The field of human-computer interaction (HCI) has grown tremendously as computing devices have found a wide variety of applications in various domains, and reached the hands of a wide variety of users. HCI has attracted many researchers and practitioners from several disciplines including psychology, computer science, ergonomics, library science, and design. Today, it is difficult to keep track of everything that is happening in the field.
In this track, we are looking for reviews of the current knowledge of a topic related to HCI. A submission to this track could review a domain (such as healthcare, finance, education, empowerment, socialisation, entertainment etc.), a group of users (such as school children, retired elderly, illiterate, fishermen, tourists, HIV patients etc.) or a new technology that could impact future directions in HCI (such as multi-touch screens, electrical batteries, speech recognition, speech synthesis, optical character recognition, handwriting recognition, face recognition, brain-computer interaction etc.). A review paper is expected to include a thorough and systematic review of literature, including prior review papers. In addition to summarising important work and current trends in the topic, a submission is expected to clearly link issues in the topic to potential implications for HCI; and uniquely connect the ideas that were, so far, unconnected. It could extrapolate trends to make informed predictions, highlight unsolved problems and / or identify directions of future research.
Both abstracts and papers must be 'blinded' for the review process i.e. reference to authors or their organisation must be removed (though authors may refer to their own past work, where necessary, without making an explicit disclosure). All submissions must be original and unpublished elsewhere and the authors should own copyright of all material that they present. A submission could be under review somewhere at the time of review of IHCI 2012, but if it was to be accepted in both places, the authors will need to decide which of the two events they would like to finally submit to.
Papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed on the basis of the quality
of writing, coverage of current knowledge, and the uniqueness of the
new point of view.
Abstracts accepted till November 15
Papers accepted till November 30
