Abstract We propose a symposium to foster research on inclusive and
equitable ubiquitous computing in Latin America (LATAM). The meeting is
inspired by the ACM SIGCHI Across Borders Initiative, and the 1st CSCW@LatAm
Research Catalyst Workshop. We aim to: 1) discuss opportunities and
challenges of defining and accomplishing inclusive and equitable ubiquitous
computing centered on LATAM; 2) collaboratively mentor emerging related
projects focused on LATAM; 3) create a space that encourages cross-country
collaborations to address together common research challenges, whilst also
strengthening the links among all the members, regardless of their level of
expertise in the field; and, 4) provide a forum for dialogue between local
communities in Latin America (e.g., educational and health workers, NGOs)
and UbiComp researchers, with the aim of identifying pathways for
codesign-focused collaborations between diverse groups of stakeholders on
problems of public interest.
