The Special Commission on Human-Computer Interaction (CEIHC) of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) announces a call for a competition that will select and award the best Doctorate, Master's, and Undergraduate works in HCI in the country, defended and approved from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2022 (last 2 years). The competition will award the Junia Coutinho Anacleto Award for Theses, Dissertations, and Undergraduate Works for submissions in each category.

Submissions will compete in a single category (Doctorate, Master's, Undergraduate) and will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  1. Relevance of the investigated problem
  2. Relevance of the results obtained
  3. Advance in the state of the art in HCI
  4. Methodological rigor and ethical responsibility
  5. Originality (of the theme and the solution)
  6. Contributions of the research (scientific, technical, social)
  7. Adequacy to this call


Submissions must be made using the JEMS system. Each submission must include the following mandatory documents (I, II, and III), in pdf format:

  1. Article: a text in Portuguese or English, up to 10 pages excluding references, using the same model adopted for the research paper track. The focus of the text is to present all the research carried out during the master's, doctoral, or undergraduate project. Therefore, the document should not contain only partial results but rather a summarized and critical overview of the entire project. The text must be original, that is, specifically elaborated for the competition, explicitly presenting the following elements:

    • Title and identification: the title of the defended research and authorship (student and advisor(s)) indicating the institution where the work was defended; the title may be different from the defended research if an article has already been published with the same title.

    • Research problem: contextualization and description of the problem investigated in the thesis, dissertation, or scientific initiation/undergraduate thesis.

    • Produced solution: solution (conceptual, methodological, technical, etc.) to the stated research problem.

    • Method: explanation and justification of the adopted method(s) for conducting the research.

    • Results and discussion: synthesis of the obtained results, their implications (for theory and practice), relationships with existing literature, etc.

    • Contributions to the HCI area: defense of the originality, impact, contributions (methodological, state of the art, theoretical, technical) of the research to knowledge in HCI, including research products and sub-products.

    • Ethical considerations: explanation and justification of how ethical issues related to the research were addressed. It is not limited to the mention of approval by the Research Ethics Committee (when applicable), and includes the collection, treatment, and availability of data, care for possible impacts arising from the research and its conduct, concern for the transparency and auditability of the results, dissemination and use of research products, etc.

    • Conclusion: outlining the main conclusions resulting from the research, its limitations, threats to validity, research developments, feasibility of future work, etc.

  2. Full text of the defended thesis, dissertation, or undergraduate work. The full text will essentially serve as a reference source for the research results and details reported in the article.

  3. Proof of approval: scanned copy of the diploma or document (e.g., defense minutes) that proves the defense and approval of the work by the evaluation board

We strongly recommend using Overleaf's Latex template for writing the article.

It is important that the article (Item I) defend the relevance of the theme and results and the main research challenges. The originality and robustness of the method must be evidenced in the text, as well as the ethical issues of the research.

When applicable, also indicate research by-products (e.g., patents, registered programs, public/free domain programs), articles published or accepted for publication, promotional videos, as well as any other elements that help justify the research being considered one of the best in the country in the area of HCI.

Questions can be forwarded directly to the coordination of the Junia Coutinho Anacleto Award.

All research presented in the qualifying phase will receive a Finalist Certificate of the Junia Coutinho Anacleto Award in their respective categories (PhD, Master's, Undergraduate).

After the presentations, the Selection Committee will meet and define the best PhD thesis, the best Master's dissertation, and the best undergraduate work in HCI, which will receive an award certificate.

In addition to the awarding of the best research, the Selection Committee may award Honorable Mentions to research that has stood out in some aspect, such as originality, scientific and technological challenges faced, theoretical and methodological rigor, or social responsibility and impact.

The awards will be presented during IHC'23. The awarded research will be listed on the CEIHC website with a link to their respective articles.

Issues not covered in this call will be addressed by the Selection Committee.
