The Semiotic Engineering Research Group (SERG) is devoted to interdisciplinary research in Human‐Computer Interaction (HCI), focusing on Semiotics. This discipline studies processes of signification (how signs are produced, encoded and used in culture) and communication (how people use signs to act in the world). SERG is where Semiotic Engineering, the first full‐ fledged semiotic theory of HCI, has been created. It has gained increased interest in recent years because of the new kinds of communication and participation brought about by the Web 2.0. See, for example, Don Norman’s article on Semiotic Engineering.  

In Scalable Game Design Brasil, we investigate theoretical issues mainly related to the following topics:  

  • Computing Literacy (or folk theories of computing),  
  • End User Programming Languages,  
  • Signification and Communication with Hybrid Representational Systems and
  • Cultural Dimensions in Computing.
