The XVIII Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computing Systems (IHC 2019) invites the scientific community to explore the theme "Bridges for Interaction" considering aspects of the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) discipline. The theme refers to the geographic characteristic of the city of Vitória, which is composed of a cluster of 33 islands and a continental area. Seven bridges interconnect the island of Vitória with the continent.
Nowadays, new ways of interacting with machines are permeating our reality and shaping our interactions and social behaviors. To this end, IHC 2019 emphasizes the need for surpassing barriers, crossing borders, combining disciplines, connecting past and future, physical and digital, art and science, all of this aiming at improving the quality of interactions among people and technologies.
In this context, we invite researchers, industry professionals, professors and students who work in the various lines of HCI to submit full papers to this venue. Submissions must contain an original contribution, not published or under review in another forum.
Full papers submissions should have high-quality and solid academic research findings with clear contributions to the HCI area. Contributions should include relevant and unpublished findings from research projects, case studies, informed discussions, or experiences that provide new evidence on HCI research or application.
Full papers must be no longer than 10 pages (plus references). Submissions must be anonymous, written either in English or Portuguese, and must carefully follow the 2017 ACM Master article (SIGCHI) template. MS Word users should use the Interim layout.docx template and LaTex users should follow the sample-sigchi.tex template.
Authors should pay attention to the reference format, which must contain the full name of each author. Authors must submit their papers in PDF format, via the JEMS system.
Submissions will be reviewed by at least three researchers in the HCI area. In case of disparity and inconsistency between reviews, a meta-review process will be conducted to support the final decision. If the submission is accepted, authors must consider reviewers’ comments to prepare the final version of the paper.
Each accepted paper must have at least one registered author to present it in a technical session. Full papers will have 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion.
Accepted full papers will be published in the Symposium’s proceedings and will be indexed in the ACM Digital Library. The paper publication is subject to the registration of at least one of the authors and the paper presentation at the event. The registration of each author entitles the publication of 1 (one) paper (full or short). For the publication of more than one paper linked to a same registration, an additional fee no higher than a student registration fee will be charged for each extra paper.
