Scope and Topics
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. The 1st IFIP Human-Computer Interaction 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 symposium will include, but is not limited to, the following topics:
- Methodologies for user-centred system design
- Human-Work Interaction Design
- User interface engineering
- Accessibility and disability
- Human error, safety and system development
- Education in HCI
- HCI in Ubiquitous Environments
- Cultural differences in HCI
- Ambient intelligent environments
- Human-computer dialogue system
Papers presenting original research in conference topics are being sought. A full paper (8 to 12 pages) or short paper (4 pages) written in English should be sent by 15 February 2008.
Proceedings of IFIP HCIS 2008 will be published by Springer Science and Business Media (SSBM). More information can be found in due course at http://www.wcc2008.org. (e.g. some hints)
It is strongly recommended that papers use the templates provided by Springer.
Please submit a pdf-version and additionally a doc-file. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality of the work. Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection via e-mail by 26 March 2008. Full versions of accepted papers (camera-ready) must be written in English, and will be due by 7 April 2008.
