Call For Participation (CfP)

You are invited to participate in HCI 2012, which will be held in the UKs second city, Birmingham.

Some History

HCI 2012 is the 26th Annual Conference of the Specialist HCI group of the BCS, the BCS Interaction SG. Since its establishment in 1985, the conference has become the leading annual HCI conference in Europe. As well as being a leading venue for dissemination, the conference has a history of nurturing research careers- many of the leading HCI researchers published their early papers here and it is recognised for helping students and new academics as much as being a leading forum for established researchers. We want to carry on this well-established tradition into 2012.

Conference Theme
This year we have returned to the founding theme of the conference: People and Computers. This is to encapsulate and highlight the growing diversity of our field of HCI in one event. Technology is now common in all walks of life and HCI practitioners and researchers have more areas of impact than ever before. We want the conference to reflect this growing importance and diversity.

The Venue
The City of Birmingham has undergone a transformation over the past few decades. It now boasts more canals than Venice, a plethora of riverside restaurants, bars and cafes, a range of cuisine from around the world, coupled with a compact city vibe. Birmingham is easily accessible by road, rail (Birmingham New Street, Snow Hill and Moor Street Stations) and air (Birmingham International Airport). It is also well located for extending your stay, whether you plan a city break to explore the centre, or a short trip into the countryside to Stratford-upon-Avon, Wales, the Peak District, or the rolling Chilterns and Oxfordshire.

The main conference will be held at the IET at Austin Court, a purpose-built facility in the centre of town within walking distance of major hotels, restaurants, bars and nightlife of the city.

Socially, the conference will build on its reputation for the liveliest, friendliest place to meet other HCI researchers. The conference dinner will be held at the Botanical Gardens, complete with outdoor spaces, tropical hothouses, exotic birds and beautiful parkland.

Submission Tracks

The conference will have usual tracks of high-quality research papers, written as either Full or Short papers. Full papers should be a maximum of 10 pages in length. These submissions should be of original work and should not have been previously published. Short papers should be a maximum of 6 pages and should be compact short pieces of original work. There is also a work-in-progress category. We strongly encourage participants to reflect the spirit of the track by submitting early-stage, surprising or incomplete results that may be of relevance and interest to the community. The submission dates for the tracks are below.

Following on from last year we have also included an alt-HCI track. This track is for work that highlights a more extreme, unusual and less mainstream side of HCI. The more alternative the work is, the better. We are looking for high quality contributions that might be highly contentious, using atypical methodologies, critical of established ideas or focused in an unconventional domain. If your work is alternative, controversial and interesting, then alt-HCI is the track for you.

The conference will also host a variety of workshops and a doctorial consortium. These will be held on the leafy campus of the University of Birmingham, in Edgbaston. A redbrick University and member of the Russell group, it offers a pleasant green environment.

Submissions

We encourage submissions that focus on human interaction with technology and computer systems. Whether your work is at the fundamental end of the spectrum (theory, design, or principle), or at the practical end (evaluation, product, or impact) we are interested in encouraging high-quality submissions to the conference.

Relevant topics areas include but are by no means limited to:
Persuasive Technology
Mobile Interactions
User Experience
Touchtable interactions
Affective Computing/Interactions
Usability Engineering
Accessibility
Child Computer Interaction
Interaction Design
UCD4D
Recommender Systems
Annotation
Brain Computer Interfaces
Technology and Culture
E-Government

All tracks will be peer reviewed by an international panel of leading researchers. Papers will be published in the BCS e-WIC repository and in the ACM Digital Library.

In keeping with the BCS HCI ethos, early career researchers are especially encouraged to submit to the main conference, whilst those still undertaking PhDs should consider applying for the doctoral consortium, a training and supportively critical forum to discuss your research in.

To recognise outstanding contributions to this years conference and to nurture the HCI researchers of tomorrow we will have best paper and best student paper awards, which will be judged by the reviewers and announced at the conference dinner.

HCI 2012 News and Views

We want to hear what are saying about HCI 2012. This year we have made twitter a major part of our website through the HCI 2012 Twitter Chatter banner. All tweets will be displayed on the site so people can see the communitys views, opinions and comments about HCI 2012.

The conference twitter feed is also the way to keep one step ahead with news about HCI 2012, just follow @hci2012. To share your tweets use the hashtag #hci2012uk.

Our website http://www.hci2012.org also has up to date information on submissions, venues and other relevant conference news.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Birmingham!
