Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is an interdisciplinary area that focuses on the interplay among humans, information, technologies, and tasks. It addresses the design, evaluation, adoption, and use of information technology, with a focus on improved user performance and experience. HCI can be examined from an individual, organizational, managerial, psychological, social, or cultural perspective.

Submissions reflecting a breadth of research traditions and approaches and addressing new and emerging issues in the HCI field are highly encouraged. For example, a post-PC era characterized by multi-touch, direct manipulation interfaces, user-centric design and the impact on the user experience provide new challenges for HCI research and novel manifestations of HCI phenomena. We particularly welcome controversial pieces that challenge extant theories, models, assumptions, and practices.

Topics of Interests

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Aesthetic and affective computing
  • Cognitive neuroscience for HCI
  • Design and evaluation of end-user computing in work versus non-work environment, and in developing versus developed economies
  • HCI and related interface design issues with new devices and applications, such as smartphones, social networking sites, M-commerce, and pervasive computing
  • Human information seeking behavior on the digital platforms
  • Human-centeredness and user-centeredness in technology design, development and use
  • Impact of interfaces on attitudes, behavior, performance, perception, learning, and productivity
  • Interface for information visualization and analytics
  • Interfaces for secure Web and deception detection
  • Interfaces for wide variety of PC-based, web-based and mobile-based applications for communication, social interactions, and commercial exchanges
  • Interfaces that facilitate relationship building between human and technological artifacts
  • Novel HCI theories, techniques, and methodologies
  • Personalization and adaptive interfaces
  • Psychological, social and cultural aspects of HCI
  • Usability engineering, metrics, and methods for user interface assessment
