The Workshop on HCI Education (WEIHC), which will be held during IHC 2020, is the main Brazilian forum where HCI teachers, researchers and students, among others interested in the theme, have the opportunity to discuss, (re)think and share methods and tools for teaching and learning HCI.

In line with IHC 2021, WEIHC this year will be dedicated to “IHC education from Caburaí to Chuí”. The event will use technology to reduce geographic distance, allowing us to appreciate and understand cultural diversity in teaching HCI in Brazil. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, technology is more present than ever, part of our work, education and leisure routines. Technology has also reduced geographical distances, bringing borders and cultures closer together. Thus, at this year’s WEIHC we propose to reflect and discuss cultural diversity and its nuances, and how these differences impact the HCI teaching  in Brazil.

Such reflections may include studies and/or reports in which socio-cultural issues generated different scenarios for teaching HCI and/or fostered teaching practices in partnership with the Industry. Culture shows its diversity in different ways, for example: in the particularities of interactive systems and languages of interaction; users’ intrinsic and extrinsic motivations; in the adoption of teaching methods practiced at the University and/or introduced by the educating person, etc.

In the context of HCI, we encourage submissions that discuss one of the following topics:
 – impacts of social distance in the teaching practice,
 – results from the use of specific models for teaching in this pandemic context,
 – challenges of the online format for teachers and students,
 – alternative and innovative models,
 – learning management systems and other interaction and communication tools,
 – accessibility and inclusion,
 – teacher training and competencies,
 – perspectives for the future and HCI contributions in this scenario,
 – reports of experiences and practices i n partnership with Industry.

We believe that the HCI community has a lot to contribute to the challenge of rethinking teaching practices – whether they are in-person, hybrid or online – based on technologies and interaction and communication models that are adequate and accessible and inclusive interfaces with good usability.

Let’s do this together, in benefit of the evolution of education! We look forward to your reflections and experiences!


We abide by the ACM Code of Ethics. We expect that all submissions, underlying research, and behavior during the review process and conference comply with the principles and responsibilities outlined by the code.


Submissions must be anonymized, may be written either in English or in Portuguese, and must follow the template of the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC). Submissions must contain between 4 to 6 pages (including figures, tables, diagrams, references and annexes). Authors should submit a PDF version of their paper through the JEMS system.

This year we will adopt a new format to stimulate discussion and reflection during the workshop. We understand that the exchange of ideas that take place during the event are of interest to the entire community and we want to make it possible for them to be present in the final version of your paper. Thus, submitted articles that are accepted for presentation will be published only after the WEIHC.

Please note that there will not be a new peer review process for the final version sent after the event and that the maximum number of pages remains at six.


Each submission will be reviewed by at least three HCI researchers. Papers will be selected for publication and presentation based on the quality of the work, the relevance of the experience, and the work’s potential to motivate constructive discussions during the workshop. It is expected that the paper provides arguments about the relevance and implications of its findings to HCI education (preferentially supported by data collected in learning interventions).


Paper presentations during the event will be made via pre-recorded videos, hosted on the conference platform, and later archived on the IHC 2021 channel on YouTube. However, the discussions will be synchronous. Hence, the participation of at least one of the authors in the session is mandatory.

The track coordination will send emails to the authors specifying the details, including the maximum length, video submission format, and other points relevant to the track.

The Resources and Accessibility page presents resources that can be useful in preparing videos, including slide and recording templates using OBS Studio. When preparing the presentation video, follow the recommendations available in: How can I make my pre-recorded presentation more accessible? (available in Portuguese only). Note that due to the virtual format of the IHC 2021, the ability for attendees to understand presentations using only vision or audio is now a requirement. Therefore, all presentations must include subtitles. We have prepared a tutorial to help you with the subtitling process.



At least one of the authors of accepted papers must register to IHC 2021 until October, 10th and present the paper during the workshop (exact time and location to be determined by the organizers). The accepted papers will be published in the Extended Proceedings of IHC 2021.
