*Call for Papers: International Symposium of Interaction Design and Human
Factors - IDHF2014*

*Website: <>*

*25th – 26th November 2014*

The study of human factors discovers and applies information about human
behaviour, abilities, and other characteristics to the design of tools,
machines, systems, tasks, jobs, and environments, for productive, safe,
comfortable, and effective human use. Interaction design is inherently
multidisciplinary, forward looking, and aims to sketch, synthesise and
prototype the future. Although the two fields are related, there are
differences in approach. For example, interaction designers often seek to
shape, create and explore future solutions. Human factors researchers seek
to operationalize social, psychological or behavioural theory to optimize
design (e.g. error free interaction). When focused on a common problem,
human factors and interaction design can be complementary, but there is a
need to understand how best to achieve this.

IDHF 2014 focuses on the relationship between the two, aiming to support
design practice, though the factoring of established research findings
relating to human error, cognitive performance and/or perceptual-motor
control.  IDHF 2014 will be held on November 25-26 (Nov. 25 afternoon,
registration; Nov. 26, full-day conference), in Kochi, Japan  ( We will have two SIGCHI Academy members, John M.
Carroll from Penn State University and Aaron Marcus from AM+A, as keynote
speakers. We will invite forty world class researchers, most of whom are
based in Asia, to attend in order to present research findings, discuss
their work, foster collaborations and develop underlying methodological
frameworks, to drive HCI field forward. We will set up two parallel panel
discussion: Safe & Natural Interactions, and HCI & Education. Accepted
papers of sufficient quality will be published in a special issue of
Interacting with Computers.

IDHF2014 invites submissions in all areas of Human Computer Interaction,
Human Factors, Usability, Interaction Design and related areas.

*Submission Website*

*Submission Types*

We encourage the following submission types:

*Full Papers*

Full Papers are intended to report stable and completed research. Papers
will be 4-10 pages and will undergo a peer review process. Submitted full
papers should follow the ACM CHI paper template (Word:
Accepted papers will be presented orally, at the symposium. *Authors of
accepted papers, of sufficient quality, will have an opportunity to extend,
revise and resubmit them to Interacting with Computers Special issue in
Human Factors and Interaction Design for Critical Systems. *

Please note that there is no requirement to anonymize paper submissions and
at least one author of each accepted paper needs to register for the


This is a juried submission track that allows attendees to showcase early,
relatively speculative or not yet completed work so that others can know
what they are doing. Authors are required to submit a poster and a 1-page
poster paper including author information and a description of the study.
Submitted poster papers should follow the IDHF Poster Paper template
(Word: Download
For the review process, the poster should be reduced to one standard page
in size and submitted as a PDF file.

Please note that there is no requirement to anonymize poster submissions
and at least one author of each accepted paper needs to register for the

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Kochi!
