Dublin City University

2nd & 3rd Sept 2010





2010 will mark the fourth year of the of the Irish Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Conference, which will take place at Dublin City University on September 2nd & 3rd 2010. iHCI 2010 will follow on from the great success of the past three conference events, 2009 at Trinity College Dublin, 2008 at the University College Cork and 2007 in the University of Limerick.

The Irish HCI community has continued to grow over the past number of years and has seen much support through the past iHCI conferences, the establishments of the ACM SIGCHI chapter and regular meetings of the Dublin, and more recently, the Limerick Interaction Design Association (IxDA). This coupled with the diversity in the topics and areas that researchers, students and practitioners in Ireland are operating in, makes it a very exciting time for the community.

To reflect both the growth of the Irish HCI community, and the broad range of research being conducted within Ireland, the theme of this year's conference will be 'Crossing Boundaries'. We welcome submissions exploring, discussing or challenging the many boundaries within our community today: the traditional boundaries between academia and industry; the physical boundaries which influence our work; the boundaries between creativity and code; the boundaries between research and real-world use; and the boundaries between 'traditional' desktop systems and mobile, tangible, or ambient interaction; and pushing boundaries into novel or challenging spaces. More information can be found in the conference's Call for Papers, available in the authors section.

The two-day program will build from the very successful format of 2009 and seeks to provide a national forum through which HCI researchers, practitioners and industry professionals in Ireland can meet, present and discuss their ongoing work. The iHCI 2010 Programme will follow a similar format to the previous conferences and will include an Industry Session (Co-Ordinated by the IxDA Dublin and Limerick Groups), a Student Forum, and a Poster and Demos Showcase along with peer-reviewed short and full paper presentations. We are also delighted to welcome Professor Richard Harper (Microsoft Research) to deliver the opening keynote address.

iHCI 2010 has received many excellent submissions this year and the full program for the 2-day event will be shortly announced. Unfortunately, we could only accept a limited number of full and short paper submissions. However, we wish this year’s conference to be as inclusive as possible. Therefore, we are extending an invitation to many of authors of unsuccessful full and short paper submissions to showcase their work during the Poster Session. We hope this will allow as many as possible an opportunity to present their work and to contribute to the exciting discussion at iHCI 2010.

iHCI 2010 will be held in the School of Nursing / Health Sciences Building in Dublin City University on September 2nd & 3rd 2010. It is kindly supported by both Dublin City University and CLARITY: Centre for Sensor Web Technologies. iHCI 2010 is a local chapter activity of SIGCHI Ireland.

The proceedings are available to download in pdf - 7.84megs.
