       8th Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computer Systems
                                 [structural - permanent - natural]
                          October 21-24 2008 - Porto Alegre, Brazil

The Brazilian Symposium of Human Factors on Computer Systems (IHC)
is the main forum of the Brazilian Human-Computer Interaction(HCI)
community. This symposium welcome researchers, professionals,
educators and students of various HCI-related disciplines, such
as Computer Science, Psychology, Ergonomics and Graphic Design,
among others.

We celebrate in 2008 the 10th anniversary of HCI events in Brazil
and we invite the community to discuss nowadays HCI and what it is
expected for the next 10 years. In particular we expect contributions
related (but not limited) to aging and User eXperience (UX). Our goal
is to discuss the many roles played by interactive systems at the
different phases of human life which includes users who learned to
use the computer before learning to read, users who employ computer
in their daily life as a mean to gain productivity, for entertainment
and/or to socialize, and those seniors users who are learning the new
technologies to improve their quality of life.

IHC 2008 is organized in cooperation with ACM SIGCHI and it is
supported by Brazilian Computing Society (SBC) and PUCRS.
