HCII 2015 : International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction
Call For Papers
HCI International 2015, jointly with the affiliated Conferences, which are held under one management and one registration, invite you to Los Angeles, California, USA, to participate and contribute to the international forum for the dissemination and exchange of up-to-date scientific information on theoretical, generic and applied areas of HCI, through the following modes of communication: Plenary / Keynote Presentation, Parallel Sessions, Poster Sessions, Tutorials and Exhibition.
Proposals for Participation
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by three independent referees from the International Program Boards.
Parallel Paper Presentations:
Paper proposals should include a statement of the objective and significance of the proposed presentation, a description of methods and a discussion of results:
papers in the theoretical category: dealing with models, concepts, and structures;
papers in the generic category: presenting research results of broad applicability; and
papers in the applied category: showing how the demands of particular application areas shape the way generic research is translated into practical innovation.
There are two different procedures for paper submission and selection in HCI International Conference series:
The regular process: Prospective authors submit extended abstracts (800 words) of papers in one of the Conference Thematic Areas. Following a peer-review process, a decision is communicated to the authors.
The review process of the HCI International Conference is not blind. The name and contact details of the author(s) that appear on the paper are given to the reviewers.
The abstract, which should be submitted for the review process, can be submitted in either DOC or PDF format, but no special formatting guidelines apply in this stage. References, tables and figures are acceptable in the abstract. References are in addition to the 800-words limit.
By invitation: The Conference has a long established tradition of inviting distinguished scientists and professionals in the broader HCI field to organize parallel sessions. Session organizers are responsible for inviting 6 or 7 prospective authors (academics, researchers and practitioners known in the field for their acknowledged work) to submit paper contributions. Session organizers are also responsible for organizing and carrying out the peer-review process either on an extended abstract or the full paper (it is up to them). It is also the responsibility of the session organizers to set up any intermediate deadlines with the authors in a way that would ensure that the camera-ready version (full papers, typically 10 pages, with minimum 8 pages long, maximum 12 pages long) of all session papers reach the Conference Organizers on time for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings. Therefore, the only hard deadline for invited parallel sessions is Friday, 20 February 2015
Camera-ready papers (full papers, typically 10 pages, with minimum 8 pages long, maximum 12 pages long) should be submitted in both DOC and PDF format. Formatting guidelines will become available through the Conference website at a later stage.
These sessions will accommodate the presentation of latebreaking scientific and professional news or work in progress. For the review process, an abstract of 300 words should be submitted, including the essence of the planned presentation.
The abstract, which should be submitted for the review process, can be submitted in either DOC or PDF format, but no special formatting guidelines apply in this stage. References, tables and figures are acceptable in the abstract. The 300-words limit excludes references.
The camera-ready poster papers shall have typically 5 pages (at least 4 and at maximum 6 pages) and must be written in the form of self-contained short research papers. They should be submitted in both DOC and PDF format. Formatting guidelines will become available through the Conference website at a later stage.
Half-day and full-day Tutorials will be offered at introductory, intermediate and advanced levels covering the entire spectrum of the topics of the Conference. For the review process, an abstract of 300 words should be submitted, including the objective, content and target audience.
Registration Regulation: For presentation at the Conference and publication in the Proceedings of HCI International 2014, a unique registration of one (co-)author per paper / poster is required by:
20 February 2015, for papers
2 April 2015, for extended poster abstracts
Individuals may appear as co–authors in several papers / posters, but multiple registrations per author / participant and multiple submissions of single-authored papers / posters will not be accepted.
The Conference will start with three days of Tutorials (2-4 August). Parallel Sessions, Poster Sessions and the Exhibition will be held during the last three days (5-7 August) of the Conference.
