Short Bio

Simone Diniz Junqueira Barbosa is Associate Professor at the Informatics Department of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), where she teaches, advises and conducts research in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Level 2 researcher in CNPq (National Council for Scientific and Technological Development in Brazil), her current research interests involve: model-based interactive systems design; multimodal user interaction; data science and visual analytics; digital storytelling, increasing the quality of use (e.g. usability, communicability, accessibility) of interactive systems in diverse domains, by means of adaptation, analogy-making mechanisms, and other artificial intelligence techniques. In 2010 she co-authored the HCI textbook 'Interação Humano-Computador', for the Brazilian Computer Society series, published by Elsevier.
From 2005-2009, Simone was the head of the Semiotic Engineering Research Group laboratory, and in 2010, she founded the IDEIAS lab. Simone Barbosa has led several research projects, funded by CNPq, FAPERJ, Microsoft Research, and Hewlett-Packard. She has served in technical program committees of several national and international conferences, e.g., program co-chair of the first Latin-American Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, CLIHC 2003; late-breaking results co-chair for ACM/SIGCHI's CHI 2005; general co-chair of IFIP TC 13's INTERACT 2007, held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; panels co-chair for CHI 2011; general co-chair of ACM/SIGCHI's EICS 2012, held in Copenhagen, Denmark; late-breaking results co-chair for EICS 2013; program co-chair for IHC 2013; tutorials co-chair for EICS 2014; and full papers co-chair for INTERACT 2015, in Bamberg, Germany. She is SIG meetings co-chair for CHI 2015 in Seoul and for CHI 2016 in San Jose. She is program chair for IS-EUD 2017.
She was the Brazilian Computer Society's representative in IFIP TC 13 from 2008 to 2013, when she became an expert member and later Vice-chair for Working Groups and Special Interest Groups. In 2009 she has joined the Editorial Board of Interacting with Computers (formerly published by Elsevier, now by Oxford University Press); in 2011 the Advisory Board of IxD&A; in 2012 the editorial boards of Springer's HCI and CCIS book series; in 2013 the editorial board of Springer's OpenAccess Journal of Interaction Science, and in 2016 the editorial board of Springer's OpenAccess Journal of Software Engineering Research and Development. From 2013-2015 she was the chair of the Special Commission for HCI of the Brazilian Computer Society.
