As the upcoming HCI International 2007 Conference in Beijing, P.R. China approaches, it is important that you plan your participation early. Here are a few items you should consider:
Poster sessions will accommodate the presentation of late–breaking scientific and professional news or work in progress.
Extended abstracts (maximum five pages long) of accepted posters will be included in the CD/DVD Proceedings only, to be published by Springer. Authors will also have to prepare their posters, which will be mounted on poster boards. Materials for poster presentation may include multiple single sheets of paper, larger posters, pictures, or any other printed materials.
Posters will be exposed in a dedicated area of the Conference Exhibition Hall from 25 to 27 July 2007. During the opening hours of the Exhibition, the authors will have the opportunity to present their posters to the Conference participants.
An abstract of 300 words should be submitted by Monday, 19 March 2007 through the Conference Management System (CMS) and should include the essence of the planned presentation.Table of Contents | Top of Page

Twenty–two contributions intelligently grouped to cover a variety of areas in HCI, provide an interesting perspective or should I say an Italian perspective on theories and practices of interaction design. Activity, Emotion, Situatedness, Community, Conversation, Memories, Market and In Search of Framework are the 7 parts of this book. Compact chapters help readers to better understand and get familiarized with the topics without getting bored. I found several chapters particularly interesting, including: Participation and Community, Situadedness, Virtual Environments and Haptic Interfaces or Conversations. One might say that some less common terminologies or concepts used in the chapters sometimes make the understanding of the text challenging. However, I think even this complexity along with the philosophical discussions in some sections, generate more thought and make the chapters more interesting. For those who are new to the HCI field the short chapters help readers rapidly learn about a specific topic. The more advanced readers benefit from the variety of the contributions offered. I used several chapters as suggested reading for my HCI courses.
Theories and Practice in Interaction Design, Edited by Sebastiano Bagnara and Gillian Crampton Smith, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Inc. Publishers, 2006, 356 pages. ISBN 0–8058–5618–8Table of Contents | Top of Page
