Call: HCI and Academic Computing Education in the future – Computing Curricula 2020

[From the BCS-HCI elist]

Dear colleagues,

The Computing Curricula 2020 (CC2020) is a joint project launched by professional computing societies to examine the current curricular guidelines for academic degree programs in computing and provide a vision for the future of computing. “Humans and Organizations” is one of the 6 knowledge domains in all curricular guidelines, with “User Experience Design” or “Human-Computer Interaction” as an important knowledge area.

We have now produced a final draft report and invite you and your colleagues to review the draft report and complete the survey. The stakeholders of the report are, industry and employers, current and potential students and their care givers, government policy makers and academia.

Please feel free to distribute this draft report to your mail lists and any other stakeholders you consider appropriate. The survey must be completed by June 15th 2020. All comments will be taken into account as we produce the final report.… read more. “Call: HCI and Academic Computing Education in the future – Computing Curricula 2020”

Call: “Moral and Political Philosophy and AI” articles for Moral Philosophy and Politics

Call for Papers:

Moral and Political Philosophy and Artificial Intelligence
For the journal Moral Philosophy and Politics
Guest editor: Mathias Risse, Harvard University

Papers should be submitted before November 1, 2020

Many experts consider it likely that some kind of general artificial intelligence becomes possible in the 21st century (the kind of AI that approximates human abilities across a broad range). To be sure, many ethical issues arise already with regard to the kind of innovation that becomes possible through a combination of machine learning, Big Data, computational capacities and robotics. Governments have new tools at their disposal for screening citizen. The private sector collects data through use of electronic devices, to such an extent that some observers talk about commodification of all of human reality. Deepfakes undermine the use of a medium that for decades has functioned as a kind of epistemic backstop.… read more. “Call: “Moral and Political Philosophy and AI” articles for Moral Philosophy and Politics”

Call: 2020 XR Access Symposium

Call for Participation

Announcing the 2020 XR Access Symposium
July 20-21, 2020 | Virtual Event

Cornell Tech and the XR Access Initiative are pleased to announce the 2020 XR Access Symposium! This will be held virtually on July 20 and 21, 2020. If you’re interested in virtual or augmented reality or accessibility, keep reading!

At the first Symposium, organized by Cornell Tech and Verizon Media in Summer 2019, over 120 researchers, technologists, advocates, and industry leaders gathered for talks, demos, and working group sessions that generated actionable plans for making XR more accessible. For the past year, that’s been our mission: to ensure that as XR technologies become more pervasive in our work, school, and social lives, they’ll be designed and developed to be accessible by and for people with disabilities.

At the 2020 XR Access Symposium, we’ll review the community’s progress over the past year, highlight the latest advancements in XR accessibility research, and lay out concrete steps we can all take toward a more accessible future.… read more. “Call: 2020 XR Access Symposium”
