Workshop Description and Goals
In this workshop, we want to invite researchers and practitioners to discuss why and how digital transformation for a sustainable society in the 21st century should be shaped in order to improve inclusion of people who do not participate or participate less to digital transformation processes than mainstream user groups. These user groups include people with special needs (i.e. people with disabilities or people in risk of social or digital exclusion) but also, we want to emphasize on the role of women in science for an inclusive society.
We want to share best-practice experiences of successful initiatives, discuss empirical outcomes and novel designs to build up and strengthen the community of interest in inclusion and the impact of gender. Besides building an international community, the workshop aims to identify challenges and opportunities related to digital transformation to promote inclusion and reduce the gender gap, on presented research and experiences and related to the following questions:
How can we improve the inclusion of people with special needs by digital transformation (DT)? This is, how can we make DT so flexible and adaptable that people with special needs can participate and make use of it?
How can we arise the position of women in the process of shaping DT? Traditionally, software is designed by men to men. But female contributions, preferences and approaches should be included, shared and promoted as well.
Emerging concepts and methodologies
Persuasive technology for improved inclusion
Authors should submit original, unpublished research papers. All papers must not simultaneously be submitted to another journal or conference. There are two types of submissions:
Full Paper submissions have a maximum of 12 pages.
Short Paper submissions have a maximum of 6 pages.
Papers and abstracts should be submitted through the submission web site in PDF format. Authors should follow the Springer formatting for Lecture Notes on Computer Science as indicated here:
By submitting a paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one of them will register to the conference and present the paper. It is expected that at least one author will register for each accepted paper. Only papers that have been presented by their authors during the conference will be published in the conference proceedings.
The proceedings of the I3E2019 workshops will be published as a book in IFIP-AICT series (IFIP- Advances in Information and Communication Technology) which is a better fit based on Springer.
(ISSN: 1868-4238) https://www.springer.com/series/6102
The proceedings will be published after the conference, this will give possibility to the authors to make updates/changes based on the feedback received during the conference.
