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)
