The HCI International conference is being hosted jointly with three other conferences: 1st International Conference on Universal Access in Human-Computer Interaction; 4th International Conference on Engineering Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics; and the Symposium on Human Interface.

The conference objective is to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of scientific information on theoretical, generic, and applied areas of HCI. This will be accomplished through plenary presentations, 10 parallel sessions, poster sessions, tutorials, and special interest group meetings.

The conference will start with three days of tutorials and will be offered at introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels, covering the entire spectrum of HCI, networking, Web design and use, cognitive ergonomics, and universal access.
