29 - 30 March 2007, Aveiro, Portugal

Papers Submission: December 18, 2006

Notification of acceptance: February 5, 2007
Final submission: February 28, 2007


HCIEd 2007 is the annual international conference of Human-Computer
Interaction Educators from both industry and academia. This year the
conference focuses on the theme 'Creativity3: Experiencing to educate
and design'. While it has been argued that creativity is an innate
human quality, we have also seen that, as we expand our experiences of
creativity and increase our repertoire of design solutions, we can
improve our ability to develop new, creative and innovative HCI design

Creativity, education and design as well as its reach and vivid
experience are the dimensions we want to explore in HCIEd 2007,
towards a better understanding of creative processes and abilities
while encouraging and nurturing creative mindsets. The Conference
seeks to strengthen the dialogue among disciplines contributing to HCI
education, such as psychology, design, ergonomics, etc. We invite
educators, researchers, developers, artists and practitioners,
including computer and information scientists; engineers; product,
graphic, and interaction designers; creative practitioners; social
scientists, ethnographers, and anthropologists to submit original work
that reflects upon their own experiences of developing innovative or
creative designs, and to articulate these experiences in a way that
others, such as our students, can learn from them. We also encourage
papers that describe how one could create an environment (classroom,
course design, practical exercises, frameworks and tools for
generating ideas) that would encourage creativity among our students.

HCIEd 2007 welcomes original contributions, from the following areas:

.:. Education, research and training methods that encourage creativity
for novel interfaces
.:. HCI education theories, methods and practices that encourage
creative problem resolution
.:. Principle-based interaction design solutions
.:. Techniques, methods and environments for fostering creativity
.:. Individual and collaborative practices for enhancing creativity
.:. Creativity in the design process
.:. Innovations in the conception, development and evaluation of
interactive systems
.:. Innovations in interactivity and experience
.:. Case studies on encouraging creativity in the design process,
artefacts, and everyday things
.:. Transdisciplinary methods and models that encourage or facilitate creativity

Papers should present studies that contribute to our understanding of
HCI education as an engaging experience, critical and reflective
approaches to the design of interactive technology, research on how to
approach the conception, development and evaluation of innovative as
well as mundane artefacts.  Papers should respect the ACM SIGCHI
two-column format (see and contain a
maximum of 8 pages.

Short papers and posters can be based on case studies or reports of
best practices showing the process by which creative design can be
encouraged and experienced by HCI students. Also, these may report
small experiments or techniques in a concise format. Papers should
respect the ACM SIGCHI two-column format (see and contain a
maximum of 4 pages.
