HCII 2024: Call for Participation and Conference details

HCI International 2024, the 26th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, jointly with the affiliated Conferences, under the auspices of 21 distinguished international boards, to be held under one management and one registration, will take place at the Washington Hilton Hotel, Washington DC, USA, 29 June - 4 July 2024.

You are invited to participate and contribute, through papers, posters, workshops and student designs to this major international forum for the dissemination and exchange of up-to-date scientific information on theoretical and applied areas of HCI.

Additionally, the Conference has a long-established tradition of inviting distinguished scientists and professionals in the broader HCI field to organize parallel sessions. Prospective authors should submit their proposal upon invitation from a session organizer. The process is open until 2 February 2024 (under the guidance of Parallel Session Organizers).

Mark in your calendar the following important deadlines:

The recipient of the 'HCI MEDAL FOR SOCIETAL IMPACT' for 2024 and Keynote Speaker , in the evening of Monday, 01 July 2024, will be Vicki Hanson (past President of ACM and current ACM’s Chief Executive Officer).

The best contributions will be awarded! The best paper of each of the HCII 2024 Thematic Areas / Affiliated Conferences will be given an award. The best poster extended abstract (in the form of a short research paper) will also receive an award.

Workshops, to be organized as hybrid events, are intended to foster discussion and exchange of ideas on hot topics in the broader field of HCI. Proposals for creative formats are encouraged, where the benefits for workshop participants would need to be indicated. Workshop participation is complimentary for all registered Conference participants. Detailed information about the organization of Workshops are available through the Conference website.

The Student Design Competition gives to College and University students of all grades an opportunity to present their design idea, by submitting an abstract and a video clip (up to 5-minutes).
