HCI 2010: Play is a Serious Business 

The 24th BCS International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 

Dundee, UK, 6th-10th September 2010 

For over 25 years the BCS HCI conference has brought together researchers,
developers and industrialists from around the world to discuss the wide
range of topics and ideas encompassed within Human Computer Interaction. As
a result, networks have been created, partnerships formed, new research has
been generated, and good work has been disseminated. Next year the
conference takes place in Dundee, Scotland, from 6th to 10th September, and,
in addition to the usual wide range of topics, has the special theme “Play
is a Serious Business”. The theme reflects the development of the University
of Abertay as a Centre of Excellence in Computer Games Education, and the
cluster of industrial companies involved in all aspects of the Computer
Games industry in Dundee, and there will be opportunities for delegates to
interact with games designers and developers, and their products, at the

This call seeks submissions from academics, researchers, students,
industrial and commercial practitioners in the following forms:

* Full research papers – maximum of 8 pages, on recent, unpublished research
on any HCI research topic.

* Industrial practice papers – the conference will have two industrial
practice threads running alongside the HCI research threads on at last one
day, these threads being “Mobile HCI” and “Computer Games”, and
practitioners are invited to submit papers, up to a maximum of 8 pages, on
any aspect of research, development or industrial practice related to these
two topics. 

*  Encounter papers – these are short, maximum 4 pages, papers and
presentation outlines that will be presented to delegates in an interactive
format involving a direct promenade-style interaction with the authors (more
detail will be provided on the conference website). These papers can reflect
any of the topics identified in the call, and should be identified as
fitting one of four themes for these papers:

- Student work (please note, a separate call for papers for the PhD Forum
will follow) 

- Research ideas 

- Research in progress 

- Commercial and industrial applications

Each of these themes will appear in separate encounter paper sessions at the
conference, so please ensure when making your submission that you clearly
indicate which theme your paper represents.

All papers should be formatted to the ACM standard, see , and will appear
on-line in the BCS EWiCS series and the ACM Digital Library. Submissions
should be made through the EasyChair system, which will open for submissions
early next year and will be linked from the conference website with detailed
