Call for Expressions of Interest: Springer Book on HCI and older people

Call for Expressions of Interest: Springer Book on HCI and older people

Book Title: Perspectives on Human-Computer Interaction research with older people
Publisher: Springer, HCI Series
Editor: Sergio Sayago (Universitat de Barcelona, Spain)
Abstract: Ageing has become a significant research area in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in recent years. This book presents the results of a systematic review of approximately 20 years worth of HCI research on older people and digital technologies. By drawing upon this review and HCI research waves (Human Factors, Human Actors and User eXperience), this book posits that the central role that (i) age-related declines in functional abilities, (ii) intergenerational Computer-Mediated Communication, (iii) independent living, and (iv) fairly (negative) stereotyped views of older people take on contemporary HCI research, has come to a stage where a change of paradigm – in the sense introduced by Kuhn in The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1962) – is needed to better understand, design, and evaluate older people’s digital experiences in the 21st century. This change of paradigm is grounded in the fact that ageing is a multifaceted process, the role that digital technologies (can) take on in older people’s lives goes beyond health and communication, and the relationship between older people and digital technologies is, or might be, richer than one might imagine (in a positive or negative way) when witnessing and / or talking to them about their digital experiences. This book will examine, from an HCI perspective, the relationship between older people and several topics which are receiving increasing research attention in HCI and Ageing studies, ranging from citizen science, accessibility, big data, the making culture and positive computing to technology adoption, emotions, leisure, creativity and gender, in an attempt to provide new perspectives on HCI research with, and for, older people. The chapters of this book will be written by international professionals working in academia and in industry. The chapters will be a mix of literature reviews, provocative case studies, insightful lessons learned from years of experience and the field, and conversations with older people about their present-day and envisaged, yet-to-be-designed, future digital experiences.
Submission procedure:
  • Authors are kindly invited to submit expressions of interests that provide a succinct summary of the most relevant aspects of their intended chapters.
  • Expressions of interests will be peer-reviewed.
  • Authors of accepted expressions of interest will be invited to prepare and submit full chapters taking into account the feedback provided by the editor.
  • Chapters will be permitted two rounds of peer-review
Schedule of publication:
  • Expressions of interest: mid-January 2017
  • First versions of chapters: mid-September 2017
  • Second and final versions of chapters: December 2017
  • Book (tentative): Spring 2018

Open postdoctoral fellowship at Universitat de Barcelona

Open Postdoctoral fellowship/s in the Dept. de Matemàtiques i Informàtica at Universitat de Barcelona.
The Dept. de Matemàtiques i Informàtica (Mathematics and Computer Science) is looking for and willing to support excellent postdoctoral researchers in the fields of Machine Learning, Computer Vision and Human-Computer Interaction who are interested in applying for a Beatriu de Pinós (BP) 2016 fellowship so as to conduct a two-year postdoc at Universitat de Barcelona. 
The purpose of the Beatriu de Pinós programme* is to award 60 individuals grants for the hiring and incorporation of postdoctoral research staff into the Catalan science and technology system. These grants are designed for the incorporation of young researchers (who obtained their PhD between 2007 and 2014 and have not resided or worked in Spain for more than 12 months in the three years prior to date of submission of the application), so that they can improve their professional prospects and obtain an independent research position. Candidates must carry out a research and training project for the entire period of the grant, one that will allow them to progress in the development of their professional careers. Please check the website of the BP programme* for further information about this fellowship.
 Some of the specific projects we are working include:
    + Machine Learning: Deep Learning for time series analysis, Supervised Online Learning Algorithms, Bayesian statistics and deep learning. Contact: Oriol Pujol (oriol_pujol@ub.edu)
    + Computer Vision: Deep learning for Visual Lifelogging and Egocentric Vision, Medical Imaging and Neuroimage processing, Computer Vision and Deep learning for Food Analysis, Deep learning and Image Aesthetics. Ultrasound image analysis. Contact: Petia Radeva (petia.ivanova@ub.edu)
    + Human-Computer Interaction: ageing / older people, interfaces for people with mild dementia or with aphasia, universal design of STEM documents. Contact: Mireia Ribera (ribera@ub.edu)

Deadline: 01/12/2016
