Dr. Cristian Rusu
Cristian Rusu is an Associate Professor at Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaiso (School of Informatics Engineering), Chile (since 2002) and at North University of Baia Mare, Romania (since 1995). He is Bachelor in Electronic Engineering (1984) and PhD in Applied Informatics (2002) from Technical University of Cluj - Napoca (Romania). Member of the Romanian Chapter of ACM-SIGCHI, he worked in several software companies and research institutes in Romania, then he fully dedicated to academia since 1999.
For the first time in Chile, he introduced Human - Computer Interaction as compulsory course at graduate level in 2006, when he also opened two Usability Labs. He initiated and is currently leading a research group in Human - Computer Interaction (”UseCV”), supervising research projects mainly on Usability and Usability related topics. From “UseCV” research group, he performs usability studies for industry and organizations.
He serves in editorial boards and conference program committees and disseminates Usability’s importance, in Chile and Latin America.

Toni Granollers i Saltiveri
Bachelor in Computer Science from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (1988) and Ph.D. in Computer Science, specializing in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Lleida (2004).
After several years working in diverse companies as a computer programmer and Project’s Manager, he is now fully involved in teaching and research activities in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).
He is currently professor of Computer Science and Industrial Engineering Department at University of Lleida and director of the Research Group on Human-Computer Interaction and Data Integration (GRIHO) of the same university.
As a teacher he is involved in the first Spanish-speaking HCI Master and in Interfaces Design related subjects in other universities and private companies.
Board member of the HCI Spanish association AIPO and of the ACM-SIGCHI spanish chapter, CHISPA.
From GRIHO research group, he also leads and collaborates within knowledge and technology transfer to industry projects.
Finally, he is co-author of the book “Diseño de sistemas interactivos centrados en el usuario” published by UOC, 2004.

Fabio Paternò

Fabio Paternò is Research Director and Head of the Laboratory on Human Interfaces in Information Systems (HIIS) at ISTI-CNR. His main research interests are in the area of user interface software and technologies. In recent years he has been working on the design of tools whose main purpose is to support designers of multi-device, multi-modal interactive applications starting with user interface logical descriptions. A considerable amount of work has also been dedicated to mobile guides, various solutions for such guides have been designed, some in collaboration
with local museums, which exploit various technologies for location awareness and multimodal interaction. He also turned his attention to how to integrate usability and accessibility issues, in particular for blind users. His current research interests include Ubiquitous Interactive Systems, Methods and Tools for Multimodal User Interface Design and Evaluation, Accessibility, User Interfaces for Applications based on Web Services, Model-Based Design of Interactive Systems, End-User Development. He has published over one hundred-eighty papers in refereed international conferences or journals. He is the author of the book on Model-Based Design and Evaluation of Interactive Applications. He has been the scientific coordinator of five EU projects (MEFISTO, GUITARE, EUD-Net, CAMELEON, OPEN) and one of the main investigators in several others (such as ADVISES, MAUSE, SIMILAR, SERVFACE). He has been member of the Programme Committee of the main international HCI conferences, including Papers Co-Chair of the ACM CHI 2000 conference, IFIP INTERACT 2003 and IFIP INTERACT 2005. He chaired the fourth Symposium on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices (September 2002). Further information about the HIIS Lab projects and tools can be found at http://giove.isti.cnr.it/.
