Call for Participation - HCI2014

28th British HCI Conference -

Royal Clifton Hotel & Spa, Southport

9th – 12th September 2014

HCI 2014 will be held between the 9th and the 12th September 2014 in Southport. The conference is organised by the University of Central Lancashire's ChiCI research group in conjunction with the British Computer Society.

The theme for HCI 2014 is sand, sea and sky and this relates to the joyful experiences we associate with events such as holidays and how we can understand and incorporate some of this magic in our HCI research along with interactive solutions we design and create.

We can confirm two exciting keynotes:

For the past 25 years, MacKenzie has been an active member of the HCI research community, with over 130 peer-reviewed publications (including more than 30 papers in the ACM SIGCHI conference proceedings). He has published extensively on Fitts Law, text entry systems and has recently published his fourth book entitled Human-Computer Interaction: An Empirical Research Perspective.

Jennifer Sheridan is the award-winning CEO and Founder of Togeva Ltd., located in London's Tech City.
