IADIS International Conference Interfaces and Human Computer Interaction 2013 (part of the MCCSIS 2013 Conference)


The 7th edition of the Interfaces and Human Computer Interaction 2013 (IHCI) International Conference was held in Prague, Czech Republic, during 22 to 24 July, 2013 and was co-organised by The University of Economics in Prague (VŠE), Czech Republic. This conference was part of the IADIS Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems 2013, 22 - 26 July.

The Interfaces and Human Computer Interaction 2013 conference addressed the main issues of concern within Interface Culture and Design with a particular emphasis on the affective aspects of design, development and implementation of interfaces and the generational implications for design of human and technology interaction. This conference aimed to explore and discuss innovative studies of technology and its application in interfaces and welcomes research in progress, case studies, practical demonstrations and workshops in addition to the traditional submission categories.

ihci2013This conference has covered both technological as well as non-technological issues related to these developments.

The proceedings of the Interfaces and Human Computer Interaction 2013 Conference were jointly published with the Game and Entertainment Technologies 2013 Conference.

These events received 155 submissions from more than 29 countries. Each submission has been anonymously reviewed by an average of five independent reviewers, to ensure that accepted submissions were of a high standard. Consequently only 27 full papers were approved which means an acceptance rate of 17 %. A few more papers were accepted as short papers, reflection paper and posters.

An extended version of the best papers were selected to be published in the IADIS International Journal on Computer Science and Information Systems (ISSN: 1646-3692) and/or in the IADIS International Journal on WWW/Internet (ISSN: 1645-7641) and also in other selected journals, including journals from Inderscience. Some of the best papers will be eligible to be extended and enhanced as book chapters for inclusion in a book to be published by IGI Global.

Besides the presentation of full papers, short papers, reflection paper and posters, the conference also included one keynote presentation from an internationally distinguished researcher Professor Helwig Hauser, University of Bergen, Norway.

Keynote presentation

In our emerging information age it becomes increasingly important that we can exploit the wealth of available data for the sake of learning, decision making, as well as for other tasks. A promising approach – not at the least targeted by the new concept of visual analytics in visualization research – is to cleverly integrate the strengths of computers (fast computation, efficient handling of large datasets, comparably low costs, etc.) with the strengths of the users (outstanding perceptual and cognitive capabilities, domain knowledge, etc.). In this talk, we look at one possible solution, originating in visualization research within computer science, i.e., the concept of interactive visual analysis, and describe it as an iterative process, enabling the integration of computational and interactive means for data exploration and analysis. Thinking of interactive visual analysis as an iterative process enables that each step is performed on the basis of a toolbox with computational and interactive visual solutions. In order to substantiate the conceptual aspects of this solution, wealso look at several examples that document the successful application of interactive visual analysis.
