Maria Francesca Costabile is full professor at the Computer Science Department of the University of Bari, Italy, where she teaches human-computer interaction and other courses for the computer science curriculum. Formerly, she worked as assistant professor at the University of Calabria, Italy from 1981 to 1988, and as associate professor at the University of Bari from 1989 to 1999. She is currently the coordinator of the Computer Science Curriculum of the University of Bari at Brindisi.

She has been visiting scientist in several foreign universities, including Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NY, USA; University of Munster, Germany; University of Bonn, Germany; University of Houston, TX, USA; Rutgers University, NJ, USA; University of Pittsburgh, PA, USA.
Her research interests were initially in image analysis, segmentation of time-varying images, shape matching, computer vision. Her current research interests are in human-computer interaction, interaction design, mobile systems, usability engineering, information visualization, visual analytics, end-user development. Cultural heritage is one of the main application domains currently being investigated. She has published over one hundred fifty papers in scientific journals, books and proceedings of international conferences on the above topics, and edited seven books, published by ACM Press and Springer.
Prof. Costabile is regularly in program committees of international conferences and workshops. She is in the Steering Committee of the Advanced Visual Interfaces Conference (AVI), organized every two years in cooperation with ACM SIGCHI. She is in the Steering Committee of Visual Languages and Human Centric Computing Conference, organized every year in cooperation with IEEE. She has been Program Co-Chair of CHI 2008, the most important international conference on HCI, Program Co-Chair of Interact 2005 and Program Chair of AVI 2004. She is General Co-Chair of the third International Symposium on End-User Development (IS-EUD 2011) that will be in Torre Canne (Brindisi), Italy in June 2011.

She is senior member of IEEE and member of ACM; she is a founding member of the Italian Chapter of ACM SIGCHI, and served as Chair from 1996 to 2000.
