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.


CLIHC will accept submissions in the following categories:

1 Full papers (up to 8 pages submissions) - Full papers are submissions describing results and original research work not submitted or published elsewhere. Full papers should properly place the work within the field, cite related work, and clearly indicate the innovative aspects of the work and its contribution to the field

2 Short papers (up to 4 pages submissions) - Authors are invited to submit work in progress whose preliminary results are already interesting to CLIHC audience. This track will give CLIHC attendees a way to learn about ongoing research initiatives and will provide presenters with an excellent opportunity to receive invaluable direct feedback from experts.

3 Posters - For the first time in the CLIHC conference series, the poster session in CLIHC 2009 will be held simultaneously in real life at the conference and online in Second Life. Authors will present their work and interact with conference attendees and people who could not attend the conference.
