Call for proposals for short courses – IHC – CLIHC’2011

You can already find the official call for papers for the joint conference IHC – CLIHC’2011 that will take place on October 26-28, 2011 in Porto de Galinhas, Pernambuco, Brazil.

I’d also like to share more detailed information about the call for proposals for short courses that will take place in the joint conference IHC – CLIHC’2011.


Short courses or tutorials offer a valuable opportunity for the dissemination of HCI as a whole, considering topics of interest to the community linked to Information Technology and Communication and may address any of the non-exclusive aspects covered by the joint conference theme. They may be targeted at students, professionals and researchers, with durations ranging from one or two 4-hour sessions (morning or afternoon) that run in parallel with the conference program. Accepted Proposals for short courses will be published in the Proceedings of the event and the call for the courses will be posted on this site.

A course proposal must be submitted via the conference submission system EasyChair. Tutorial proposals are limited to 4 pages using the ACM SIGCHI Conference format. The course proposal must be submitted as a single PDF file containing information about the instructor(s): name, affiliation, experience; and about the course: title, brief description, objectives, attractiveness of the subject, content, activity plan, intended audience, duration (half day or full day), and audio/visual needs.

Course proposals will be reviewed by researchers from the community or communities the course targets. Courses will be selected based on quality of presentation, adherence to the conference theme, relevance to the audience, prior experience of the instructor(s), etc.

The conference organizers will provide data projectors and projection screens in the room, assist with room organization (e.g. flip charts for group presentations, arranging room for group activities), and distribute the material to attendees (e.g. print copies of slides for annotation during the course).
