Call for papers


Contributions can address any topic related to the HCI discipline, in a broad sense, considering its multidisciplinary nature. Thus, contributions on user experience, accessibility, virtual and augmented reality, human-robot interaction, hardware for interaction, interactive art, HCI psychology, HCI teaching, HCI and rehabilitation, etc. will be welcome.

A special session Engendering Technologies will be organized and papers can be submitted specifically for this session. This session aims to explore equal participation in education, design, production and use of technology, as well as to encourage more inclusive research, innovation and product development.


Different modalities of participation in the congress have been defined, so that any researcher can find a way to contribute and attend the congress.

Long articles. Up to 8 pages. These are articles that describe previously unpublished original work and provide significant research results.

Short articles. Up to 4 pages. These are articles that describe work in progress, with intermediate results and that contribute to well-founded research.

Relevant articles already published. Up to 2 pages. A review of an article published by the authors in an impact journal may be submitted for dissemination among the congress attendees.

Presentations of research groups or projects. Up to 2 pages. Through this modality, a research group working in one of the areas covered by the congress can make a presentation of their work as a group, describing activities, projects and future plans, or of a specific research project they are carrying out or have just completed.

Demonstrations. A demonstration of a tool, hardware, interactive artwork or similar may contribute to the conference. This demonstration will have a brief review associated with it (up to 2 pages).
