Call for Papers


Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computer Systems (IHC 2018). The purpose of the workshops is to provide a forum for exchanging opinions, presenting ideas, and discussing preliminary results in an interactive atmosphere.

Proposals (maximum 4 pages) should include:

  1. Workshop name and a 150- to 200-word abstract describing the workshop, according to the Topics of interest presented on the Symposium Web site;

All the proposals will be judged on their merits, and the best ones will be accepted.
