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 the 20th. IHC is an event classified by CAPES as A3 level. The H5 index of IHC in 2020 was 11. It is the largest national event in the area of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and it has been growing steadily in recent years.

We invite individuals interested in different roles, such as research, teaching, and industry, as well as students, to submit papers to the Research Track that contribute to the scientific development in the area of HCI. Papers in the Research Track are publications that demonstrate original research in the area, and were not published or submitted for review in another forum. High-quality academic research results are expected, with strong contributions to the field. Contributions should include results of studies that provide new evidence on HCI research or application. In the Research Track, papers should present consolidated results of high relevance, proven to be original and appropriately validated, according to the type of method used in the research.

Instructions for Submission

Research track articles must have a maximum of 10 pages, excluding references. Submissions can be written in English or Portuguese and must be anonymous. We strongly recommend using the Overleaf Latex template. If you prefer, you can work directly with the Latex source files. Optionally, you can use the MS-Word template.  When producing your article, we recommend that you consult the article "Quick Guide for Anonymous Submission: Protect Your Identity Correctly,", authored by Professor Mirella Moro and published in SBC Horizons.

Before submitting your article, please ensure that you meet the following formatting requirements:

  1. Ensure that the title is in English only;

  2. Ensure that the keywords are in English only;

  3. Ensure that the abstract is in English only and that the section title is defined as "Abstract" (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, as per the template;

  6. Ensure that the header of even pages contains the name/date/location of the event on the left and the names of the author(s) on the right;

  7. Ensure that the header of odd pages contains the article title on the left and the name/date/location of the event on the right.

Articles must be submitted electronically in PDF format using the JEMS system. By submitting your article, you declare yourself responsible for any aspect of the work involving experiments with people and for conducting it in accordance with research ethics guidelines and standards, including obtaining approval from all relevant bodies where necessary. We strongly encourage you to ensure the accessibility of digitally formatted articles. We recommend using the Guide for Accessible Article Production from CHI 2021 and the Guide produced by the UNIRIO Accessibility and Usability Center .


The IHC Research Track adopts a double-blind review process. Submitted papers must hide the names and affiliations of the authors, and the following rules must be followed: (1) citations to related work by the authors themselves must be written in the third person; (2) the submitted paper 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 paper presents an evolution of a previous work, the reference to that work in the bibliography section may 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. In case of acceptance of the paper, the data must be included in the final version.


We expect all submissions to comply with the ACM Code of Ethics. To safeguard the rights and dignity of research participants, when reporting studies involving humans, it is desirable that papers indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards described in the Regulatory Standards and Guidelines for Research Involving Human Subjects - CNS Res. No. 466/2012, Operational Standard 001/2013, and CNS Res. No. 510/2016 (or, if applicable, the reason why ethical review is waived). In necessary cases, we ask that the approval number from the Ethics Committee (institutional or national) be included in the final version, and that the existence of this number be indicated in the submission version (but suppressed) to preserve anonymity in the review. This means that papers must contain a clear statement that ethical issues that apply to them in their own country have been followed. We suggest that this content be inserted as a statement in the Method section of the paper.

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'23 Research Track, or (3) they have been submitted or published in any other forum (conference or journal). All other works will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. If the submission is accepted, the authors must consider the review comments to prepare the final version of the paper.

In order to improve the review process and interaction between authors submitting their work to IHC'23 and the program committee, we will adopt a new procedure to optimize analysis, discussion, and decision-making:

  • Articles that, after the 1st review and discussion period, have all reviews classified as Weak Accept and/or Strong Accept will be accepted and notified on the date of the 1st Notification;

  • Articles that, after the 1st review and discussion period, have all reviews classified as Weak Reject and/or Strong Reject will be rejected and notified on the date of the 1st Notification;

  • Other articles will be invited to participate in the review and resubmission process (review and resubmit), and the authors will be notified by email. The authors will have access to the reviews and will be able to argue and respond to the questions indicated before the final decision of acceptance or rejection, in addition to preparing a revised version of their articles for resubmission. After a new review and discussion by the reviewers, the articles will be accepted or rejected and notified on the date of the 2nd Notification. To do this, the authors of each submission must:

    1. submit the text of the reply in the specific field on the JEMS submission page, limited to an unformatted text of up to 4,000 characters;

    2. submit a revised version of the article indicating the changes (e.g., yellow highlighting, or text written in blue or red) in PDF format and following all previously defined submission instructions.


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

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