11th Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computer Systems (IHC)
                                                in conjunction with
       Brazilian Symposium on Multimedia and Web Systems (WebMedia),
                Brazilian Symposium on Collaborative Systems (SBCS),
                           &  Brazilian Symposium on Data Base (SBBD)
             October 5-8 2010 - Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil

The Brazilian Symposium of Human Factors on Computer Systems (IHC)
is the main forum of the Brazilian Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)
community. This symposium brings together researchers, industry
professionals, educators and students of various HCI-related
disciplines, such as Computer Science, Psychology, Ergonomics
and Graphic Design, among others.

The last edition, in 2008, celebrated the 10th anniversary of HCI
events in Brazil. The community discussed the great advances in
this period, the birth of a generation of researchers, the
integration of usability and accessibility subjects into the
governmental technological policies, as well as the awareness of
the industry to the importance of user-centered design practices.

Despite these advances, much remains to be done. Our daily
relations with interactive systems demand deepen studies to
improve this communication. We must not only to research and to
discuss new ways to interact with interactive systems (and all
aspects related to them), but also new forms of interaction from
interactive systems, and especially that these forms should be
effective, efficient and available to everyone.

So we invite the community to attend this year event submitting
work to the various categories and/or attending the event to
discuss the progress and needs of the area.

IHC 2010 is organized in cooperation with ACM SIGCHI and it is
supported by Brazilian Computing Society (SBC) and the Federal
University of Minas Gerais (UFMG).

Submission and Publication
Authors can submit their work either in Portuguese or in English.
All submissions should be anonymous and they must be sent
electronically via the JEMS web site at:

Accepted papers in this category will be published in the conference
proceedings (the idea is to publish them also in ACM’s digital library,
as done in previous events).

Papers will be presented in a technical session and will be allocated
20 minutes for oral presentation followed by 10-minute discussions.

Important dates:
* Deadline for submissions extended: June 10th
* Acceptance notification extended: July 23rd
* Final version deadline extended: August 15th

Program Committee and Full papers chair: Milene Silveira (PUCRS)
Organizing Co-chairs: Raquel Oliveira Prates&  Clarindo Isaías
