The Panel of Research Groups on Human-Computer Interaction (PGPIHC – 2017) aims at promoting the visibility of research groups on HCI in Brazil and partner countries. We also intend to map out these groups, so as to bring them closer to the software industry.

This track will be held in the 16th Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computer Systems (IHC 2017) and it welcomes contributions in all topics related to research in Human-Computer Interaction.


Format and selection

Interested groups must submit through JEMS an extended abstract in PDF, up to three pages long, in the full paper format of ACM SIGCHI (2015). The abstract must contain the main data about the research group, such as:

  • Research group’s name;
  • its objectives;
  • participating universities/research institutions/enterprises
  • participating researchers/developers
  • main projects (both ongoing and finished) and grants/sponsorship received
  • infrastructure for research
  • developed solutions that were/are being adopted by a broader community.
  • interest in partnerships with other research groups.

Submissions will be evaluated by the program committee to certify and verify their relevance to IHC2017. All accepted abstracts will be published in the IHC2017 proceedings.



The invited research groups must present themselves in poster and a video up to 2 minutes long, in free format. The poster must follow the A0 size; it will be presented to all IHC2017 participants in an exclusive session. The video will be exhibited in this session and will be available on the conference website.

We welcome submissions from all HCI-related research groups in Brazil and partner countries!
