Welcome to the Latin- American perspective on HCI


The diversity of Latin America is evident in its people, culture, geography,
history and perspectives. This conference aims at capturing this richness
within the context of those researchers and practitioners from and in Latin
American working in the area of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). The
conference will serve as a venue for the inter-change of ideas, methods,
approaches and techniques of those aiming at designing interactive
experiences for the people of Latin America. It has its origin in two
previous editions of the Latin American Conference on Human-Computer
Interaction (CLIHC): In 2003 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and in 2005 in
Cuernavaca, Mexico and in 2007 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Following the
spirit of these previous editions, we acknowledge that in the HCI field, not
only should we reach for technology that can be used and appreciated by the
widest range of people, but also for means to promote inter-cultural
exchange and cross-fertilization among people with diverse backgrounds and
needs. The workshop is open to all topics and disciplines related to HCI. 


Topics include, but are not limited to: 

· user interface design and evaluation methods 

· universal accessibility 

· cross-cultural and internationalization issues 

· multi-modal interfaces, theoretical & multidisciplinary aspects 

· social and cultural issues in HCI 

· intelligent user interfaces 

· personalization and adaptive interfaces 

· end-user programming, multimedia 

· virtual reality and games 

· online communities and pervasive computing.
