This symposium is part of SMART 2017.

   
   

Call for Papers:

Through this Symposium, we wish to question what is the best way to perform research on areas of investigation covering systems integration, socio-technical interfaces, cyber physical systems, human system integration and smart system integration. We coin as "smart and empowering interfaces" the design and implementation of human-human interaction, human-system and system-system that may foster the emergence of a positive intelligence for users. Such topics of research require tight collaboration among different scientific and industrial communities. However, the precise implementation of the trans/inter/multidisciplinary approaches is not self-evident. Hybridization of ideas, concepts, methods and subject areas is expected to be a powerful fertilizer, yet it is unclear how to make the best use of it. In addition, the radical changes taking place in science and technology cannot be possible without a genuine and long-term S&T (Sciences & Technologies) and HSS (Human and Social Sciences) rapprochement, which may be challenging due to the cultural divide across these communities of research.

Topics:

  • Empowering and Smart Interfaces in the Internet of Things
  • Empowering and Smart Interfaces in Smart-Factory
  • Empowering and Smart Interfaces in Smart-Grid
  • Empowering and Smart Interfaces in Innovation and Creativity
  • Philosophical aspects of Empowering and Smart Interfaces
  • Integrating Human Sciences and Technological Sciences
  • Comparing methods for cross-disciplinary research
  • Typologies of interdisciplinarity: the boundary work of definition
  • Interdisciplinarity in Research evaluation and doctoral student career
  • How to teach Empowering and Smart Interfaces in high degree?
  • Case studies on Empowering and Smart Interfaces
