--HCI 2012--
Birmingham
People and Computers XXVI
http://hci2012.bcs.org/

****The submission system for the conference is now open. To submit your 
paper go to the submissions page on the website****

--Some History--
HCI 2012 is the 26th Annual Conference of the Specialist HCI group of 
the BCS, the BCS Interaction SG. Since its establishment in 1985, the 
conference has become the leading annual HCI conference in Europe. As 
well as being a leading venue for dissemination, the conference has a 
history of nurturing research careers- many of the leading HCI 
researchers published their early papers here and it is recognised for 
helping students and new academics as much as being a leading forum for 
established researchers. We want to carry on this well-established 
tradition into 2012.

--Conference Theme--
This year we have returned to the founding theme of the conference: 
“People and Computers”. This is to encapsulate and highlight the growing 
diversity of our field of HCI in one event. Technology is now common in 
all walks of life and HCI practitioners and researchers have more areas 
of impact than ever before. We want the conference to reflect this 
growing importance and diversity.

--The Venue--
The City of Birmingham has undergone a transformation over the past few 
decades. It now boasts more canals than Venice, a plethora of riverside 
restaurants, bars and cafes, a range of cuisine from around the world, 
coupled with a compact city vibe. Recently the New York Times listed it 
as one of their top 20 places to go in 2012.

Birmingham is easily accessible by road, rail (Birmingham New Street 
Station) and air (Birmingham International Airport). It is also well 
located for extending your stay, whether you plan a city break to 
explore the centre, or a short trip into the countryside to 
Stratford-upon-Avon, Wales, the Peak District, or the rolling Chilterns 
and Oxfordshire.

The main conference will be held at the IET at Austin Court, a 
purpose-built facility in the centre of town within walking distance of 
major hotels, restaurants, bars and nightlife of the city.

Socially, the conference will build on its reputation for the liveliest, 
friendliest place to meet other HCI researchers. The conference dinner 
will be held at the Botanical Gardens, complete with outdoor spaces, 
tropical hothouses, exotic birds and beautiful parkland.

--Submissions--
We encourage submissions that focus on human interaction with technology 
and computer systems. Whether your work is at the fundamental end of the 
spectrum (theory, design, or principle), or at the practical end 
(evaluation, product, or impact) we are interested in encouraging 
high-quality submissions to the conference.

The dates for submission for each paper track are:
• Full Papers:- 30th March 2012 (Notification:- 31st May 2012)
• Short Papers, WiP & Alt-HCI:- 15th June 2012 (Notification:-27th July 
2012)

Relevant topics areas include but are by no means limited to:
• Persuasive Technology
• Mobile Interactions
• User Experience
• Touchtable interactions
• Affective Computing/Interactions
• Usability Engineering
• Accessibility
• Child Computer Interaction
• Interaction Design
• UCD4D
• Recommender Systems
• Annotation
• Brain Computer Interfaces
• Technology and Culture
• E-Government

All tracks will be peer reviewed by an international panel of leading 
researchers. Papers will be published in the BCS e-WIC repository and in 
the ACM Digital Library.

In keeping with the BCS HCI ethos, early career researchers are 
especially encouraged to submit to the main conference, whilst those 
still undertaking PhDs should consider applying for the doctoral 
consortium, a training and supportively critical forum to discuss your 
research in.

To recognise outstanding contributions to this years conference and to 
nurture the HCI researchers of tomorrow we will have best paper and best 
student paper awards, which will be judged by the reviewers and 
announced at the conference dinner.
