Clarisse Sieckenius de Souza - PUC-RIO, Brazil

Interaction for inclusion: Who should be included? (Keynote abstract)

Clarisse Sieckenius de Souza graduated as a Translator and Conference Interpreter from PUC-Rio, where she also obtained an M.A. in Portuguese and a Ph. D. in Applied (Computational) Linguistics. She worked as a translator and interpreter for English and French. From 1984 to 1988 she worked at EMBRATEL, heading a research and development project on natural language interfaces for data base systems. In 1988 she joined the Informatics Department at PUC-Rio, where she started the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) area and gave origin to Semiotic Engineering - a semiotically-based theory of HCI.

She has been a visiting scholar and professor in a number of institutions abroad, such as CSLI (Stanford University), SLIS (Indiana University), LT3 (University of Waterloo) and IFSM (University of Maryland Baltimore County). Among her areas of interest are: Semiotic Engineering and Computer Semiotics, Computational Linguistics, Artificial Intelligence and Computer Applications for Online Communities.

Paul Dourish - University of California, Irvine, USA

The Culture of Information: Ubiquitous Computing and Representations of Reality (Keynote abstract)

Paul Dourish is an Associate Professor in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at UC Irvine, and Associate Director of the Irvine Division of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology. His primary research interests are in the areas of Ubiquitous Computing, Computer-Supported Cooperative Work, and Human-Computer Interaction. He is especially interested in the foundational relationships between social scientific analysis and technological design. His book, "Where the Action Is: The Foundations of Embodied Interaction" was published by MIT Press in 2001; it explores how phenomenological accounts of action can provide an alternative to traditional cognitive analysis for understanding the embodied experience of interactive and computational systems.

Before coming to UCI, he was a Senior Member of Research Staff in the Computer Science Laboratory of Xerox PARC; he has also held research positions at Apple Computer and at Rank Xerox EuroPARC. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from University College, London, and a B.Sc. (Hons) in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science from the University of Edinburgh.

Guidelines for Presenting at CLIHC 2005

Preparation for your Presentation
* The full schedule of presentations is available on the conference website.
* Full papers will have 25 minutes available: 20 minutes for presentation followed by 5 minutes for question and answer.
* Short papers will have 15 minutes available: 12 minutes for presentation followed by 3 minutes for question and answer.
* The session chair will make sure that we adhere to the time schedule, so make sure you practice your pressentation well so that you do not overrun the allowed time.
* Presentations have been grouped into sessions so that all presentations in a session share the same language in which the paper was written (English or Portuguese). Your presentation, however, can be done in a language that you feel comfortable (English, Spanish or Portuguese). We request that you prepare your slides in English to help others follow your presentation. Also, be ready to receive questions in English, no matter what language you present. This allows all to use a common language (English) for discussion.

Some items that you might consider as you get your presentation ready.
* Keep in consideration the international nature of the audience. Do not use terms that are specific to customs, traditions, or locality of your country. And if you must use these, make sure you explain
them carefully so that all can understand your presentation.
* The two presentation rooms will be equiped with a projection display (LCD projector), a computer, and an overhead projector (for transparencies). You can bring your presentation in PowerPoint so it
can be installed on the computer in the room. If you require other special software, please contact us soon so we can make arrangements (if possible).

* Arrive at your session at least 15 minutes early.
* It is strongly encouraged that presenters in a session share the computer for presentation and have their presentations installed ahead of time, this removes the need to change computers or install software between presentations.
* Do not assume there will be Internet connection in the presentation rooms.
* A student helper will be available in the presentation room to help with your presentation setup.
