 NUEVO:  Pláticas magistrales e invitadas


  Dr. Paolo Bucciol, Italian National Research Council

Ph.D. in Information and Systems Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, Italy. Project Engineer for the same university and Algorithm Engineer at Italian National Research Council. Field of research includes, but is not limited to, wireless mesh networks design and optimization, and coding, processing and transmission of digital signals on heterogeneous networks.

Plática: Servicios multimediales y banda ancha en redes inalámbricas y heterogéneas (Multimedia services and broadband provisioning en wireless and heterogeneous networks).

  Mauricio Angulo S., Microsoft

Plática: Reflexiones sobre Experiencia de Usuario

Resumen: Esta es una plática enfocada a análisis de uso e implementación sobre experiencia de usuario (user experience o UX) en la proceso de creación de desarrollo de soluciones basadas en tecnologías de información para cualquier plataforma o dispositivo. La charla tiene como intención sensibilizar a audiencias técnicas (diseñadores y/o desarrolladores) y tomadores de decisiones sobre la importancia y el impacto (positivo o negativo) de la implementación de conceptos de usabilidad, accesibilidad, diseño y localización, entre otros, desde las etapas tempranas de producción y planeación de soluciones tecnológicas. La charla cubre también algunos conceptos y prospectivas que se avecinan en el horizonte de tecnologías como son las interfaces de usuario naturales, software + servicios y Web 2.0.




Publication: Post-conference publication with a world leading publisher is anticipated;
Selected papers will be published in a post-conference special issue of the
journal Research in Computing Science, ISSN 1665-9899

Presentation modalities: oral, poster
