X Simpósio de Fatores Humanos em Sistemas Computacionais


V Latin American Conference on Human Computer Interaction

Porto de Galinhas, Pernambuco, Brazil, October 25 to 28 2011

Topics of interest


The joint conference theme is **FROM PERSONAL COMPUTERS TO FOLK COMPUTING**, which explicitly evokes not only the speedy evolution of context in the users experience with computers (from the individual to the collective and societal), but also a leap in the knowledge level required from users to take full advantage of widely available resources in Web 2.0 (from knowing about computers to knowing about computing). In the not-so-distant past, full citizenship depended on being literate with Maths and Language in order to use numbers and words efficiently to achieve one's individual and collective goals in society. Now, this depends more and more on being literate with Computers, and using programs to express and achieve our social and civil goals, with the Internet enabling new forms for communities and societies.

The conference organizers invite the Brazilian, the Latin American and the International IHC communities to discuss the role of IHC researchers and practitioners in developing interactive technologies that truly promote Computing Literacy. We are interested in discussing the users' needs, expectations, experiences and possibilities while using computers and computing to participate fully in social and civil activities supported by computer systems. In the context of Latin America, where this conference takes place, we are especially interested in discussing how IHC can promote and bring about increased levels of social development.

Contributions to the conference program should address one of the following non-exclusive aspects of moving FROM PERSONAL COMPUTERS TO FOLK COMPUTING:

  • Accessibility and therapeutic uses of interaction
  • Adaptive, adaptable, intelligent user interfaces
  • Affective computing

In recent years, the proceedings of IHC & CLIHC have been published in the ACM International Conference Series (appearing in the ACM Digital Library). Authors of the best papers of the conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their work for publication in JISA (Journal of Internet Services & Applications) and/or JBCS (Journal of the Brazilian Computer Society)
