More and more new forms of interactions with machines are part of our reality and shape our interactions and social behaviors. IHC2018 explores the ability to transform, innovate, and create new modes of interaction between people and machines, especially considering accessible, cultural and social aspects. The first edition of IHC was in 1998 with the aim of sharing experiences with researchers from the Human-Computer Interaction (IHC) area in Brazil. Twenty years later, the goal remains the same: to share experiences with researchers, professionals, students, and enthusiasts of the IHC area, seeking to promote and intensify the interest of research in the area. The theme of IHC2018 is "Interaction, Culture, and Creativity". This year we highlight the influence and importance of cultural issues in the design of computer systems, as well as the need to be creative and innovative in designing new forms of interaction, design, and system evaluations. Works that address those themes and others related to HCI are welcome.

Following are some questions that may support the submissions and discussion during IHC2018: How do culture and creativity influence the design and use of interactive technologies? How can technology amplify creative processes in everyday life? What are the ethical, moral, and social issues to consider when designing interactive systems? How does the employment of design and evaluation techniques assist in identifying social and cultural aspects that might influence the human interaction with computer systems?

We invite researchers, industry professionals, teachers and students who work in the various lines of HCI to submit full papers. Submissions must contain an original contribution, not published or submitted for review in another forum.

Full papers submissions should have high-quality and solid academic research findings with clear contributions to the HCI area. Contributions should include relevant and unpublished findings from research projects, case studies, informed discussions, or experiences that provide new evidence on HCI research or application.


Full papers must be no longer than 10 pages (plus references). Submissions must be anonymous, written either in English or Portuguese, and must carefully follow the ACM SIGCHI template (versão 2015).

Authors should pay attention to the reference format, which must contain the full name of each author. Authors must submit their papers in PDF format, via the JEMS system..

Review Process

Submissions will be reviewed by at least three researchers in the HCI area. In case of disparity and inconsistency between reviews, a meta-review process will be conducted to support the final decision. If the submission is accepted, authors must consider reviewers’ comments to prepare the final version of the paper.


Each accepted paper must have at least one registered author to present it in a technical session. Full papers will have 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion.


Accepted Full and Short papers will be published in the Symposium’s proceedings and will be online indexed. The paper publication is subject to the registration of at least one of the authors in the event. The registration of each author entitles the publication of 1 (one) paper. For the publication of more than one paper linked to a same registration, an additional fee no higher than a student registration fee will be charged for each extra paper.
