Call for Papers

The theme of the INTERACT 2009 conference, Research and Practice, addresses the issue of continuity between theory and practice in Human-Computer research. The main focus is on research that is reflected in real-world applications. INTERACT 2009 is an international conference and all submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts. English is the official conference language: all submissions must therefore be in English.
