Update: Conference proceedings now available on-line.

I-HCI 2009 is the third conference of the Irish HCI Community. It includes a rich program of interest to both industry practitioner or researcher along with academia. This program includes an IxDA Industry Session, a tutorial on Inclusive Design for Older and Disabled Users offered by Prof. Helen Petrie and colleagues from the Univ. of York, a workshop on experience, usability, and functionality: exploring the components of interaction, organised by HFRG, UCC and UL. Along with a peer reviwed regular, short paper and student paper program (see full program).

Cover of I-HCI 2009 ProceedingsI-HCI 2009 will be held in Trinity College Dublin on the 17th and 18th of September it is organised and sponsored by the School of Computer Science and Statistics, Trinity College Dublin and the School of Computer Science and Informatics, University College ‚Ä®Dublin. Human Computer Interaction research and developments are targetted at augmented human activity and enriching our life experiences. This two day event aims to bring together researchers, students and practitioners through the program of events described. 

The Irish HCI community is evolving with the establishment of the ACM SIGCHI chapter and as such the 2009 program will not be based around a specific theme. Instead, we have encouraged submissions on novel HCI concepts, insightful surveys of existing work, or concrete, significant, transferable research based on the implementation and evaluation of a working system. Speculative short papers (upto 4 pages) may report work in progress or an interesting idea that is not yet fully developed.

I-HCI 2009 follows on from the great success of the past two conference events, I-HCI 2008 at the University College Cork, September 19th & 20th and I-HCI 2007 in the University of Limerick on May 2nd.

Thanks to the authors for some of the papers to be presented at I-HCI for their research images which are displayed on cover of the proceedings.
