I. Data, Data, Data

The theme for the 2013 HCIC Workshop is all about data. Over the last few years we have seen a change in the kinds of data used in HCI research (e.g., rich sensor data, real-time feeds), the methods for collecting data (e.g., crowd platforms, wikis, apps), and the detail and scale at which data is collected (e.g., rich desktop interactions, web-scale patterns). What are the implications of this for HCI and the societies we serve? Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, big data, data analysis and visualization, new kinds of data, data curation, data ownership and privacy, data integration, missing data, and any other issues you can think of that pertain to how we deal with data in HCI.

Space permitting, we are also open to any wild card topics you would like to submit.

What we would like from you is a 2-3 page extended abstract about what you would like to talk about. Remember that the standard presentation format is a 45-minute talk followed by a 10-minute discussion and then 35 minutes of open discussion. Topics should be appropriate for this framing.

Deadline for submissions is February 22, 2013. Decisions will be made by March 1. Submit your abstract to the workshop co-chairs at

Suggestions for an invited speaker are also welcome. Speakers can come from any organization, and are not limited to HCIC member organizations.

II. Boasters

We invite you to submit a boaster for HCIC 2013. A "boaster" is an eight page or less paper. Boasters will be posted in their entirety at the HCIC web site, but only abstracts will be distributed at the conference. At the opening session of the meeting, all Boaster presenters will be asked to stand, announce their names and provide an overview of their boaster in 45 seconds. This procedure provides a valuable way of getting smaller papers and new authors - especially graduate students - to attend the conference and to interact with the attendees. Historically, we find that the resulting interactions have been beneficial for all concerned.


  1. A cover page with:
    • Title, author(s) (indicate those available to chat at meeting)
    • A one-word keyword
    • A 50 word abstract
  2. A paper of 8 pp. or less.

Deadline for Boasters: Friday, June 7, 2013 (you may upload a boaster after this date, but it will not be part of the printed conference materials)

Directions for Boaster Submission:

Boasters must be submitted online in PDF format at the HCIC web page. All boasters are automatically accepted. There is no review process.

If you have any questions contact the HCIC Webmaster at

Presentation and Attendance Rules

The rules of the consortium state that only employees of member organizations may present major papers. Papers may have non-member co-authors. However the board must approve either attendance or attendance and co-presentation. Obviously, invited speakers are exempt from this rule. Students are not eligible to present a major paper. However, they are strongly encouraged to submit a Boaster.

HCIC Online Paper Archives

All papers and boasters will be posted and archived on the HCIC web site. Additionally, we request that authors and discussants submit their slides to be posted online. Access to the HCIC website and paper archive is limited to member organizations (through IP address or password authentication). The HCIC web site is not indexed by public search engines. If you have any questions or concerns about the online papers archive, please contact Lai Tutt (
