The 7th International Conference on Distributed, Ambient and Pervasive Interactions (DAPI), an affiliated conference of the HCI International 2019 Conference, provides a forum for interaction and exchanges among researchers, academics, and practitioners in the field of HCI for DAPI environments.

The DAPI conference addresses design approaches for DAPI-Environments, information, Interaction and user experience design for DAPI-Environments, enabling technologies, methods and platforms, and application areas.
