You are cordially invited to participate in CLIHC/LA-WEB 2009, the Joint
Conference encompassing the 4th. Latin American Conference on Human-computer
Interaction (CLIHC) and the 7th Latin American Web Congress, which will be held
November 9-11, 2009, in Mérida, Yucatán.

Held in conjunction with LA-Web

Welcome to the Latin- American perspective on HCI

The diversity of Latin America is evident in its people, culture, geography,
history and perspectives. This conference aims at capturing this richness
within the context of those researchers and practitioners from and in Latin
American working in the area of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). The
conference will serve as a venue for the inter-change of ideas, methods,
approaches and techniques of those aiming at designing interactive experiences
for the people of Latin America. It has its origin in two previous editions of
the Latin American Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (CLIHC): In 2003 in
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and in 2005 in Cuernavaca, Mexico and in 2007 in Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil. Following the spirit of these previous editions, we
acknowledge that in the HCI field, not only should we reach for technology that
can be used and appreciated by the widest range of people, but also for means to
promote inter-cultural exchange and cross-fertilization among people with
diverse backgrounds and needs. The workshop is open to all topics and
disciplines related to HCI.

•        user interface design and evaluation methods
