Hybrid HCII 2023: Thank you for your participation

HCI International 2023, the 25th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, was held from 23 to 28 July 2023 under the auspices of 21 distinguished international boards of 505 Members from 61 Countries. The conference took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, as a ‘hybrid’ event. The first three days of the conference (23-25 July) comprised virtual only parallel sessions for paper presentations with remote only participation and ‘in-person’ only tutorials and workshops. The Opening Plenary Session (25 July) and the parallel sessions that took place 26-28 July run as hybrid events (i.e. allowing both 'in-person' and remote participation options for presenters and participants).

This year, the impressive number of 2,807 individuals (1,539 virtual and 1,268 in person) from 77 countries registered to participate in this truly international in scope event, where the work of world leaders in the field was presented.

The conference program included:

  • 18 tutorials
  • 3 workshops
  • 352 parallel sessions (162 virtual and 190 hybrid)

Sara Kiesler, University Professor and Hillman Professor Emerita of Computer Science and Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University, and a program director of the National Science Foundation, joined us as the keynote speaker at the Opening Plenary Session. Her keynote entitled: "Research Challenges to Humanizing Cyberspace" was also her acceptance speech for the HCII 2023 award ‘HCI Medal for Societal Impact’.

Prof. Gavriel Salvendy (Major Professor to 68 PhD students) held a Mentoring Session for PhD students with the following important topics: Development of a high impact PhD Dissertation and its effective dissemination; Transition from a PhD student to industry professional; and Transition from a PhD student to successful Faculty.

The ‘HCII Design Café’, a new interactive satellite event coordinated by Christine Riedmann-Streitz, was held ‘in-person’ for the first time during the HCII2023 conference. The focus of the HCII Design Café was on two major challenges:

  • Human-Environment Interactions
  • Sustainable and Resilient Communities

The 47-volumes Conference Proceedings are published by Springer in the LNCS, LNAI and CCIS series, and available on-line through the SpringerLink Digital Library, readily accessible by subscribing libraries. In keeping with the established tradition, HCII 2023 also offered the option of “Late Breaking Work”, both for papers and posters, with the corresponding 9 volumes of the proceedings, currently under preparation, to be published in autumn 2023 in the Springer LNCS and CCIS series. All 56 volumes together will form the full set of the HCII 2023 Conference Proceedings, indexed by a number of services, including: CPCI, part of Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science; Scopus; EI Engineering Index; ACM Digital Library; Google Scholar; DBLP, etc.

Springer also offers for sale on demand all volumes, individually and as a full set (after completion), in soft cover, with a significant discount for authors.
