HCI 2016 - Fusion!
Proceedings of the 30th International BCS Human Computer Interaction Conference (HCI 2016)
Bournemouth University, Poole, UK, 11 - 15 July 2016
The 30th International BCS Human Computer Interaction Conference was organised by the Department of Computing & Informatics and the Department of Psychology at Bournemouth University, in conjunction with BCS The Chartered Institute for IT. The conference was held at Bournemouth University’s Talbot Campus in Poole from 11th July to 15th July 2016.
The conference theme was ‘Fusion’ - a concept well aligned with HCI as a subject area, which fuses methods, ideas, and concepts from different disciplines. In choosing this theme, we challenged the HCI community to demonstrate how fusion is reflected in their own work, and how co-creation and co-production from different perspectives generates ideas that might never have been envisaged independently. We believe the community rose to this challenge, and our technical programme included papers in a wide variety of topics such as non-Human Computer Interaction, Influence & Persuasion, UX & Sustainability, and Privacy & Culture.
In keeping with the conference theme, we organised a panel examining the role of fusion in performing interaction, and organised a ‘fused’ conference reception merging poster presentations of the latest and greatest HCI research with a curated collection of Interaction Gallery installations. We also gave delegates an opportunity to sample the best of what this corner of Dorset has to offer, such as cream tea and scones in coffee breaks, local craft beer in the conference reception, and a beach walk along one of the most beautiful coastlines in the country.
These proceedings are a product of a great deal of effort by the authors who graciously submitted their best work, together with the chairs and the programme committees from the different tracks who took great care in providing thorough, thoughtful, and timely feedback. We would like to thank everyone for all of their hard work, and we hope you enjoy reading the fruits of this labour.
