14th IFIP TC13 Conference on Human-Computer Interaction

Cape Town, South Africa,

INTERACT 2013 solicits submissions addressing all aspects of
human-computer interaction.

The conference theme, “Designing for Diversity”, recognizes the
interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and intercultural spirit of
human-computer interaction (HCI) research and practice. The conference
welcomes research and reports of practice that acknowledges diverse
disciplines, abilities, cultures and societies, and that address both
the technical and social aspects of HCI. Within the broad umbrella of
HCI, we seek high quality contributions addressing new and emerging HCI
disciplines, bridging cultural differences, and tackling important
social problems.

INTERACT 2013 provides a forum for practitioners and researchers to
discuss all aspects of HCI, but special consideration will be given to
papers taking account of the conference theme ‘Designing for Diversity’.

The first submission deadline, for full research papers, is 8 January
2013 (abstracts), 15 January 2013 (full papers).

convenience, a template for Microsoft Word (.doc and .docx) is provided
for direct downloading at:

The following tracks have a double-blind review process and require
anonymous submissions. For these tracks, the versions submitted for
review must be uploaded in .PDF format with all author details removed:

· Full research papers

· Short research papers

· Interactive posters

· Industrial programme

· Demonstrations and interactive experiences.

The following tracks have a single-blind review process and require the
author names on the submissions. For these tracks, the versions
submitted for review must be uploaded in .PDF format with all author
details included:

· Special interest groups (SIGs)

· Panels

· Doctoral consortium

· Workshops

· Tutorials.

Any questions regarding the formatting and uploading of submissions
should be directed to:
