Short courses aim to present a general view on a trending research topic or technology (in a practical and didactical manner) that might be interesting for the HCI community. Attendants should be able to learn about a new topic and apply it to their research and practice. Short courses have as target audience undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and/or professionals. The registration for each short course is separate from the registration for the symposium (it is possible to register to participate only in short courses, without registering for the symposium).
Short courses must be planned for lasting either 3 or 6 hours and be presented in Portuguese or English. Short courses are subject to cancellation if there is not a minimum of 10 registered participants. If less than 10 participants register, short courses are decided by the event’s organizing committee.
Submissions should be limited to two pages, either in Portuguese or English, using 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. Submissions must contain the following information:
Authors should pay attention to the references format, according to the required template. Authors must submit their short course proposals in PDF format via the JEMS system.
Submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by at least two researchers members of the HCI community. They will analyze the intersection between the short course proposal and the topics related to the HCI area, and if the proposal is in the community interest.
