IsraHCI 2018: The Sixth Israeli Human-Computer Interaction Research Conference
January 4, 2018, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer Sheva

Call for Submissions:

The IsraHCI Research Conference brings together researchers and practitioners interested in the intricacies of the design, evaluation and implementation of interactive systems. At its sixth year, the conference is becoming the premier forum to present, discuss and experience novel interactive systems from a research-oriented perspective. We invite those interested in HCI – from industry and academia, from design, engineering, computer science, psychology, education and the UX community - to take part in this exciting event and contribute to the growth of the Israeli HCI research community.

The objectives of the Israeli HCI Research Conference are to: 
* Create a bridge between academic research in HCI and those developing innovative interactive technologies in the Israeli industry
* Contribute to the growth of Israeli research in human-computer interaction  
* Establish an inclusive community of Israeli researchers, allowing students to present work and enter the research area
* Foster interdisciplinary collaborations

The sixth IsraHCI conference will be held on January 4, 2018 at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer Sheva. It will include several sessions, each dedicated to highlighting research on different aspects of human-computer interaction, UI/UX, HRI and related areas.

All submissions (except for the Radical UI track) can be in English or in Hebrew. Verbal presentations at the conference are usually given in Hebrew, but English is also accepted. Please see detailed track description and submission guidelines on the conference’s website:
