Call for Papers

Conference Aims

MexIHC is Mexico's premier forum for researchers and practitioners to present advances in Human- Computer Interaction in a biennial format. MexIHC 2016 is the sixth Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, organized by the Mexican ACM SIGCHI chapter (CHI-México) and the Mexican Association on Human Computer Interaction (AMexIHC). 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.

This year MexIHC will be celebrated jointly with the 5th International Conference on Information Technology (CITI 2016), keeping their own identities, to join forces and establish partnerships between the two communities.

Papers will be blind peer-reviewed by members of the MexIHC 2016 program committee (TBC). Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical correctness, and presentation.

Types of submissions

Full papers (Up to 8 pages)

Full papers should describe original work that have not previously been published and provide significant results of scientific research. Presentation time for full papers will be 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions. The papers with this format should be written in English ONLY.

Short Papers or Notes (Up to 4 pages)

Short papers should describe innovative work in progress, without significant results yet, that contribute to well-founded research. Presentation time for short papers will be 10 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions. The papers with this format could be written in English or Spanish.

Posters (Up to 2 pages)

Posters must present work in progress or consist of a demonstration of a technical tool. These contributions will be exhibited in a poster session during the conference where there are presentations and demonstrations to all the community. Posters can be written either in English or Spanish.

Graduate Colloquium (Up to 2 pages)

The Graduate Colloquium is a forum in which master and PhD students will discuss their work with each other and with experts in their area. Students will present and discuss their theses and will receive feedback from experts in the area to help them with their research plans. These papers are assigned a 2-page limit in the conference proceedings and their first author must be a master or a PhD Student. Master or PhD students will give a short presentation (10 minutes) about their work. After each presentation, a group discussion will take place. The papers with this format can be written in either English or Spanish.

Workshop / Tutorial proposals (Up to 2 pages)

Anyone interested in organizing a workshop, parallel to the conference, can send a workshop proposal to the Program Committee including: title, brief description, topics of interest, workshop objectives, the expected audience, anticipated outcomes, and short CVs of workshop proposers.
