    The paper entitled Towards a framework for gamification design on crowdsourcing systems: The G.A.M.E. Approach.was accepted on the 12th International Conference on Information Technology : New Generations (ITNG 2015). The event will be held in April 13-15, 2015, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

    This paper is a result of the work being done by the student from the Master’s degree Program on Computer Science at UFBA, Jailson Brito, advised by Prof. Vaninha Vieira and Dr. Adolfo Duran. This work is part of the projects “Models, Processes and Tools for the Development of Context-Sensitive Systems” and “An Intelligent, Ubiquitous and Context Sensitive Public Transportation System”.

    The paper presents G.A.M.E., a conceptual framework to guide the design of gamification in crowdsourcing- based systems. The framework provides a flexible step-by-step guideline that combines knowledge from software engineering, collaborative systems, game design and interaction design. The approach was tested on two applications related to intelligent public transportation: the Wikibus and the Ubibus-Cars.

  • INES at SBSC 2011, Paraty-RJ

    Publicado em September 18th, 2011Publications

    The INES sub-project “An Intelligent, Ubiquitous and Context Sensitive Public Transportation System” had two papers (a full paper and a short paper) accepted for publication in the VIII Brazilian Symposium on Collaborative Systems (Simpósio Brasileiro de Sistemas Colaborativos - SBSC).
    SBSC will occur in October 5th - 7th in Paraty/RJ.

    The full paper presents the results of a survey conducted with public transportation users which investigates how collaborative systems based on social networks and collective intelligence can support sharing information with the passengers. The results show that there is a scarcity of ways to obtain real-time information related to public transportation and that the use of social network applications and collective intelligence is an interesting way to share and obtain this kind of information. This is a result of collaboration among researchers of UTFPR-Campo Mourão and UFBA.
    The short paper proposes a social network application that enables users to create routes on maps that can be edited collaboratively. This paper is part of the graduation work of a UTFPR-Campo Mourão student.

  • INES Context Group has a paper in the UMedia’2011, Sao Paulo/Brasil

    Publicado em May 16th, 2011Publications

    The paper entitled Towards an Ubiquitous and Context Sensitive Public Transportation Systemwas accepted on the 4th International Conference on Ubi-Media Computing (U-Media 2011). This paper is a result of the work being done by the researchers of the project “Models, Processes and Tools for the Development of Context-Sensitive Systems” that resulted in the project accepted in the Grand Challenges for Computer Science call (2010) see list here.

    The paper presents UbiBus, a proposal for a ubiquitous, context-sensitive public transportation system that aims to specify and implement technological solutions (e.g. models, algorithms and tools) to ease the access to information about public transportations. It considers the mobility of people and vehicles and the occurrence of dynamic factors that could affect the transportation and provide passengers with advanced information about the available public transportation in a city.
