Event Date/Time: Jul 09, 2001
End Date/Time: Jul 13, 2001
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is about theories, methods and tools that relate to the design, development, evaluation and use of human-oriented computer-based systems; and that enhance and support human work and activity, especially in terms of reliability, usability, acceptability and user satisfaction.
This is the first time that INTERACT will be held in the Asian region.There will be more chances than ever before that research and development activities in Western countries will meet with those in Eastern countries. Many people from the Asia Pacific region, as well as from Europe, America and other regions of the world, are expected to participate in the conference making it a truly world-wide HCI conference.
CONFERENCE TOPICS Contributions which advance the theory or practice of various HCI perspectives are welcomed. The review policy is to support innovative research and development activities from academia, research and practice.
