Conference on Gender & IT 2018

*May, 14/15, 2018
Heilbronn, Germany

The conference centers on interdisciplinary knowledge regarding gender 
and IT. It is part of the research project "Gender. Knowledge. 
Informatics. Network for Research Transfer of Interdisciplinary 
Knowledge regarding Gender and IT (GEWINN)".

Promoting gender perspectives in the digital revolution is still an 
ongoing major challenge. What are promising and innovative interventions 
and where are the areas of interest? How can researchers and 
practitioners cooperate to prevent troublesome gendering in IT? How can 
the mutual exchange of gender knowledge and IT expertise be made 
effective? This conference looks for inter- and transdisciplinary 
approaches to consider gender in shaping and creating digital change. 
Researchers in HCI and design research, science and technology studies, 
gender studies, computer science, and related fields from universities, 
research facilities as well as research departments of companies. The 
main goal is to fill the gap between theory and practice and to share 
and transfer research in the following gender related topics:

  * Organizational Culture in IT
  * Gender and VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity)
  * Agile Methods and Gender Equality
  * Ubiquitous Computing
  * De-Gendering IT
  * DevOps und Gender
  * Gender-sensitive IT-Design
  * Experience Design
  * Gender & HCI
  * Gender and Diversity in Computer Science
  * Gender Approaches in IT projects

The conference languages will be English and German. All submissions 
will be blind-reviewed. Authors should present their work at the
