HCI International News, Number 54, July 2012



Invitation to attend AHFE 2012 - looking forward to see you all in San Francisco

It is a great pleasure to announce that over 1400 practitioners, scholars, and researchers in the field of Human Factors and Ergonomics and related fields, from 51 countries around the world, have registered to attend, present and share their expertise at the Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics International Conference 2012 in San Francisco.

What makes AHFEI 2012 unique as an international conference? AHFEI 2012 provides the opportunity to share different perspectives and give a rich experience in dealing with HF&E in different social, economical, cultural and geographical contexts.

There is no doubt that in this global and international perspective is extremely important. For example, many companies based in the Silicon Valley have most of their people located in Asia. For people in the US, on the other hand, this is a unique opportunity to meet and interact with peers at home, in one of the best locations of the world: the beautiful city of San Francisco.

We would like to extend our invitation to HFE professionals in the US, and particularly the important community of professionals in Silicon Valley, to register for the conference if they have not already done so.

Looking forward to seeing you soon in the Bay Area.

HCII2013: parallel sessions

There are two different procedures for paper submission and selection in HCI International Conference series:

  1. The ordinary process: Prospective authors submit extended abstracts of papers in one of the Conference Thematic Areas. Program Chairs organize and carry out the peer-review process, and a decision is communicated to the authors.

  2. By invitation: The Conference has a long established tradition of inviting distinguished scientists and professionals in the HCI field to organize parallel sessions. Session organizers are responsible for inviting 6 or 7 prospective authors (academics, researchers and practitioners known in the field for their acknowledged work) to submit paper contributions. Session organizers are also responsible for organizing and carrying out the peer-review process either on an extended abstract or the full paper (it is up to them). It is also the responsibility of the session organizers to set up any intermediate deadlines with the authors in a way that would ensure that the camera-ready version of all session papers reach the Conference Organizers on time for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings.
