HCII2013: Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, 21-26 July 2013

The 15th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction will take place at the Mirage Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, 21-26 July 2013.

As one of the world's busiest tourist destinations, the city of Las Vegas offers just about everything – spectacular shows, shops and restaurants, theme park attractions, and the natural beauty of the surrounding lakes, parks and canyons.

Las Vegas Boulevard or the Strip acts as the starting point to explore the city's attractions, most of which are located along the boulevard or within a few blocks from it. These include luxurious and grand mega resorts, museums, fantastic shows, massive shopping malls, theme parks and much more. Towards the north end of the Strip is the downtown area including the Fremont Street, which formed the heart of the city when it was established in 1905.

The Mirage, located on Las Vegas Strip, is recommended as the main hotel of the Conference. Many of the guest rooms offered are available with breathtaking views of the tropical pool, majestic mountains or the Las Vegas Strip. The Mirage, an AAA Four Diamond Award-winning resort, completed a fresh new makeover in August 2008 of all guest rooms.
