Full Papers:Full papers should describe original work that have not previously been published and provide significant results of scientific research. Presentation time for full papers will be 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions. These papers are assigned a 8-page limit in the conference proceedings.


Short Papers: Short papers should describe innovative work in progress, without  significant results yet, that contibute to well-founded research.

Doctoral Colloquium: The Doctoral Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students will discuss their work with each other and with experts in their area. Students will present and discuss their thesis and will receive feedback to help them with their research plans. These papers are assigned a 2-page limit in the conference proceedings and first author must be a PhD Student. PhD students will give a short presentation (10 minutes) about their work. After each presentation, group discussion will take place.


Experiences and case studies: The experiences and case studies are technical papers to present  real applications and projects related to HCI outside the scientific field. Authors from industry or public administration will present in this session their work,  which may be of interest to the HCI community, due to results and/or  methods and techniques used. These papers are assigned a 2-page limit in the conference proceedings. Presentation time for technical papers will be 10 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions.


Tutorial proposals: Anyone interested in organizing a tutorial can send a tutorial proposal (2-pages maximum) to the Program Committee including a description of objectives, profile of audience, duration, table of contents, outcomes and curriculum of speaker(s).


Workshop proposal: Anyone interested in organizing a workshop, parallel to the conference, can send a workshop proposal to the Program Committee including title, brief description, topics of interest, workshop objectives, the expected audience, anticipated outcomes, Organizing Committee and Program Committee and the names and short CVs of workshop proposers. Workshop leaders will have the possibility of submitting 2-page paper for review and inclusion in the  conference proceedings.


High level work: Works of high quality pending publication in prestigious journals. In this case, in the proceeding only appears the abstract.





All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be published in the ACM Digital Library as a volume in its International Conference Proceedings Series with ISBN 978-1-4503-2880-7. The conference procedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index).




Accepted full and short papers written in English will be published entirely in the ACM Digital Library. Those accepted papers written in Spanish or Portuguese will have to submit a 2-pages extended abstract in English to be published in the ACM Digital Library.


Authors with best papers will be invited to prepare and submit extended versions to be considered, after a new peer review, for publication in several special issues of international scientific journals, some of them indexed by ISI Thomson’s Journal Citation Report (JCR).
