Lourdes Moreno, appointed as an expert member of the IFIP TC13 (Technical Committee on Human-Computer Interaction).

Lourdes Moreno was appointed as an expert member of the International Federation for Information Processing Technical Committee on Human-Computer Interaction (IFIP TC13) in September 2023. IFIP stands as the most significant organization in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Recognized by the United Nations and other global entities, it represents IT societies from 56 countries or regions, spanning all five continents with a membership exceeding half a million. This body brings together more than 3500 scientists from academia and industry, organized into over 101 working groups reporting to 13 technical committees. Its vast influence and international recognition establish it as the most authoritative and esteemed entity in the ICT world.

The IFIP-TC13 is the technical committee dedicated to advancing human-computer interaction (HCI) technology. Its primary aim is to encourage empirical research and to promote the application of knowledge and methods from the human sciences in the design and evaluation of computer systems. The committee strives to enhance the understanding of the relationship between formal design methods and the usability and acceptability of systems. Additionally, it is committed to developing guidelines, models, and methods that assist designers in creating more user-oriented and humanized computer systems.

Lourdes Moreno has been honored as an expert member, an accolade that, in conjunction with her role as president of the Human-Person Interaction Association (AIPO), positions her strategically. Her objective is to cultivate synergies between both organizations, conveying to the Spanish community the new approaches and methods being developed internationally. Simultaneously, she serves as a conduit to inform IFIP of the achievements and lines of work being pursued in Spain.

The main working groups of IFIP-TC13 are:

  • Education in HCI and HCI Curriculum
  • Methodologies for User-Centered Systems Design
  • Human-Computer Interaction, Disability and Aging
  • User Interface Engineering
  • Human Error, Resilience, Reliability, Safety and System Development
  • Human-Work Interaction Design group (HWID)
  • Human-Computer Interaction & Visualization (HCIV)
  • Interaction Design and International Development
  • Interaction Design and Children
  • Human-Centred Technology for Sustainability
