****BCS HCI 2012****
**Birmingham, UK. September 12th-14th**
*****Deadline for Submissions: 15th June 2012*****
Does your work push the bounds of HCI?Do you find mentioning it amongst 
your colleagues sparks endless debate?Are you working with a group of 
users that are in some way extreme or exploring conceptions of 
technology that do not fit or standard models? Do you have a weird 
finding or observation you would like to share, but that does not seem 
to fit into traditional ways of talking about HCI?Are you simply 
revisiting and area that was once mainstream and is now out of fashion, 
or dismissed?Or reproducing an old result and finding it not quite as 

Perhaps you are investigating methods for inducing negative user 
experience, or for not getting things done (or is that Facebook?). Maybe 
you would like to argue for the importance of Taylorism within HCI, or 
explore user interfaces for the neonate.

We are looking for papers and topics that make us think again about HCI, 
that spark discussion, that would get highly divergent grades in 
standard review process.
Human–Computer Interaction is a broad discipline, and the British HCI 
conference has always been more accepting of the range of this than some 
venues. However, we still need to be challenged, to see new things, or 
see the old in new ways.
This is the place to do it!

Review and Submission Process
Submissions should not be anonymised.
We will be adopting a largely open review process, where we well invite 
discussion and comment on submitted papers, and the vibrancy of this 
discussion will be a major criterion in acceptance. Authors will be 
strongly encouraged to enter into that discussion with other papers, 
maybe find threads between the work even during this phase.
In addition we are looking for quality. The results that you find might 
be challenging, the area you address might be uncomfortable, the methods 
you use might be unusual, but do present your arguments and reasons 
clearly even of their conclusions are controversial.
However, do feel free to experiment with format and genre (within the 
bounds of the publication guidelines!): dialogue, snippets of poetry, 
cartoons. Whatever carries the message and stimulates thought.
Submit your papers using the Easychair system:

Papers should be written using the EWics format available on the 
conference website:
