The Workshop of Theses and Dissertations in HCI (WTD-IHC) is a forum dedicated to the presentation and discussion of ongoing Masterís and Doctoral research on Human-Computer Interaction and research devoted to improve social interaction and computer-supported collaborative work.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a rich, dynamic environment that:
WTD-IHC submissions must report ongoing research. Researches that are concluded or about to be concluded fall outside the scope of the workshop. The following kinds of work are eligible:
You may submit your research to WTD-IHC even if you plan to submit another version of your work to another IHC2018 track (for instance, full papers or demos). Submissions can be written either in Portuguese or in English.
Authors must submit a .zip file comprising two documents.
Document 1. Cover letter in PDF, containing::
Document 2. Extended abstract (with authorsí names and affiliations), in PDF format, up to 4 pages long, including figures, tables, references and appendices, following the ACM SIGCHI papers (2015), adopted by IHC2018. In this abstract, we expect the following content:
Both documents must compose a single compressed file in .zip format to be submitted via the old version of JEMS system . We will desk-reject submissions that do not follow the .zip format containing the two .pdf files, abstracts that exceed four pages or that do not follow the publication format. Submissions should be accompanied by an e-mail from the supervisor to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, acknowledging the submission and confirming that it fulfills the aforementioned requirements for eligibility at WTD-IHC.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three HCI researchers. In case of conflicts, a senior researcher will do a meta-review to support the final decision. The authors of accepted papers must take into consideration the reviews when preparing the final, camera-ready version of the extended abstract.
The accepted papers will be presented and discussed during WTD-IHC, with invited researchers and members of the program committee. As the workshop consists of a discussion forum for ongoing work, authors must register at the symposium and are expected to actively participate in WTD-IHC, not only presenting their work, but also contributing to their peersí work. The activities and format of the workshop will be announced in time for participants to prepare so as to fully benefit from their participation.
Accepted papers will be published at the IHC2018 Extended Proceedings, as long as the student is registered in IHC2018.
