HCII 2022: Thank you for your participation in the virtual event

HCI International 2022, the 24th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, was held from 26 June to 1 July 2022 under the auspices of 21 distinguished international boards of 524 Members from 63 Countries. The conference was planned to be held in Gothenburg, Sweden, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and with everyone’s health and safety in mind, HCII2022 was run as a virtual conference.

This year, the impressive number of 2,264 individuals from 71 countries registered to participate in this truly international in scope event, where the work of world leaders in the field was presented.

The conference program, which included 306 parallel sessions and 23 tutorials, was adapted to suit the needs of its virtual format. The conference started and ended at a different time each day allowing participants from different time zones to join the conference during time-periods which, for some of the time, were more convenient for them, taking particularly into account - to the extent possible - the 'time-zone' of the presenters.

HCII 2022 received submissions from 6,244 individuals from academia, research institutes, industry and governmental agencies: 1,276 papers and 275 posters are in the proceedings already published before the conference, while 296 papers and 179 posters will be included in the ‘Late Breaking Work’ proceedings to appear in the autumn 2022.

HCII 2022 also hosted three workshops:

Ben Shneiderman, Emeritus Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Founding Director (1983-2000) of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory at the University of Maryland, joined us as the keynote speaker at the plenary session. His keynote entitled: "Human-Centered AI: A New Synthesis" was also his acceptance speech for the HCII 2022 award ‘HCI Medal for Societal Impact’ (see below).

We would like to thank each and every one of the Conference participants for their valuable contribution towards the success of this Conference.

The introduction of the HCII 2022 Opening Plenary Session by the General Chair is available through the Conference website.

HCII 2022: HCI Medal for Societal Impact

This year, the HCII conference has established for the first time the “HCI Medal for Societal Impact” to be awarded, during the Opening Plenary Session, to distinguished HCI academics, researchers, or professionals, in recognition of the impact of their work in the field of HCI to society.

The HCII2022 Conference proudly announced that the first recipient of this medal was Ben Shneiderman, Emeritus Professor of Computer Science at the University of Maryland and founder of their Human-Computer Interaction Lab.

We celebrated Ben’s innovative science, engineering, and design breakthroughs in theory and practice, as well as his tireless efforts to initiate and transfer HCI research outcomes to society. His recent efforts on Human-Centered AI carry forward his philosophy of supporting human creativity, self-efficacy, responsibility, and social connectedness. Much work remains to be done, but his transformative efforts improve the lives of every technology user.

Ben has been elected as a Fellow of many professional societies and as a member of the prestigious U.S. National Academy of Engineering in recognition of his pioneering contributions to human-computer interaction and information visualization. His contributions include the direct manipulation concept, which led to the essential clickable highlighted web-links, the ubiquitous small touchscreen keyboards used by billions of people on mobile devices, and a key patent for photo tagging. His work on information visualization led to the successful commercial product, Spotfire, and the widely used treemaps, which are in most visualization tools including Excel. Treemaps are used regularly in media reports on economics, stock markets, voting, and other applications. Novel network visualizations and temporal event sequence analysis for electronic health records are additional success stories. His early devotion to accessibility and universal usability has broadened the benefits of information technology.

Ben has received Honorary Doctorates from six universities on four continents, and has written more than 20 influential books, which have been translated into many languages and used as textbooks in HCI courses worldwide. His publications have been cited more than 100,000 times, demonstrating the breadth of his impact. Ben's contributions epitomize the attributes of this award.

Finally, we applaud his commitment to fostering collaborative solutions and supporting human rights, social justice, and individual dignity.
