The HCI 2011 conference is being held July 4-8th, at Northumbria University,

Short Papers

We solicit submissions for short papers that address any area of HCI,
including those identified in the conference theme of Health, Wealth and
Happiness. Authors are encouraged to submit late-breaking research results
that show timely and innovative ideas. Short paper submissions should report
original work and must not have been published previously or be a condensed
version of previously published papers.

Submissions must not exceed 6 pages in length and use the BCS format
<> .

Short Paper Chairs: Dr Paul Vickers (Northumbria University);  Dr Steve Love
(Brunel University)


A Work-in-Progress is a concise report of ongoing  work relevant to HCI. The
difference between Works-in-Progress and other submissions  is that the work
submitted to the Work-in-Progress track represents work that is ³hot off the
press² or perhaps not quite completed.  A significant benefit of a
Work-in-Progress submission is  the discussion between the presenter  and
conference attendees that will be fostered by the face-to-face presentation
of the work.

This submission category aims to attract participation from a broad range of
disciplines covering a spectrum of topics and methodologies.

Work in Progress will be submitted,  reviewed, and published as a short
paper but presented as a poster at the conference. Presentation will be part
of a specific poster session and will allow for more active discussion with
interested HCI delegates.

Submissions must not exceed 6 pages in length and use the BCS format

The interactive posters provide a means for having an overview of your work
visible for the entire conference and  a specific session dedicated to
posters. In addition to the static information presented in the poster, you
may wish to bring along an accompanying demo or video. The poster format
offers presenters a forum in which to meet and discuss their work with
others interested in the same topic. It is particularly suited for
descriptions of systems with novel interface features or presenting novel
concepts that might open up interesting discussions with other conference

Submissions must not exceed 2 pages in length and use the BCS format
