Organizers of the IDC 2020 Full Day Workshop
The organizers represent different disciplinary backgrounds, cultures, and experiences of conducting HCI research with children, and each has experience chairing, organizing and/or participating in previous ACM workshops (e.g. CHI, IDC, CSCW).
Alissa N. Antle is Professor, innovator and designer, whose research pushes the boundaries of computation to explore the ways that technical innovations can improve, augment, and support children’s development.
Christopher Frauenberger is Senior Researcher at the Human-Computer Interaction Group, TU Wien (Vienna University of Technology). His research focuses on designing technology with and for marginalized user groups, in particular autistic children.
Monica Landoni is a Senior Researcher at the faculty of Informatics at Università della Svizzera Italiana, USI, in Lugano. She has worked on a number of national and European projects investigating how technology can support children when searching, writing and reading for education and pleasure.
Jerry Alan Fails is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at Boise State University in Boise, Idaho. His primary area of research is HCI and participatory design, with a focus on technologies that engage children with one another, get them active, and encourage them to explore the world around them.
Marina Jirotka is Professor of Human-Centered Computing at the University of Oxford. She investigates technologies that are more responsive to societal acceptability – recently awarded an EPSRC Established Career Fellowship focused on Developing Responsible Robots for the Digital Economy.
Nalin Tutiyaphuengprasert is the co-founder and senior vice provost of Darunsikkhalai School for Innovative Learning in Bangkok, Thailand. Since 2001, she has worked in schools with teachers and students on constructionism-based projects including DSIL FabLearn in conjunction with Stanford University.
Helena Webb is a Senior Researcher of Human-Centred Computing at the University of Oxford. Her projects explore contextual interaction with and innovation of technologies by focusing on impact of setting and social action. Projects include: Digital Wildfire, UnBias, LabHack, and RoboTIPS project.
