V Mexican Conference on Human-Computer Interaction

Scientific research consists in seeing what everyone else has seen, but thinking what no one else has thought .

Our commitment to research

MexIHC is Mexico's premier forum for researchers and practitioners to present advances in human computer interaction. MexIHC 2014 is the fifth Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, organized by the Mexican ACM SIGCHI chapter (CHI-México) in a biennial format alternating with the Latin American Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (CLIHC). MexIHC aims to be a forum of networking and ideas exchange among students and researchers, faculty and practitioners, institutions and interest groups, in the field of Human-Computer Interaction and Interactive Systems Usability, in order to support an exchange of scientific results, and their applications in industry.

MexIHC 2014 will be held at NovaUniversitas in Ocotlán de Morelos, Oaxaca; while social and cultural events will be held in the city of Oaxaca. The conference will provide transportation between Ocotlán Morelos and the city of Oaxaca.
