You are hereby invited to attend INTERACT 2013, the 14th IFIP TC13
Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, scheduled to take place in
Cape Town, South Africa, from 2-6 September 2013.

Registrations are now open for the Main Conference and the associated
Workshops and Tutorials.

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,
the Conference will address new and emerging HCI disciplines, bridging
cultural differences, and tackling important social problems. INTERACT 2013
provides a forum for both practitioners and researchers to discuss all aspects
of HCI.

Although submission to the main conference is now closed, there is still an opportunity to take part by submitting a contribution to any of the 14

Workshops that will take place during INTERACT 2013.

On the other hand, you can simply decide to attend, enjoy some of the
hundreds of presentations that will be made, the exhibits, make new
connections or meet up with colleagues from other countries, whilst all
along soaking up the amazing vibe of Cape Town.

For more details on the Workshops and how to make your submission, or
on how to register for the conference, please see the INTERACT Conference
