And how much do you trust them to take some risks?
