In the last years, a myriad of notions stemming from the sciences have been used in an incorrect way for mercantilist purposes. We have an example in the wide context of the user experience design, human-robot interaction, human-computer interaction, human-computer communication, human-computer interfaces, etc. with the notion of interdisciplinarity when in fact there are cases in which we should speak of transdisciplinarity or multidisciplinarity. Evidently three notions which are not synonymous between themselves. However, where the economic factor prevails over the scientific knowledge, all of this is possible.
This vision and/or modus operandi tolerates a set of errors in the formal and factual sciences which may seriously affect the future of computer science, robotics, the interfaces and the users of the future interactive systems and the hardware. This is one of the reasons why we have decided to carry out this conference on a yearly basis. It is a meeting for the exchange of knowledge and experiences tending to draw reliable lines of research and of constant work for the immediate future, as well as in the mid and long term.
