INTERACT 2013 : 14th IFIP TC13 Conference on Human-Computer Interaction
Conference Series : International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction
Call For Papers
INTERACT 2013 - The 14th IFIP TC13 Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, Cape Town, South Africa, 2-6 September 2013.
INTERACT 2013 solicits submissions in a broad range of categories, addressing all aspects of Human-Computer Interaction. The conference theme, “Designing for Diversity”, recognizes the interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and intercultural spirit of human-computer interaction (HCI) research. The conference welcomes research that acknowledges diverse disciplines, abilities, cultures and societies, addressing both the technical and social aspects of HCI. Within the broad umbrella of HCI, we seek high quality contributions opening new and emerging HCI disciplines, bridging cultural differences, and tackling important social problems.
INTERACT 2013 provides a forum for practitioners and researchers to discuss all aspects of HCI, but special consideration will be given to papers taking cognisance of the theme of the conference, ‘Designing for Diversity’.
INTERACT 2013 is an international conference and all submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts. English is the official conference language: all submissions must therefore be written in English. The style of English should be suitable for a global audience of non-native English speakers, using good structure and layout to help the readers navigate. Do not use convoluted English (gobbledygook) and avoid the use of idioms.
The first submission deadline, for full research papers, is 8 January 2013 (abstracts), 15 January 2013 (full papers).
Suggested topics for contributions are (but not limited to):
Diversity, inclusivity and sustainability
