Promoting a gender perspective in digital change still is a great challenge. On the conference Gender&IT 2018 on 14/15th May in Heilbronn, Germany, we will discuss possibilities of cooperation between science and practitioners for successful tools and design.
You can expect interesting lectures and talks out of HCI, design research, technology, gender studies and computer science. We welcome researchers form universities, research institutes and research departments of companies to present their work and share their experiences.
The Conference will be opened by
- Prof. Dr. Nicola Marsden (Conference Chair)
- Prof. Dr.-Ing Oliver Lenzen, Rector of Heilbronn University
- Christine Regitz, Vice President SAP SE / GI Vice President
The conference opens on May 14th at 9 a. m. and ends on May 15th at 1:30 p. m. with a Lunch & Farewell by Nicola Marsden and Volker Wulf (Conference Chairs).
Further information about the Keynote Speakers:
Monday, 14th May, 2018, 10:30 - 11:15 a. m. Keynote "The @Work Experience Framework - A guide for retaining women in technology", Karen Holtzblatt, InContext Enterprises & WITops.
Karen Holtzblatt is known in the UX world for introducing InContext’s unique customer-centered design approach, Contextual Design. She knows what it takes to be successful in the world of technology as a consultant, and has proven her skills in persuading technology and business geeks to see how their products and services impact the way people work. Karen has pioneered transformative ideas and design approaches throughout her career, most recently seen in her Cool Project exploring users’ experiences of cool products and the rapidly changing role of technology in people’s lives.
Most recently Karen has turned her attention to the challenges women face in technology companies. The Women in Tech Project focuses on understanding why women leave their tech jobs mid-career. The framework developed with a combination of qualitative and quantitative research helps explain what works for women in the daily life of being a technology professional. Additional research is now being conducted to expand job types, shorten the survey, and validate it as an assessment tool to take the temperature of teams and companies. See an overview: www.incontextdesign.com/womenintech/
This research was begun in 2014 as part of giving a course on women in technology at Stanford. It continues as part of Karen’s position as Research Scientist at University of Maryland and as a grass roots movement soliciting volunteers from the community to become part of understanding what is impacting their lives.
For the conference, Karen will present an overview of the framework and the results of the research.
Tuesday, 15th May 2018, 12:30 - 1:15 a. m.: Keynote: "Gender Perspectives in Practice-Based Computing", Prof. Dr. Volker Wulf, University of Siegen
Volker Wulf holds the Chair of Information Systems and New Media at the University of Siegen. He is also the Managing Director of the School of Media and Information (iSchool) at the University of Siegen. In addition, he heads the business field of User-oriented Software Engineering (USE) at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology (FhG-FIT) in Sankt Augustin.
After completing a double degree in Computer Science and Business Administration at the RWTH Aachen and the University of Paris VI, he gained his PhD at Dortmund University. This was followed by a number of visiting and deputy professorships at the Universities of Hamburg and Freiburg. The completion of habilitation (from the Faculty of Computer Science, University of Hamburg) was followed by a research stay at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). As a Fulbright Scholar, he spent a sabbatical semester at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and Stanford University, Palo Alto in 2006/7. Since 2011 he has officiated as Dean of Faculty III (School of Economic Disciplines) at the University of Siegen.
His research interests lie primarily in the area of IT system design in real-world contexts. This includes the development of innovative applications from the areas of cooperation systems, knowledge management and community support. One special focus lies on flexible software architecture which can be adapted by end-users. Further research focuses on methods of user-oriented software development and introduction processes.
Participation in the conference is free of charge. Please register now: Binding Registration.
