We are hosting the UK HCI 2015 conference in Lincoln

We are delighted to announce that the 29th British Human Computer Interaction Conference (HCI 2015) will be held in Lincoln from 13th-17th July 2015. The conference is organised by LiSC in conjunction with the BCS Interaction Specialist Group.

The theme for HCI 2015 is digital society, and the role interactive technology plays in mediating our civic lives. This is inspired by the 800th anniversary, in 2015, of the sealing of the Magna Carta, an event viewed as an international cornerstone of liberty and that one that challenged society’s relationship with authority. Lincoln is home to one of only four surviving copies of the Magna Carta and will take a major role in the 800th anniversary celebrations coinciding with our hosting of HCI 2015. The theme reflects the increasing public consciousness of how interactive technologies fundamentally affect our privacy, rights, and relationships with authority, government and commerce. Whilst the conference will, of course, welcome contributions from all aspects of HCI research we will particularly encourage submissions of all types that focus on social renewal, activism, democracy, and grassroots innovation.

We plan a number of innovations for HCI 2015 including a large scale doctoral networking event, main track provocative position papers and a 24 hour hack. Please explore how you can participate in HCI2015 using the tabs above. We look forward to seeing you in Lincoln in July 2015!
