Full Papers

Papers may address any area of HCI, which will be handled by one or more of the following sub-committees (for a more extensive list of potential themes please see https://interact2019.org/calls/):
  • Design for business and safety/critical interactive systems
  • Design of interactive entertainment systems
  • HCI Education and Curriculum
  • Interactive Systems Technology and Engineering
  • Information visualization
  • Methodologies for User-Centered Design
  • Social Interaction and Mobile HCI
  • Understanding Human Aspects of HCI
  • Accessibility and Assistive Technologies
  • Interaction design for culture and development

Submissions should report original work and must not have been published previously.

All full paper submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts. The review process will retain the anonymity of authors and reviewers. After review, authors of borderline papers may submit a rebuttal (the meta-review will clearly state where this is appropriate). INTERACT 2019 will include a shepherding process for papers which are conditionally accepted at the Program Committee meeting prior to the decisions being released.

We invite you to pre-register your submission and upload an abstract by 14 January 2019. You are allowed to have four additional pages of references beyond the page limit. Therefore, authors are invited to submit full papers with a maximum limit of 18 pages (plus four pages of references), in PDF format by 28 January 2019 – 23:59 PT, using the conference submission system.


Guidelines

Papers should be formatted according to Springer LNCS format. Accepted full papers must be presented at the conference and will be published in Springer LNCS Series.

Authors should guarantee the anonymity of their submissions. Please remove names and affiliations from the first page. Avoid obvious identifying statements in the paper. Citations to your own relevant work should not be anonymous, but rather should be done without identifying yourself as the author. For example, say “Prior work by [authors]” instead of “In our prior work.”

Full papers may optionally be accompanied by a video not exceeding 30 MB in size. Video figures will be published online and may be used for publicity.

BEST PAPERS of INTERACT 2019 will be invited to submit an extended version which will be published in a special edition of the BIT (Behaviour in Information Technology) Journal.

INTERACT IFIP TC13 PAPER AWARDS

IFIP TC13 considers papers for four awards at each INTERACT Conference, namely the:

  • Brain Shackel Award.
  • IFIP TC13 Pioneers’ Award for Best Doctoral Student Paper at INTERACT.
  • IFIP TC13 Accessibility Award.
  • IFIP TC13 Interaction Design for International Development Award.


IFIP TC13 Brian Shackel Award 

The Brian Shackel Award is associated with each INTERACT Conference, and is to recognize the most outstanding contribution in the form of a refereed paper submitted to and delivered at the Conference. The purpose is to draw attention to the need for a comprehensive human-centred approach in the design and use of information technology in which the human and social implications have been taken into account. The Brian Shackel Award consists of a commemorative plaque. In addition, each author of the selected contribution will receive a certificate.

The criteria for the Brian Shackel Award are:

  1. An outstanding contribution with international impact in the field of human interaction with, and human use of, computers and information technology.
  2. The paper selected should draw attention to the need for a comprehensive human-centred approach in the design and use of information technology in which the human and social implications have been taken into account.
  3. Any paper submitted to the next INTERACT Conference can be a candidate.


IFIP TC13 Pioneers’ Award for Best Doctoral Student Paper at INTERACT

The IFIP TC13 Pioneer title is awarded to honour the greatest contributors to the development and growth of the field of Human-Computer Interaction.  An IFIP TC13 Pioneer is one who has made outstanding contributions to the educational, theoretical, technical, commercial or professional aspects of analysis, design, construction, evaluation and use of interactive systems.

At each INTERACT Conference, the past recipients of the IFIP TC13 Pioneer title selects the best research paper by a doctoral student submitted and accepted to the Conference to be awarded the IFIP TC13 Pioneers’ Award for Best Doctoral Student Paper at INTERACT. The paper should be presented by the student.

Criteria for the IFIP TC13 Pioneers’ Award for Best Doctoral Student Paper at INTERACT are:

  • The paper must be based on the doctoral research of the student, as presented/to be presented in the student’s doctoral thesis.
  • The doctoral student must be the first and primary author of the paper.
  • The paper must be accepted as a full research paper for the INTERACT Conference.
  • The doctoral student must present the paper at the INTERACT Conference.


IFIP TC13 Accessibility Award

The IFIP TC13 Accessibility Award is associated with each INTERACT Conference, and is to recognise the most outstanding contribution of ageing, disability and inclusive design in the form of a refereed paper submitted to and delivered at the Conference.

Working Group 13.3 on HCI and Disability offers this award in order to draw attention to the need of information technology which takes into account the needs and preferences of people who are older and disabled. This may be in the form of an assistive technology specifically for older and disabled people, or a generic design solution that would be more usable for a wider range of people.

The criteria for the IFIP TC13 Accessibility Award are:

  • An outstanding contribution with international impact in the field of human interaction with, and human use of, computers and information technology, by people who are older or disabled.
  • Any paper submitted to the INTERACT Conference in the year under consideration can be a candidate, except any written by members of the Accessibility Award Committee.


IFIP TC13 Interaction Design for International Development Award

The IFIP TC13 Interaction Design for International Development Award is associated with each INTERACT Conference, and is to recognise the most outstanding contribution to the application of interactive systems for social and economic development of people in developing countries, in the form of a refereed paper submitted to and delivered at the Conference.

Working Group 13.8 on Interaction Design for International Development offers this Award to highlight the need for information technology that is designed to meet the needs, values, aspirations and preferences of people who are economically and socially marginalized throughout the world, and to draw attention to the potential of HCI to contribute to the design and delivery of such technologies.

The criteria for the IFIP TC13 Interaction Design for International Development Award are:

  • An outstanding contribution in the field of the analysis, design, development or evaluation of interactive systems that have the potential to contribute to the social and/or economic development of people who are economically and socially marginalized in developing regions of the world.
  • Any full paper submitted to the INTERACT Conference in the year under consideration can be a candidate, except any written by members of the Coordinators of the Award.
