This year the Insight Centre for Data Analytics will be hosting the 8th Annual Irish Human Computer Interaction (iHCI) conference in the Helix, Dublin City University on the 1st and 2nd September 2014.  iHCI is Ireland’s leading forum for work in all areas of Human Computer Interaction bringing together practitioners, academics, researchers and students from a wide variety of disciplines including user experience designers, information architects, software engineers, human factors experts, information systems analysts, social scientists and managers. We also welcome perspectives from design, architecture engineering, planning, social science and creative industries among other disciplines.
