HCII 2023 (Hybrid): Conference Details

HCI International 2023 invites you to participate and contribute through papers, posters, tutorials, workshops and a Student Design Competition to a major international forum for the dissemination and exchange of up-to-date scientific information on theoretical and applied areas of HCI.

Additionally, the Conference has a long-established tradition of inviting distinguished scientists and professionals in the broader HCI field to organize parallel sessions. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit their proposal upon invitation from a session organizer. The process is open until 3 February 2023, under the guidance of Parallel Session Organizers.

Other Important deadlines:

The first three days of the conference (23-25 July) will comprise virtual only parallel sessions for paper presentations with remote only participation and ‘in-person’ only satellite events (Tutorials and Workshops). The Opening Plenary Session (evening of 25 July) and the parallel sessions that will take place 26-28 July will run as hybrid events (i.e. allowing both 'in-person' and remote participation options for presenters and participants). You are encouraged to consult the Conference Program overview for information about the mode of operation for each part of the conference.

The best contributions will be awarded! The best paper of each of the HCII 2023 Thematic Areas / Affiliated Conferences will be presented with an award. The best poster extended abstract (in the form of a short research paper) will also receive an award.

The Student Design Competition gives to College and University students of all grades an opportunity to present their design idea, by submitting an abstract and a video clip (up to 5-minutes). Three awards will be presented, the GOLD ($1000), the SILVER ($500) and the BRONZE ($250). Proposals submission through the Conference Management System will open in January. HCII2023 will offer for the first time, a virtual training session to students aspiring to prepare quality video submissions (to be announced in a timely fashion in January).

The Conference Proceedings will be published by Springer in a multi-volume set. Papers will appear in the LNCS and LNAI series, while poster extended abstracts will be published in the CCIS series. All volumes will be available on-line through the SpringerLink Digital Library, readily accessible by subscribing libraries, and indexed by a number of services, including: CPCI, part of Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science; Scopus; EI Engineering Index; ACM Digital Library; Google Scholar; DBLP, etc.

The "HCI Medal for Societal Impact" was established in 2022 to be awarded to distinguished HCI academics, researchers, or professionals in recognition of the impact of their work in the field of HCI to society. The idea of the medal is to inspire younger generations towards accomplishments that leave a major footprint on society and foster well-being and eudemonia. The nomination originates from an international committee and the Medal will be conferred during the conference Opening Plenary Session, to be followed by the Keynote speech.

Exhibiting at the Conference is an ideal opportunity to display your products and services to an international audience of academics, researchers, professionals and users in the field of HCI. Detailed information about the HCII 2023 Exhibition will soon become available through the Conference website.

The HCII 2023 Program for Student Volunteers will soon become available through the Conference website. Full-time university students from around the world will have the opportunity to attend, contribute and benefit from actively participating to one of the prestigious conferences in the field of computing and HCI.

HCII 2023: Design Café

Inspired by the World Café method, the HCII2023 Design Café aims to provide a small-group forum for productive, critical discussions in a moderated face-to-face group situation and to identify innovative approaches for transferring ideas into practice.

The topics to be discussed will be informed, in part, by: (i) Selected findings of the White Paper “Seven HCI Grand Challenges” (prepared by a group of 32 experts involved in the community of the HCII Conference series during 2018-2019) which arise in the emerging landscape of rapid technological evolution towards more intelligent interactive technologies; this is coupled with the increased and widened societal needs, as well as the individual and collective expectations that HCI, as a discipline, is called upon to address. (ii) A selection from the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.

The HCII2023 Design Café will take place on Friday, 28 July 2023, 13:30 – 18:00 as an ‘in-person’ only event. Participation is open to registered conference participants as well as to interested non-registered to the conference individuals. The event will be of interest to professionals, academic / research staff, graduate students from universities and design schools, individuals working in design or R&D departments in industry, government institutions, service providers, etc. A registration fee of $75 is applicable for all participants. As the number of places is limited, applications will be treated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Detailed information about the HCII2023 Design Café will become available through the Conference website by February.
