Call for Papers


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.


We also welcome contributions that include, but are not limited to, any of the following topics of interest:

  • Accessibility & Universal Access
  • Case studies
  • Collaboration, groupware and social networks
  • Context-aware systems
  • Ethnographical and field studies
  • Evaluation methods and frameworks
  • Evaluation and usability
  • Group interaction and mobility
  • Human-centred design practices, tools and methods
  • HCI Theory and Practice
  • Information visualization and presentation techniques
  • Novel user interfaces, interaction techniques and technologies
  • Mobile, Ambient, Augmented or Tangible HCI
  • Multimodal interaction and interfaces
  • Multi-cultural interaction
  • Ubiquitous, pervasive, and mobile interaction
  • User-centred design
  • Usability investigation and evaluation
  • Wearable computing, smart clothes, new devices and sensors
