IHC 2001 - IV Brazilian Workshop on Human Factors
in Computer Systems
Call For Papers

Florianópolis, Brazil – October 15th-17th de Outubro, 2001
(to be held jointly with Sibgrapi 2001, SBMídia 2001 and SRV 2001)

IHC is the main scientific meeting of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) in
Brazil. IHC is the official event of the Brazilian Computer Society
(Sociedade Brasileira de Computação - SBC) in this field. The fourth edition
of IHC - IHC 2001 - will take place in October, 2001 in Florianópolis, SC,
Brazil, and will be organized by the Department of Computing and Statistics
(INE) of the Federal University of Santa Catarina. IHC 2001 will be  held
jointly with  SIBGRAPI 2001 (14th Brazilian Symposium of Computer Graphics
and Image Processing, SVR 2001 (4th SBC Symposium on Virtual Reality) and
SBMIDIA 2001 (VII Brazilian Symposium on Multimedia and Hypermedia Systems).

IHC Workshops are meant to:

- allow the Brazilian HCI community to meet and interact more closely
- foster interdisciplinary debate and encourage association among groups of
people with different backgrounds
- provide a solid basis for cooperative work among HCI groups from different
institutions involved with research, education and practice
- bring the industry to a closer interaction with research groups and
promote joint projects
- survey the state-of-the-art of HCI in Brazil and
- encourage the participation of Latin American communities

In short, the objective is to allow the meeting, the debate and the
cooperation among students, practitioners, researchers, enterprises working
on the multiple areas and disciplines of  research and development of
Human-Computer Interfaces.

The scheduled activities will seek to implement this objective not only by
means of invited talks and the presentation of selected papers, but also by
means of  round tables, tutorials, posters presentations and demonstration
of tools related to the HCI area.

Official workshop languages: Portuguese and English


The IHC 2001 Program Committee invites researchers and professionals of the
HCI area to submit original work that concern the challenges associated to
the development of new concepts, technologies, applications and HCI styles.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

· Accessibility and HCI for users with special needs
· Web interfaces, WAP interfaces, Web Interactivity and Accessibility
· HCI theory and models
· Methods and techniques in HCI design
· Task analysis: models, techniques and tools
· Methods and techniques for HCI evaluation
· Environments and tools for design and evaluation of interfaces
· Theoretical and practical contributions of various disciplines (among them
are included but not limited to: Ergonomics, Communication, Physiology,
Semiotics, Design, Linguistics, Artificial Intelligence, Sociology and
Psychology) to the work in HCI
· Software usability and Ergonomic aspects of HCI
· Computational semiotics
· Graphic design application in HCI, visual semiology, information
· Education in HCI
· HCI for learning environments and distance learning
· HCI to cooperative work environments, CSCW and groupware
· Animation and virtual reality in HCI
· Multimedia interfaces, interfaces with voice, sounds or music
· New concepts and technologies for interaction
· Experience reports on HCI applications of concepts, techniques, models or
tools in the development of interactive systems in industry, commerce and

The papers will be evaluated by a board of reviewers from the HCI area.
Accepted papers will be presented during the event and published in the
proceedings. At least one author of each selected submission should
participate in IHC 2001 to present the paper.


Authors are invited to submit contributions presenting original and yet non
published work.  Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on
originality, significance, theoretical relevance, clarity, and comparison
with related work. All papers will be reviewed by at least two program
committee members.

Format. Submissions should NOT have any kind of identification of the
authors. A space, long enough for this identification, should be left blank
right below the title. The abstract and the text should follow next. All
specific information about the authors should be included in a separate
Presentation Sheet sent together with the submission.

IHC 2001 will accept the following categories of submission:

Papers: should present relevant contribution to HCI research and/or practice
and should not be longer than  12 pages (including figures and references);

Posters: can present reports on practical experiences in computational
interfaces design, in applications of HCI concepts and/or academic work in
progress, and should not be longer than 3 pages (including figures and

Submissions should be sent electronically (PostScript, PDF or RTF format)
through the following URL:

The following information should be included in the Presentation Sheet:

* Submission title;
* Submission  category (paper or poster);
* Short abstract (7 lines);
* List of the workshop topics related to the paper (see Topics of Interest
* Author names and affiliations, the name of the contact author, including
postal and electronic addresses, telephone and fax numbers;
* Language in which the paper could be presented (in Portuguese only or
possibly in English)

The submission will be confirmed. If not, please contact the organization:
