Festival of Ideas

We have a range of speakers over two days: one day focused on Algorithmic Accountability and the second on Citizen Science; led by HCI luminaries Ben Shneiderman and Jennifer Preece. As well as intellectual stimulation, also come and experience the amazing natural environment of the area, and of course, to sample some Welsh cakes!

This is an open event and there is no charge, but you must register at this page, to allow us to plan catering.

One Evening of Interactions

  • When: 7 May 2019 at 7pm
  • Where: Glasgow, Scotland, UK
  • Address: The Cinema, Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA), 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow.

This event will present a range of art practices that are concerned with digital/computational interactions. The event has been inspired by Glasgow’s hosting of ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems. The evening will be an opportunity to engage with both the CHI art community and other artists as they present and or perform their work.  The event will include, sound, video, animation, interactive, light, and augmented work. The purpose of the evening is to demonstrate the diverse range of practices that exist within interactive and computational art practices.

UX Foundation Training and Certification Exam

In conjunction with the CHI conference we are offering a UX certification training and examination event on Wednesday May 8. This will feature a ½ day condensed UX training covering the topics in the UX & Usability Foundation course from the UX Qualification Board, followed by an optional 75-minute exam. Those who pass the exam will receive: “UXQB Certified Professional for Usability and User Experience – Foundation Level (CPUX-F)” status, an internationally recognised UX certification.

CHI attendees receive a 15% discount on the cost of the course and exam. Full details and booking at this link.

Interacción 2019

The 20th International Conference on Human Computer Interaction (Interacción 2019), is an international event promoted by AIPO, the Asociación de Interacción Persona-Ordenador and CHISpa, the Spanish chapter of ACM SIGCHI. Its main objective is to promote and disseminate the recent advances in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

Interacción 2019 will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners involved with HCI in Spain and Latin-America, and in other parts of the world. It aims to bring together people interested in any aspect of HCI and Interaction Design, to enable them to share their experiences, exchange their ideas, learn from one another, and promote collaboration in HCI research and development.

International Conference on Conversational User Interfaces

CUI 2019 looks to bring together the ACM SIGCHI and ISCA communities together in looking and speech and text based conversational user interfaces. We have two prominent keynote speakers lined up (Cosmin Munteanu, University of Toronto Mississauga; Susan E Brennan, Stony Brook University) and will have a selection of Showcase presentations from leading researchers in the field.

We have a broad scope of topics for submissions covering a variety of HCI-related topics, including but not limited to: voice user experience, speech interfaces, theory and method development, chatbots, dialogue management, design insight, and multimodality.

Accepted submissions will be published and indexed in the ACM DL. We are accepting 6-8 page Full Papers (April 12th deadline) and 2 page Provocation Papers (May 17th deadline). Head to for full details.


INTERACT conferences are an important platform for researchers and practitioners in the field of human-computer interaction (HCI) to showcase their work. Over the years, the conferences have attracted researchers from several countries and cultures.

European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics

Halfway to the Future 2019

We have confirmed keynotes from some of HCI’s most influential researchers, each of whom anchors a panel that explores the past, present, and future of key areas of interest: Ubiquitous Computing (Yvonne Rogers, UCL); Mixed Reality (Steve Benford, University of Nottingham); Artificial Intelligence, Humans & Machines (Lucy Suchman, Lancaster University, with Alex Taylor, City, University of London); Arts & Design-led Approaches (Bill Gaver, Goldsmiths, University of London); Public & Private Spaces (Christian Heath, King’s College London); and New Approaches to Research & Design (Susanne Bødker, Aarhus University). Our CfP for 6,000-word papers on current work and 2,000-word imaginings of the future of each topic is open until 21 June, 2019.

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the symposium, a wide range of SIGCHI communities can benefit. Specifically we point to the panels organised around topics of concern to a broad CHI audience (Benford, Bødker, Suchman / Taylor), plus strong historic relevances to the CSCW (Heath), Ubicomp (Rogers), and DIS (Gaver) communities. We are striving to make this event as inclusive as possible. Please register expressions of interest at
