HCII 2023 (Hybrid): Conference Details

HCII 2023 will be held under the auspices of 21 distinguished international boards as a rich ‘hybrid’ event.

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).

The Conference Proceedings are published by Springer in a multi-volume set. The first 47 volumes of the set will appear before the conference and will be updated to include the "Late Breaking Work" volumes, to be published after the conference. Papers appear in the LNCS and LNAI series, while poster extended abstracts are 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.

Registration: As HCII2023 will run as a ‘hybrid’ conference, participants during their on-line registration process, have the option to select their preferred attendance method (‘in-person’ or ‘virtual’). Detailed information about registration is available through the Conference website.

The HCII2023 Program for Student Volunteers gives College and University full time students from around the world the opportunity to attend ‘in-person’ and contribute to one of the most prestigious conferences in the field of computing and HCI.
The Student Volunteer role involves a range of duties to be performed ‘in-person’, including, but not limited to: assisting in the running of hybrid sessions; assisting the Conference Secretariat team; assisting Conference participants; contributing to the overall smooth running of the Conference functions. Late applications through the Conference Management System (CMS) are welcome and will be placed in the reserve list to be considered in the order in which they are received.

HCII 2023: Design Café

The ‘HCII Design Café’ is a new interactive satellite event to be held in person for the first time during the HCII2023 conference. The goal is to provide a forum for (re)thinking and discussing HCI issues in the context of broader topics relevant to society and the economy. Inspired by the ‘World Café method’, the HCII Design Café is based on a proven valuable participatory scheme for engaging on a specific topic, in a moderated small-group setting, with interested stakeholders that come from different professions in related fields. The aim is to stimulate open dialogue, constructive deliberations, and informal but meaningful collaboration, to empower creativity and inspiration in a casual atmosphere, and to promote innovative approaches for transforming ideas into practice. The focus of the HCII Design Café will be on two major challenges:

  1. Human-Environment Interactions as these are shaped in contemporary and future digitized working and living environments. This topic is addressed in the White Paper “Seven HCI Grand Challenges” (prepared by a group of 32 international experts involved in the community of the HCII Conference series), which arise in the emerging landscape of rapid technological evolution toward more intelligent interactive technologies.
  2. Sustainable and Resilient Communities facing climate issues and disrupting activities and events with global impact. This topic is addressed in 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. In 2030 this UN agenda should have become reality.

The HCII 2023 Design Café is conceived, coordinated, and moderated by Christine Riedmann-Streitz (MarkenFactory GmbH, Germany) and it will feature a keynote speech by Norbert Streitz (Smart Future Initiative, Germany). Discussions at the HCII 2023 Design Café Tables will be hosted by: Aaron Marcus (Aaron Marcus and Associates, USA), Elizabeth Rosenzweig (Brandeis University, USA), Pei-Luen Patrick Rau (Tsinghua University, P.R. China), and George Margetis, Margherita Antona and Stavroula Ntoa (FORTH-ICS, Greece).

The call for participation is available through the conference website. The results of the HCII2023 Design Café will be published.

For the agenda and the registration requirements, please also have a look at the conference website.

HCII 2023: About Copenhagen, capital and largest city of Denmark

Copenhagen, with a population of more than 1.3 million in the wider urban area, is regularly top ranked among European cities for quality of life. The Danish capital is one of the world’s greenest, cleanest and most sustainable urban centers. By having buses and metro running frequently and around the clock and with more than a third of the population using cycling as their main transportation for work, Copenhagen is compact, accessible and a very easy place to explore.

As one of Europe’s oldest capitals, hosting the world’s oldest monarchy, Copenhagen is rich in historical buildings and sights, like the Amalienborg Palace, to get a taste of royal life, the Kronborg Castle, known worldwide as Hamlet's and Shakespeare's castle, the Rosenborg Castle in the King’s Garden, Tivoli Gardens in the heart of the city and many more. In addition, many museums offer a wide range of exhibitions including the Denmark's National Museum, ranging from Stone Age to modern history, the National Gallery of Denmark and the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek.
