SouthCHI 2013


International Conference on Human Factors in Computing & Informatics
(SouthCHI 2013)

July 1 – 3, 2013 in Maribor, Slovenia, Europe, European Capital of Culture

Organized by University of  Maribor
in cooperation with ACM Slovenia and IEEE


The field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) has been extremely
successful in the last thirty years, changing computing to the benefit
of end users. Advanced mobile, ubiquitous and pervasive computing have
dramatically changed the way we interact with information, making human
factors an essential part of computer science and informatics in all
areas of our daily life. As a complement to the successful NordiCHI
series of conferences, which take place in the even years in Northern
Europe, SouthCHI, a new to-be-launched series of conferences focusing on
every aspect of HCI and addressing participants mainly from Southern
Europe, starts with its first issue in July 2013. Like NordiCHI,
SouthCHI will also be a biannual event, being organized in the odd
years, and will visit South European countries.
The venue of SouthCHI 2013 is Maribor, Slovenia, a city located just 40
miles south of Graz, Austria. Maribor is the European Capital of Culture
2012, with the cultural capital project going until the end of June
2013, hence SouthCHI will be its very final celebration. In this
occasion, South CHI will be also supported by ACM Slovenia and Slovenian
Chapter of IEEE Education Society.

SouthCHI accepts papers describing results of original research
performed in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), which
emphasize new developments. Papers should present significant
contributions to research and practice in all areas of Human-Computer
Interaction. Authors are invited to submit complete papers which are
neither published nor under review elsewhere. The specific topics
embraced by the conference include, but are not limited to, the
following ones:

– all aspects of Human Factors, Human-Computer Interaction and
Usability Engineering and
– Media Communication.

Accepted submissions, which are to be presented at the conference,
encompass the following categories: full papers, short papers, posters,
demos, videos and papers for the doctoral consortium. Suggestions
regarding demonstrations, videos and workshop are welcome, as well as
organization of special sessions.

All submissions will be reviewed by at least three independent
reviewers from SouthCHI programme committee and selected reviewers.
Accepted contributions will be printed in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) Series published by Springer
( and indexed in Thomson Reuters
