EcoWeb - Interaction Design in the Inclusive Social Web
EcoWeb is a Project situated in the research context of the Challenge #4 of the Brazilian Computer Society: Participative and universal access of Brazilian citizens to knowledge, directed to the development and research that propose the construction of inclusive social systems.
This project proposes a systemic approach to the design of interaction in the Web that we are naming EcoWeb, and aims to build a conceptual framework that instrumentalizes those involved with the design and development of such systems to produce solutions that effectively meet users' requirements, taking into account their differences, needs, preferences, limitations, values and other cultural aspects.
Project's conceptual and methodological bases: Organizational Semiotics, including Web-pragmatic aspects and human and technological values.
Expected results: the clarification of research questions in terms of its technical challenges and solutions to guide and support the design, development and evaluation of inclusive social systems on the Web.
EcoWeb is coordinated by the ACM Rigo Award prizewinning, M. Cecilia C. Baranauskas, being funded by CNPq through the Process 560044/2010-0, and counting with the support of the Institute of Computing - IC and NIED, both from the University of Campinas - UNICAMP.
