The 11th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction was held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, 22-27 July 2005, jointly with the:
- Symposium on Human Interface (Japan) 2005,
- 6th International Conference on Engineering Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics
- 3rd International Conference on Universal Access in Human-Computer Interaction
- 1st International Conference on Virtual Reality
- 1st International Conference on Usability and Internationalization
- 1st International Conference on Online Communities and Social Computing
- 1st International Conference on Augmented Cognition
under the auspices of nine distinguished international boards of more than 200 members from 30 countries.
HCI International 2005 was one of the biggest ever organized in the fields related to Human Computer Interaction and Information Society Technologies, and attracted more than 2300 participants from 63 countries, representing the research and academic communities, as well as the industry.
The Conference Program was organized into nine thematic areas, namely Ergonomics and Health Aspects of Work with Computers, Human Interface and the Management of Information, Human-Computer Interaction, Engineering Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics, Universal Access in Human-Computer Interaction, Virtual Reality, Usability and Internationalization, Online Communities and Social Computing, and Augmented Cognition. The program featured an opening session, 251 parallel paper sessions, 22 tutorials, 271 poster presentations, eleven demonstrations and five Special Interest Groups. Dr. Gerald M. Edelman, Nobel laureate (The Neurosciences Institute, San Diego, California, USA) was the keynote speaker. His keynote address was entitled ‘From Brain Dynamics to Consciousness: A Prelude to the Future of Brain-Based Devices’. During the opening session, a movie premier was also shown, entitled ‘The Future of Augmented Cognition - An Alexander Singer Film’, introduced by Dr. Dylan Schmorrow, DARPA, USA.
The Conference Proceedings have been published in CD-ROM by Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Inc
), and are structured in eleven volumes, entitled: ‘Engineering Psychology, Health and Computer System Design’, ‘The management of Information: E-Business, the Web, and Mobile Computing’, ‘Human-Computer Interfaces: Concepts, New Ideas, Better Usability, and Applications’, ‘Theories Models and Processes in HCI’, ‘Emergent Application Domains in HCI’, ‘Human Factors Issues in Human-Computer Interaction’, ‘Universal Access in HCI: Exploring New Interaction Environments’, ‘Universal Access in HCI: Exploring New Dimensions of Diversity’, ‘Advances in Virtual Environments Technology: Musings on Design, Evaluation, & Applications’, ‘Internationalization, Online Communities and Social Computing: Design and Evaluation’, and ‘Foundations of Augmented Cognition’, and a ‘Posters’ section.
