The 9th international conference on Intelligent Human Computer Interaction (IHCI 2017) will be held in Evry, near Paris, France, from 11 to 13 of December 2017.

IHCI allows researchers and practitioners to exchange on recent results in the area of human-computer interaction, related technologies (including signal processing, multimodal analysis, artificial intelligence, machine learning and cognitive modelling) and their applications. The conference will bring together researchers from academia, industry and research organizations from various disciplines, around theoretical, practical and application-oriented contributions.

This year, along with usual topics, IHCI 2017 will focus on human cognition modelling for interaction, including human cognitive process modelling (for task analysis...), human-robot interaction (for companion robots...), cognition for interaction in virtual worlds (for autonomous conversational agents...).

Keynotes will be given by :

  • Pr. Alain Berthoz, Honorary Professor at Collège de France, member of the French Academy of Science and Academy of Technology, on "Simplexity and vicariance. On human cognition principles for man-machine interaction"
  • Pr. Mohamed Chetouani, Professor at Pierre and Marie Curie University, France, on "Interpersonal Human-Human and Human-Robot Interactions",
  • Pr. Antti Oulasvirta, Associate Professor at Aalto University, Finland, on "Can Machines Design? Optimizing User Interfaces for Human Performance".

New: The conference proceedings will be published as an open access volume in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and indexed in the ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index, Scopus, EI Engineering Index, Google Scholar, DBLP, etc.

Papers can be either long papers (10 to 12 pages) or short papers (4 to 6 pages), and must conform to the LNCS templates (see the guidelines for authors).

Papers must be written in English and describe original work that has not been published and is not under review elsewhere.In order to enforce blind reviewing, papers must be made anonymous before submitting (by removing the author’s names and institution from the header).

Important dates:

  • Submission deadline:  June 30, 2017 (final deadline)
  • Decision notification: September 10, 2017 (tentative)
  • Final version due: October 1st, 2017
