Call: British HCI 2015

Call for Papers

British HCI 2015
13th-17th July 2015
Lincoln, UK

The 29th British Human Computer Interaction Conference ( will be held in Lincoln (UK) from 13th-17th July 2015. The conference is organised by the University of Lincoln’s Social Computing (LiSC) research centre in conjunction with the BCS Interaction Specialist Group.

The theme for HCI 2015 is digital society, and the role interactive technology plays in mediating our civic lives. This is inspired by the 800th anniversary, in 2015, of the sealing of the Magna Carta, an event viewed as an international cornerstone of liberty and that one that challenged society’s relationship with authority. Lincoln is home to one of only four surviving copies of the Magna Carta and will take a major role in the 800th anniversary celebrations coinciding with our hosting of HCI 2015. The theme reflects the increasing public consciousness of how interactive technologies fundamentally affect our privacy, rights, and relationships with authority, government and commerce. Whilst the conference will, of course, welcome contributions from all aspects of HCI research we will particularly encourage submissions of all types that focus on social renewal, activism, democracy, and grassroots innovation.

HCI 2015 will feature a number of innovations. The main conference will be single oral track and feature both full papers and a new submission stream of position papers, as well as invited panels and other special sessions. Works-in-Progress will be presented as posters and we will host an interactive demos exhibition. In addition to the traditional workshops that precede the conference we will also host a 24 hour hack and a large scale doctoral student networking event.
