Ben Shneiderman, Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Computer Science, Founding Director (1983-2000) of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory (http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/), and a Member of the UM Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS) at the University of Maryland, USA, will give the Keynote Speech during the Opening Plenary Session on Tuesday, 11 July 2017, 18:00 hrs.
The title of his speech is "The New ABCs of Research: Grand Challenges for HCI"
Abstract: Solving the immense problems of the 21st century will require ambitious research teams that are skilled at producing practical solutions and foundational theories simultaneously – that is the ABC Principle: Applied & Basic Combined. Then these research teams can deliver high-impact outcomes by applying the SED Principle: Blend Science, Engineering and Design Thinking, which encourages use of the methods from all three disciplines. These guiding principles (ABC & SED) could drive HCI research to become the key transformational discipline for the 21st century by accelerating discovery and innovation.
