Call for papers

The Interfaces and Human Computer Interaction (IHCI) 2015 conference aims to address the main issues of concern within Interface Culture and Design with a particular emphasis on the affective aspects of design, development and implementation of interfaces and the generational implications for design of human and technology interaction.

This conference aims to explore and discuss innovative studies of technology and its application in interfaces and welcomes research in progress, case studies, practical demonstrations and workshops in addition to the traditional submission categories.

This conference aims to cover both technological as well as non-technological issues related to these developments. Main tracks have been identified (see below).
