Interacción 2016 is the 17th edition of the International Conference promoted by the Spanish Human Computer Interaction Association (Spanish name: Asociación para la Interacción Persona-Ordenador, AIPO), whose main objective is to promote and disseminate the recent advances in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. This conference will provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas on design and application of techniques and methodologies with a multidisciplinary approach.

The Human Computer Association (AIPO) has been organizing this conference since 2000 (Granada). Subsequent editions were held in Salamanca (2001), Leganes (2002), Vigo (2003), Lleida (2004), Granada (during the celebration of CEDI 2005), Puertollano (2006), Zaragoza (during the celebration of CEDI 2007), Albacete (2008), jointly Barcelona (Spain) and Armenia (Colombia) (2009), Valencia (during the celebration of CEDI 2010), Lisbon (jointly with INTERACT 2011), Elche (jointly MexIHC 2012), Madrid (during the celebration of CEDI 2013), Tenerife (2014) and Vilanova I la Geltrú (2015).

The 17th International Conference Interacción 2016 will be organized by the Research Group in InterAction and eLearning (University of Salamanca).

Workshop: EnGendering Technologies

Date of the Workshop

EnGendering technologies aims at exploring equal participation in education, design, production and use of technologies, especially in ICT, but also demanding innovative and more inclusive research, innovation and products.

Technology and society complement each other: symbolic and cultural meanings guide the process of constructing technologies and, in reverse, they delineate new cultural images and practices. Values, social relations, and world visions become inscribed in technologies, and shape and maintain gender ideologies and identities, reproducing the idea that women are strange to the world of technology which is false. Changing the discourses, practices and values in the process of design and educational system should be the key to redefine the traditional gendered relations with technology. The aim is to achieve better ICT practices and products in order to promote positive gender impact. Gendering that creative process means participating in the design of a better common future.

A large body of research has traditionally focused on women’s exclusion from the fields of science and technology. This research points to several barriers and challenges that make women’s access to knowledge difficult, as well as jobs and a full participation of women in current technological development. However, some research has turned its attention to gender inclusion processes and its impacts. In this sense, motivations, actions and mechanisms that helped the inclusion of women in technological fields have been explored. Similarly, the impacts of gender awareness and gender inclusion in the design, development and use of new technologies have been highlighted. An increasing body of research is exploring how gender and technologies are mutually shaped in a fluid and dynamic manner. Results show that both challenges and opportunities for gender and technological transformations are difficult to understand without a multidisciplinary approach.


As Engendering Technologies at Interacción 2014 and 2015, this workshop is focused on all the gender aspects of the technology domain. Main topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Gender & Human Computer Interaction (HCI)
  • Design for women, designing by women
  • Gender & software engineering
  • Gender issues in technology design
  • Women inclusion in technologies
  • Gender digital divide
  • Gender & video games
  • Gender & Information Technology
  • Gender & Science and Technology
  • Cultural & symbolic dimensions of ICT
  • Changing relations between people and ICT
  • Gender & user-centered design methodologies
  • Gendered innovations in ICT
  • Women, technology and power
  • Best practices on Gender and ICT
  • Mentoring and experiences for attracting women to ICT studies and professions
  • Gender & Digital Security and risks
  • Gender & IT inclusion policies and actions


Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair web based submission system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=interaccion2016) . Inside the EasyChair the word WEGT must be included in the title field. For example, "WEGT here your title".

Keynote and Opening Plenary

stephen-brewsterStephen Brewster is a Professor of Human-Computer Interaction in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow. He got his PhD in auditory interfaces at the University of York. After a period spent working in Finland and Norway, he has worked in Glasgow since 1995. He leads the Multimodal Interaction Group, which is very active and has a very strong international reputation. His research focuses on multimodal HCI, or using multiple sensory modalities and control mechanisms (particularly audio, haptics and gesture) to create a rich, natural interaction between human and computer. His work has a strong experimental focus, applying perceptual research to practical situations. A long term focus has been on mobile interaction and how we can design better user interfaces for users who are on the move. Other areas of interest include accessibility, wearable devices and in-car interaction. He pioneered the study of non-speech audio and haptic interaction for mobile devices with work starting in the 1990's.
According to Google Scholar, he has 375 publications. He has served as an Associate Chair, Sub-Committee Chair and Papers Chair, and has chaired the Interactivity, Doctoral Consortium and Student Design Competition tracks at ACM CHI.

Title: Multimodal Human-Computer Interfaces

This talk introduces the topic of multimodal interaction and discusses some of the most important work in the area, with a focus on haptics, audio and smell based interaction. Each modality is presented in terms of perception, technology and applications. In particular, the talk covers the area of non-speech audio, with discussion of Earcons, Auditory Icons, sonification and other forms of sound. For haptics, force-feedback, vibrotactile, thermal feedback are described along with pressure and force input. For smell, the longer version of the talk goes into more details about the different modalities with more examples of each.
