11-15 September, 2006
Queen Mary University of London
Deadline: May 5, 2006


There is still time to Engage in HCI 2006, the leading UK conference on usability.

We are now looking for exciting short papers, posters, panel sessions and interactive experiences or tell us about how you practice or study usability.

Deadline for all submissions: 5th May

You could also go for one of the world class tutorials and workshops on a huge range of established and emerging ideas in usability.

More details below and on the web-site:

Short Papers
We invite the submission of high quality short papers from researchers and practitioners reporting late breaking results and work in progress. Short papers have made a lively and stimulating contribution to past HCI conferences and, reflecting this, the best will be published in Volume 1 of the HCI 2006 conference proceedings. All other accepted short papers
will appear in Volume 2 of the proceedings.

We invite you to submit posters addressing any of the conference themes.
Authors are encouraged to demonstrate work in progress and late-breaking
research results that show the latest innovative ideas to stimulate audiences.

Doctoral Consortium
The Consortium is designed for students currently registered for a PhD in
HCI or a related field. It is a great opportunity to engage with the
broader HCI community and get valuable and timely feedback on your research.

The call for panels remains open allowing you an extended opportunity to
create an event to explore a topic within a highly interactive format. We
hope that by extending the call you will have further opportunities for
proposals, the ability to propose late-breaking topics, and have a better
view of candidate panel members.

Interactive Experiences
Interactive Experiences are the home for demonstrations or presentations
involving real systems, prototypes, videos, interactive participations by
conference delegates and interactive surveys. It is a great showcase for
your latest products and prototypes and a great opportunity to test your
ideas with an enthusiastic audience.

Work practices and spaces
These sessions provide a forum for usability groups - private and public -
to promote the work they do. It allows them to introduce their work to the
wider Human-Computer Interaction community and share their insights,
challenges, successes and even failures.

Tutorials and Workshops
Full details of workshops and tutorials are not yet available but details
and contacts will appear on the web-site at the beginning of May.

Engage is the 20th BCS HCI Group conference, in co-operation with ACM.
