Call for Papers

This year, the XXII Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computing Systems (IHC'23) will take place in Maceió (AL) from October 16th to 20th. It is the largest national event in the field of Human-Computer Interaction, classified by CAPES in the A3 Qualis level for the 2017-2020 quadrennium, with an H5 index of 11 in 2020.

We invite educators, extensionists, and industry professionals (public or private sector) who work in the field to submit full papers for the Experience Reports track. It is expected that the papers in this track carefully describe experiences related to the area of HCI, whether in the field of HCI education, the evaluation of user experiences, the adoption of HCI concepts and methods in university extension actions, or experiences in the industry (public or private) with theoretical-methodological foundation in the area.

In their experience report, the authors should characterize the context, the parties involved, and the relevance of the reported experience; they should also be attentive to the quality of the methodological presentation for appropriation by others; in addition, they should enable significant reflections on this experience based on adequate theoretical-methodological foundation. It is expected that the reports submitted to this track are original, therefore, they have not been published or submitted to other forums or media.

Submission Instructions

Articles for the Experiences Track should have up to 10 pages, excluding references. They can be written in English or Portuguese and should be anonymous. We strongly recommend using the Latex model from Overleaf , although it is also possible to work directly with Latex source files. Alternatively, you can use the MS-Word template. When producing your article, we suggest that you consult the text "Quick Guide for Anonymous Submission: Protect Your Identity Correctly,", authored by Prof. Mirella Moro and published in SBC Horizontes.

Before submitting your article, please make sure to comply with the following formatting requirements:

  • ensure that the title is in English only;
  • ensure that the keywords are in English only;
  • ensure that the abstract is in English only and that the section title is defined as "Abstract" (not Resumo);
  • ensure that the "CCS Codes" section is defined according to the ACM standard;
  • ensure that there is an "ACM reference format" section, following the template;
  • ensure that the header of even-numbered pages contains the event name/date/location on the left and the author names on the right;
  • ensure that the header of odd-numbered pages contains the article title on the left and the event name/date/location on the right.

Authors are also encouraged to critically examine their references, history, and methods, striving to avoid and combat different biases in science (e.g., gender, race, ethnicity, social class, disability, etc.).

Articles should be submitted electronically in PDF format using the JEMS system (jems.sbc.org.br - coming soon). By submitting your article, you declare yourself responsible for any ethical aspects related to it, including the approval of all relevant bodies when necessary. We strongly encourage you to ensure the accessibility of the articles produced in digital format. We recommend using the CHI 2021 Guide to Producing Accessible Papers and the Guide produced by the Accessibility and Usability Center at UNIRIO.

For the sake of expediting the publication process, co-authors of an accepted article must fill out forms sent by the publication coordinator on the dates stipulated. Such forms will be sent to the person listed as the main contact and must be answered only once by that same person. Please note the format of the references, which should contain the full names of the authors (following the template). References are numbered and ordered alphabetically by the last name of the first author.


The IHC Experiences Track will adopt a double-blind review process. Submitted articles must hide the names and affiliations of the authors, and the following rules must be followed: (1) citations to related works by the authors themselves must be written in the third person; (2) the submitted article must not mention artifacts in repositories or websites that allow the identification of the authors, or this must be done anonymously; (3) if the submitted article presents an evolution of a previous work, the reference to that work in the bibliographic references section can be anonymized; and (4) reviewers will not be encouraged to search for references that identify the authors in other sources, as searches in digital libraries or existing artifacts do not invalidate the anonymization rules. If the article is accepted, the data must be included in the final version.

Review Process

Submissions will be rejected without review if (1) they do not comply with all submission instructions presented above, (2) they are outside the scope of the IHC'23IHC 2023 Experience Reports Track, or (3) they have been submitted or published in any other forum (conference or journal). All other papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. If the submission is accepted, the authors should consider the review comments to prepare the final version of the paper.

In quantitative terms, reviewers should evaluate each paper according to several criteria, namely:

  • Track adherence. Does the paper adhere to the IHC'23 Experience Reports Track?
  • Contribution to the community. Are the discussions and contributions presented significant to the HCI community and practitioners in the area? Papers submitted to this track do not necessarily need to advance the state of the art/knowledge.
  • Textual presentation quality. Is the paper well-written and appropriately presented in terms of language, content, and format, following the event's standards?
  • Context characterization. Is the context well-characterized, situating the experience in time and space? Is the report presentation well-justified?
  • Reference to related works. Are references provided that value other experiences? Note: Papers submitted to this track do not necessarily need to advance the state of the art/knowledge.
  • Theoretical-methodological foundation. Does the reported experience have an adequate and solid theoretical-methodological foundation?
  • Experience presentation quality. Is the reported experience aligned with the theoretical-methodological foundation? Are the parties involved presented? Are the materials and methods adequately characterized so that other people or groups can re-signify them?
  • Reflections on the experience. Are the discussions consistent with the theoretical-methodological foundation presented? Are they significant enough to provoke revisions/evolution of local practices and/or within the IHC community?

In addition to these criteria, the correct use of the formatting and reference model adopted by the event will also be verified, as well as compliance with ethical aspects.

Although it does not interfere with the final evaluation of the paper, reviewers will also be invited to verify the existence of references to IHC or JIS publications, as well as the adoption of references to relevant works by women, researchers from developing countries (such as the Brazilian Computer Society), and underrepresented groups.


Accepted papers will be published in the event proceedings and indexed in the ACM Digital Library. Publication is conditioned to the registration, in the Professional category, of at least one of the people who participated in the paper's authorship, or when there is no one registered in this category, to the payment of an additional publication fee, in addition to registration. For the publication of more than one paper linked to the same registration, the publication fee will also be charged for each additional paper. Furthermore, publication is also conditioned to the presentation of the paper during the event.

The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions to the Journal of the Brazilian Computer Society (JBCS) or the Journal on Interactive Systems (JIS).
