CLIHC 2015 : 7th Latin American Conference on Human Computer Interaction
Call For Papers
7th Latin American Conference on Human Computer Interaction
November 18 – 21, 2015
The Latin American Conference on Human Computer Interaction (CLIHC) aims to provide a premier forum that brings together Latin American and International HCI communities to discuss and exchange ideas, methods, approaches and techniques for designing interactive user experiences. This conference has its origin in Rio de Janeiro 2003 (Brazil), following editions in Cuernavaca 2005 (Mexico), Rio de Janeiro 2007 (Brazil), Merida 2009 (Mexico), Porto de Galinhas 2011 (Brazil), and Guanacaste 2013 (Costa Rica). In consonance with previous editions, we believe that in the field of HCI we must come to a technology that not only can be used and appreciated by as many people as possible, but that also promotes intercultural exchange and cooperation between people with different backgrounds and needs.
Paper submission and publication
CLIHC invites high quality contributions describing significant, original, and unpublished results for submission in the following categories:
Full papers: original contributions that have not previously been published in another forum, nor be subject to review for other conferences or publications. Contributions should include academic research results of high quality, case studies or experiences that provide new evidence about the research or application regarding the topics of the conference. Full papers must not exceed 8 pages (including figures, tables, references, and appendices).
Short papers: work in progress with partial but significant results. Submissions must contain an original contribution that has not previously been published in another forum, nor be subject to review for other conferences or publications. Short papers must not exceed 4 pages (including figures, tables, references, and appendices).
Posters: work in progress that is exhibited in a poster session during the conference, providing an interaction opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their new and innovative work. Authors must submit a manuscript written in English, Spanish or Portuguese that must not exceed 2 pages.
Doctoral Consortium: PhD students are invited to present the topic and progress of their research in order to obtain feedback from a panel of experts. Papers for doctoral consortium could be written in English, Spanish or Portuguese and must not exceed 2 pages.
Design competition: an opportunity for students to participate through a practical activity, create an exhibition space of solutions to a problem socially relevant, and foster greater interaction between industry representatives and students. Participants can be students or professionals in groups of up to 4 participants with 1 supervisor. Each team must submit a presentation in Portuguese, Spanish or English in PDF format with a maximum of 15 slides.
All contributions will be peer-reviewed by at least two PC members on the basis of technical quality, relevance, originality, significance and clarity.
Authors submitting a paper must:
* Follow the official ACM Proceedings Format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) and
* Submit their paper using the EasyChair platform (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=clihc2015).
Accepted full and short papers written in English will be included in the conference proceedings and submitted for publication in the DL of the ACM (TBC). We are also exploring alternatives so that authors of selected outstanding papers are invited to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration of publication in an international journal.
