HCIS 2008 is the first Human-Computer Interaction Symposium of IFIP TC 13

The Symposium attempts to bring the various fields together and will highlight the research and industrial importance of the Human-Computer Interaction area and its most recent breakthroughs on current applications.
This symposium will be a single track, with a good quality set of presentations and discussions of innovative concepts, advanced technology and applications.
The domain of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is a multidisciplinary, active and focal area of both research and industrial application. As the influence and use of computing capability grows, so does the recognition that computing systems will be required to conform to many other criteria than simply those of computing performance. The criteria of usability, acceptability, user satisfaction, accessibility and suitability for user and organisational needs are some of those which are particularly the province of experts in Human-Computer Interaction.
