Gender and culture are two important social characteristics. Prior research has demonstrated that both of them have great impacts on users’ interaction with ICT. However, most studies examined these two factors in isolation. In this panel, we will identify raise broad awareness of the situations related to the role of culture in gender and ICT interaction, to identify some of the issues and challenges, to brainstorm potential research directions, and to identify potential interventions to narrow the gender gap in ICT interaction by examining situations in difference cultures.
