WORKSHOP PRESENTATION

MexIHC 2008 is the second edition of the bi-annual Mexican Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction organized by CHI-México. It will be held in conjunction with the Mexican International Conference on Computer Science (ENC) 2008.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for the region of North America, Central America and the Caribbean, thus promoting HCI in this area of the continent. This edition is a continuation of the successful MexIHC 2006, which was celebrated at the Universidad de las Americas, in the city of Puebla, Mexico.

This workshop has two calls, the first one is for English-written papers. Accepted papers will be included in the ENC proceedings, which will be edited by IEEE. The second call is for Spanish and also English-written papers. In this case accepted papers will be included in the digital ENC proceedings which will be edited by the Mexican Society of Computer Science (SMCC).

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

The aim of the workshop is to gather together researchers, teachers, students and professionals from the HCI and related fields, to support scientific and technological exchange, its applications, and to discover the state of HCI in Mexico and the Latin American region, along with identifying the most important areas of current and future work within HCI.

SUBMISSION CATEGORIES
