Innovative Ideas and Emerging Results Track

Call for Papers

This year, back to the face-to-face format, the XXI Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computational Systems (IHC 2022) will take place in Diamantina (MG), from October 17th to 21st.

The Innovative Ideas and Emerging Results track has been consolidated at IHC as a space for the presentation of innovative and thought-provoking research in the area of HCI, to accelerate the exposure of the scientific community to new insights and theories, and to promising and inspiring results. It is essential to point out that this is not a track for works in progress or short papers, but innovative, future-oriented research in HCI. The objective is to accelerate the exposure of initial but potentially innovative research results or techniques and perspectives that challenge the status quo in the HCI area.

Attention: If your paper discusses work in progress, at an initial or intermediate stage, with no consolidated results yet, but relevant to the HCI area and of interest to the event, the appropriate track for your submission is Posters and Demonstrations.

The theme of IHC 2022 is “Paths of Interaction”, an invitation to think about how, in its multiple forms and perspectives, interaction has led us and where it can take us. We invite the community to explore the nuances and impacts of the countless possibilities of interaction mediated by technology for different audiences and purposes. Thus, we invite submissions that present their paths and discuss their insights into the directions to be taken in their research,  considering the various topics and methodologies in HCI, which may include:

  • original and innovative technologies, techniques, or prototypes;
  • qualitative or quantitative studies containing a complete analysis;
  • contributions that expand discussions of previous research;
  • notes and reflections that motivate new debates or future works;
  • theoretical or methodological contributions that promote discussions of high relevance to the community.


Submissions must present an original contribution, that was not published in another forum, and is not  under review in other conferences or journals.


Papers submitted to the Innovative Ideas and Emerging Results Track should be 4-6 pages long, excluding references. Submissions can be written in English or Portuguese, and must be anonymous. We recommend that authors consult the article Quick Guide for Anonymous Submission: protect your identity correctly, published in SBC Horizontes, authored by Prof. Mirella Moro.

We strongly recommend using Overleaf’s Latex template (acm-sigconf).

If you prefer, you can work directly with Latex source files.

Optionally, you can use the MS-Word template.

Before submitting the paper, authors must make sure that they meet the following formatting requirements:

  1. Ensure the title is in English only;
  2. Ensure that keywords are only in English;
  3. Ensure that the abstract is in English only and that the section title is defined as “abstract” (and not “resumo”);
  4. Ensure that the “CCS Codes” section is defined according to the ACM standard;
  5. Ensure that there is an “ACM reference format” section, according to the template;
  6. Authors must pay attention to the format of the references, which must contain the full name of each author (according to the template). References are numbered and ordered alphabetically by the last name of the first author.
  7. Ensure that the header of even-numbered pages contains the name/date/place of the event on the left side and names of the authors on the right side (which for submission must be anonymized);
  8. Ensure that the header of the odd-numbered pages contains the title of the paper on the left and name/date/location of the event on the right.


Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format, through the JEMS system.

We strongly encourage authors to pay attention to the accessibility of articles produced in digital format. We recommend using the CHI 2021 Guide for the production of accessible papers and the guide produced by the UNIRIO Accessibility and Usability Center.

Ethical Aspects

By submitting your article, you declare that you are responsible for any aspect of the work involving experiments on people and for conducting it according to ethical research standards and guidelines, including the approval of all relevant bodies, when necessary. We expect all submissions to comply with the ACM Code of Ethics.

To safeguard the rights and dignity of research subjects, when reporting experiments with humans, the papers should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards described in the Regulatory Norms and Guidelines for Research Involving Human Beings – Res. CNS No. 466/2012 and Operational Standard 001/2013 (or, if applicable, the reason why the standard does not apply to your research). We ask you to inform the Ethics Committee approval number (institutional or national), if applicable.

This means that papers must contain a clear statement that the ethical issues that apply in their own country have been followed. We suggest that this content be inserted as a statement in the Methodology section of the paper.

Review Process

Submissions that do not conform to the required submission format, are outside the scope of the symposium, or have been submitted or published in any other forum (conference or journal), will be desk-rejected.

All other work will be reviewed by at least three program committee members.


The presentation of papers during the event will be in person. The track coordinators will send emails to the authors specifying the details, including the maximum duration of the presentation and slide templates.


Accepted papers will be published in the main proceedings of the event and will be indexed in the ACM digital library. The publication is subject to the registration of at least one of the authors and the presentation of the paper during the event.

For the publication of more than one paper linked to the same registration, the publication fee for each additional paper will also be charged.
