User Experience Design, Interaction Design and Human-Computer Interaction are broad terms that have been used by vibrant professional and academic communities, oftentimes in separate events in Latin America.In 2015, we have decided to come together in Interaction South America and the Latin American Conference on Human-Computer Interaction. During Days 1 and 2, a scientific track will present contributions selected by the CLIHC 2015 Program Committee, whereas a practitioners track will present work carefully curated by the ISA Professional Committee. For the first time in South America, the synergy of both communities will be experienced.
With the support of ACM's Special Interest Group on Human-Computer Interaction (SIGCHI)
The Latin American Conference on Human Computer Interaction (CLIHC) aims to provide a premier forum that brings together the Latin American and international HCI research communities to discuss and exchange ideas, methods, approaches and techniques for designing interactive user experiences. This conference has its origin in Rio de Janeiro 2003 (Brazil), following editions in Cuernavaca 2005 (Mexico), Rio de Janeiro 2007 (Brazil), Merida 2009 (Mexico), Porto de Galinhas 2011 (Brazil), and Guanacaste 2013 (Costa Rica). In consonance with previous editions, we believe that in the field of HCI we must come to a technology that not only can be used and appreciated by as many people as possible, but that also promotes intercultural exchange and cooperation between people with different backgrounds and needs.
This year, CLIHC 2015 is organized jointly with Interaction South America (ISA 2015), the annual event that brings together the professional community in Interaction and User experience design. Participants will have the unique opportunity to explore synergies and collaboration opportunities between the research and practitioners communities.
