Call for Papers


We propose aworkshop to foster research on inclusive and equitable ubiquitous computing in Latin America (LATAM). The meeting is inspired by the ACM SIGCHI Across Borders Initiative, the 1st CSCW@LatAm Research Catalyst Workshop, and ACM Future of Computing Academy efforts.

We aim to: 1) discuss opportunities and challenges of defining and accomplishing inclusive and equitable ubiquitous computing centered on LATAM; 2) collaboratively mentor emerging related projects focused on LATAM; 3) create a space that encourages cross-country collaborations to address together common research challenges, whilst also strengthening the links among all the members, regardless of their level of expertise in the field; and, 4) provide a forum for dialogue between local communities in Latin America (e.g., educational and health workers, NGOs) and UbiComp researchers, with the aim of identifying pathways for codesign-focused collaborations between diverse groups of stakeholders on problems of public interest.



UbiComp/ISWC 2023 is featuring a special program called ASSET (Americas Student Symposium on Emerging Technologies) as part of SIGMOBILE’s student outreach program. Student participating to ASSET will be divided into small groups and each group will be provided with an excellent and dynamic research mentor who will help them hone their research skills.
