4th International Browserday
March 29, 2001
Great Hall, Cooper Union, New York City

International Browserday is a chance to redraw the future of communications and knowledge. This year's jury is looking for breakthrough concepts, new ways of seeing, and using the Internet in the undefined context of 21st century design and communications. It is also seeking students of the creative arts (designers, programmers, architects, composers, actors, filmmakers) to challenge existing standards and assumptions.

The competition is open to anyone between the ages of 17-25, or any student enrolled full-time in an undergraduate or graduate program at any college, university or educational institution.

To apply, please email a 200-word description of your vision of a "new" Internet or the future of communications to In your proposal, describe how you would present your vision in three minutes before a live audience of 1,000 people. Entries may be accompanied by a URL, flat art, a digital file of no more than one MB, or a one-minute audio or video tape.

All entries should include: name, school, department or major, advisor, contact information, entry title, proposal of your three-minute presentation.

Entrants may work in groups of up to four people and no person may submit more than two proposals.

bullet.gif IHM-HCI 2001

10-14 September 2001
Lille, France

The conference will cover all main areas of HCI research but will focus on considering the challenges of new applications addressing these themes:

  • enriching HCI by crossing national, linguistic and cultural boundaries
  • achieving greater co-operation between disciplines to deliver usable, useful and exciting design solutions
  • benefiting from experience gained in other application areas
  • transcending interaction constraints through the use of novel technologies supporting mobile users

Submissions on all areas of HCI are invited, but ones addressing the new challenges posed by the following themes are strongly encouraged. Suitable topic areas include: interactive system design; interaction tools & techniques; users with special needs, design issues that cross boundaries (cultural, linguistic, disciplinary); theoretical, organizational, social and cultural issues.

bullet.gif Full Papers

The IHM-HCI 2001 Program Committee invites submission of papers for the Technical Program, for publication in the conference proceedings. Papers must be less than 6,000 words. Diagrams, figures and tables should be used sparingly. IHM-HCI 2001 will accept paper-based and electronic submissions. Electronic submissions must be in PDF format. Submissions should be sent to either of the technical program chairs. Inquiries may also be addressed to the technical program chairs: Jean Vanderdonckt, and Ann Blandford,

bullet.gif Posters & Short Papers

Submissions for posters and short papers are invited, addressing any of the areas identified in the conference topics. Authors are encouraged to demonstrate work in progress and late-breaking research results that show the latest innovative ideas to stimulate audiences. Submissions should be no more than two pages in length, following the format for full papers, indicating whether to be considered as a poster or as a short paper. Electronic submissions should be directed to Philippe Palanque, Hard copy submissions should be directed to David Benyon,

bullet.gif Doctoral Consortium

The doctoral at IHM-HCI 2001 is a forum in which PhD students can present and discuss their work in progress with a panel of experts. Submissions should be in the form of two A4 pages summarizing the student's research program and reporting the work to date. Proposals should be accompanied by a covering letter from the supervisor of the research confirming registration and the start date of the research. Submissions should be sent to either Laurence Nigay, or John Long,

bullet.gif Workshops

Workshops provide a valuable opportunity for small groups to meet and engage in rich and interactive discussions about topics of common interest. Submissions are invited addressing any topic interesting for the HCI community: basic research, applied research, new methodologies, emerging application areas, tools, models and design innovations. Workshops may result in edited books or special issues of journals, and you could aim for that in the design of your workshop.

A workshop may be one, one and a half, or two days in length. We encourage electronic submissions (no more than two pages in PDF format). They should describe goals of the workshop, clear and detailed description of the topics that should be discussed and why they are important and timeliness, and indication of the background of potential participants. They should be sent to both workshop co-chairs: Bertrand David, and Fabio Paterno,

bullet.gif Tutorials

Half or full day tutorials are solicited on any aspect of Human Computer Interaction, but particularly those related to the use of the Internet or new media. Tutorial styles can range from theoretical to practical, and tutorial attendees range from novices to experts. (See Web site for proposal requirements and contact info.)

bullet.gif Panels

Timely and controversial topics on HCI research are solicited for discussion. A good panel will: stimulate thought and discussion on some controversial or emerging issue; involve three to five panelists and a strong moderator/chair; give more opportunity for the audience to become involved in the discussion than in other types of sessions. Novel formats and topics suitable for achieving the above aims are particularly welcome.

Panel proposals up to three pages in length are solicited. They should include: An introduction by the organizer/moderator; position statements from each panelist, brief biographical sketches of all participants.

Inquiries may be addressed to the panels chairs: Christian Bastien, and Steve Brewster,

bullet.gif Interactive Experience

The Interactive Experience is the part of the conference that enables participants to explore the future of user interfaces through hands-on interaction. Entries should consist of live demonstrations of experimental interactive systems, novel user interfaces or interactive art. Systems should preferably be operable by participants with little or no assistance. To submit, send a two-page summary to be included in volume two of the proceedings and a three- to five-page description of the proposed installation, including a detailed list of technical requirements and a presentation of how the system would be experienced by the participants. E-mail submissions (PDF only) are strongly encouraged. Michel Beaudouin-Lafon, and Xristine Faulkner,

bullet.gif Videos

Submissions are invited that show novel user interface designs or systems that demonstrate innovative interaction features or techniques, or give glimpses into the future of HCI. Video tapes will be accepted in either PAL or NTSC formats and will last between two and 20 minutes. Christophe Kolski, and Dr. Leon Watts,

bullet.gif Laboratory And Organizational Overviews

Laboratory and Organizational Overviews provide a forum for HCI research groups in universities or research institutions, and product development teams in IT provider and user organizations (commercial or public sector), to introduce themselves to the wider HCI community, and to share some of the insights, challenges and successes in their work.

Submissions may be paper-based or electronic. Electronic submissions must be in PDF format. Each submission must have the following two parts. (See Web site for details.) Submissions and inquiries should be sent to either: Franck Tarpin-Bernard, or Eamonn O'Neill,
