HCI in Practice

Call for Papers

The HCI in Practice Track is aimed at all industrial practitioners, industrial or academic researchers, professors undergrad and graduate students, interested in presenting their experiences with  Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) application in real problems. These experiences may involve technical, commercial, social, management aspects, and the main challenges related to methods and techniques adoption in products and services development. 

It is an interesting opportunity for experience exchange between people who apply HCI in practice, with innovative solutions and trends, aiming for minimizing the gap that commonly exists between theory and practice. Works completed or in progress can be submitted. 

Relevant knowledge gathered by everyday developers’ activities, can be lost because there is no opportunity for writing it down and sharing it. The main goal of this track is to make public a practical knowledge of the industry that was not necessarily systematized by academia. It is desirable that the experiences are based on examples, data and experiences.

Topics of Interest

All topics relevant to HCI practice are expected on this track, including, but not limited to: 

  • IHC Application  in remote experiences; 
  • User-Centered Design in  products and services development; 
  • IHC and business rules; 
  • HCI Integration in processes development; 
  • Quality assessment in User-Centered Processes; 
  • Tools and equipment using in User-Centered Processes; 
  • Assistive technologies, accessibility and inclusion; 
  • Persuasive and Behavior Change Technologies; 
  • Collaborative Technologies.
  • Tecnologias colaborativas.


Submissions must be made in Portuguese or English, by all practitioners, researchers, professors and students, and must report cases and real experiences, relevant to the HCI area, considered successful or failured. 

The HCI in PracticeTrack is looking forward papers reporting any applied HCI experience, its techniques and theories in companies, startups, and partnership projects between the University and Industry, among others. The texts do not need to follow the academic language and can be written in the first person – as long as they respect the formal language writing style, in Portuguese or English. 

Papers must have 5 to 8 pages in the format indicated by the SBC template, including references.

Submissions must be made via the JEMS system and must have the following items :

  • Summary; 
  • Problem description and its context; 
  • Materials and methods adopted; 
  • Target audience delimitation; 
  • Results presentation; 
  • Lessons learned; 
  • Concluding Remarks; 
  • References.


It is noteworthy that the submitted papers must hide the authors’ names and affiliation e, since the process is performed with double-blind review. The submitted paper must not mention the company’s name, artifacts in repositories or websites that allow the authors’ identification. 

Questions about the papers’ preparation according to the anonymization rules can be sent by e-mail to the track committee.

Submission of the Final Version of the Accepted Works

Authors of the accepted papers must send, through the JEMS system, the final document considering the reviewers’ comments and suggestions. This document must follow the same format required in the submission. However, information omitted for the double-blind review process must be included in the final version. 

If the final version is not sent by the deadline, the work will be removed from the track. 

It should be noted that the authors are responsible for the content, and it is up to them to obtain the company authorization for the proposal submission and the case exposition. 

Accepted papers will be published in the extended proceedings of the event and will be indexed in SBC OpenLib.

Approval Criteria

Submissions will be evaluated by three program committee members, considering the problem’s delimitation, solution suitability, the relevance of lessons learned, clarity of exposition, as well as the business and academic contribution. 

We hope, with this track, to provide the experiences’ exchanges between practitioners, researchers, professors and students, interested in presenting the knowledge of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in practice, for increasing the cooperative relationships between the academic and industrial environments.

Symposium Presentation

At least one of the authors of accepted works must register for the Symposium in the Professional Category to orally present in the event technical. Only works presented will be published in the extended proceedings of the symposium. Detailed information about the presentation modalities will be forwarded later to the authors of accepted papers.
