HCI 2019 is a Thematic Area of the 21st International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI International 2017), that will be held in Orlando, Florida, USA, 26-31 July 2019, at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.

This Thematic Area addresses challenging and innovative topics in Human-Computer Interaction theory, methodology and practice, including, for example, novel theoretical approaches to interaction, novel user interface concepts and technologies, novel interaction devices, UI development methods, environments and tools, multimodal user interfaces, emotions in HCI, aesthetic issues, HCI and children, evaluation methods and tools, and many others.

HCI is a field in need of significant innovation and breakthroughs towards radically new future forms of interaction. We encourage participation in the HCI Thematic area as a forum for scientific research and innovation in Human-Computer Interaction.
