Call for Full Papers

Authors who have not submitted abstract earlier can also submit the paper now!!

A paper is an archival publication of original research in the field of HCI. A paper must generate new knowledge, establish its validity rigorously and position itself with respect to the current work in the field. For example, a paper could propose a new theory, model a concept or describe a new technique. If you intend to describe an individual design project your contribution would usually not be suitable for a paper (unless it also does some of the above) – it would be suitable for a design case study. Also, full papers and short papers are expected to make an original contribution to research. If you are reviewing a domain, a technology or a group of users, your contribution will be more suitable as a review paper.

Papers will be peer-reviewed on the basis of the quality and originality of the theoretical knowledge, the rigour of validation and thoroughness of references to prior work. We invite your contributions relating to following thematic areas:
Thematic Areas:

  • Challenges of UX design in different business verticals
  • Unique case studies of UX design in the different business verticals such as insurance & banking, healthcare, education, media and entertainment, defense, government, etc.

  • Methodological issues of HCI when operating in practice
  • This thematic area will cover the constraints, gaps in the process, problems due to lack of awareness, resources, project planning affecting the activities related to user experience design, usability, interaction design, etc.

  • HCI for remote contexts (international outsourcing / global software development)
  • HCI in contexts of device diversity and immersive technologies
  • Interaction and user experience design for varied display sizes, modes of interactions, hand-held devices, virtual simulations

  • HCI contributions in social and economic development
  • This would cover the research focusing on application of HCI design for benefiting the underprivileged, unemployed, illiterate or low literacy populations.

  • HCI for products & services in emerging markets, including for mobile systems
  • HCI responses to a world in recession
  • Exploration of cost effective models and methods to optimize the resources without compromising on the HCI quality.

  • HCI in  Complex Industrial software Systems
  • Papers addressing usability in e.g. process and power industries that are managed by distributed control systems (DCS), industrial robots, and other automation products
