Heloisa Candello is an interaction designer and a researcher at the IBM Research laboratory in Brazil. She has experience in leading and conducting design research activities to understand people’s contexts and motivations to use conversation technologies. She recently co-organized a related workshop at CSCW ’17 and CHI ’18, and previously published her research on UX with conversational systems at various HCI conferences.
Benjamin Cowan is an Assistant Professor at University College Dublin’s School of Information & Communication Studies. His research lies at the juncture between psychology, HCI and computer science in investigating how theoretical perspectives in human communication can be applied to understand phenomena in speech based humanmachine communication. He is the co-founder of the International Conference on Conversation User Interfaces (CUI) conference series and has run a number of workshops at CHI and Mobile HCI on designing speech and language technologies.
Cosmin Munteanu is an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Communication, Culture, Information, and Technology at University of Toronto Mississauga. His research includes speech and natural language interaction for mobile devices, mixed reality systems, learning technologies for marginalized users, and assistive technologies for older adults, and ethics in HCI research.
Joel E. Fischer is an Associate Professor at the School of Computer Science and member of the Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham. His practice-focused research in voice interaction has been published at CUI, CHI, and CSCW, and he has previously co-organised related workshops at CHI and CSCW.
Leigh Clark is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Information & Communication Studies at University College Dublin. His research examines the communicative aspects of user interactions with speech interfaces, how context impacts perceptions of computer speech and how linguistic theories can be implemented and redefined in speech-based HCI.
Stephan Schlögl is Associate Professor in the Dept. Management, Communication & IT at the MCI Management Center Innsbruck. His main research interest lies in humancomputer interaction, particularly focusing on conversational user interfaces and other types of AI supported interaction modalities. He is one of the general chairs for theCUI 2020 conference
Jaisie Sin is a graduate student at the Technologies for Aging Gracefully Lab and the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto, in Toronto, Canada. Her research focuses on older adults’ use of technology, in particular of speech-based interfaces, and inclusive design from the perspective of preventing digital marginalization.
Christine Murad is a graduate student at the Technologies for Aging Gracefully lab in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto. Her research looks at the usability and design of conversational voice interfaces, and exploring the development of different tools and resources to aid in intuitive and user-friendly conversational voice interaction. She recently co-organized a related workshop at CHI ’19.
María Inés Torres is Full Professor at UPV/EHU Univeridad del Pais Vasco and director of the SPIN RG Speech Interactive Research Group. Her research focuses on statistical approaches to deal with spoken dialog systems, aiming to learn from human interaction to generate artificial interaction. Furthermore, she and her group look at methods to identify emotions in speech. She is one of the general chairs for the CUI 2020 conference.
Stuart Reeves is Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the University of Nottingham, and is a member of the Mixed Reality Lab and Horizon. He recently held an EPSRC Fellowship investigating the connections between academic HCI research communities and the work of practitioners in UX/IxD/IA and other design professions (EP/K025848/1). He is also Co-I on EPSRC grant "From Human Data to Personal Experience" (EP/M02315X/1).
Martin Porcheron is a Research Fellow in the Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham. His work examines the use of new technologies such as conversational systems and the autonomous Internet of Things in multiparty settings like pubs and the home. He has recently coorganised workshops at MobileHCI ’16, CHI ’16 and ’18, CSCW ’16 and ’17 on topics such as collocated interaction and conversational interfaces and served as a Full Papers Chair for the inaugural CUI conference.
Chelsea M. Myers is a Digital Media PhD Candidate at Drexel University. Her research focuses on multimodal interaction, with a particular focus on voice user experience and adaptive techniques in CUI based interaction.
