hci-ta-program-board: Program Board for Human Computer Interaction Thematic Area

[Activity plan]

Human Computer Interaction Thematic Area (HCI-TA) is one of the conferences that constitute Human Computer Interaction International conference for promoting the research and development activities in the broad field of HCI. Every year, about 2,000-3,000 researchers and practitioners come together to the conference for presenting and exchanging ideas.

HCI-TA has a program board to plan and organize sessions, especially in the new field of HCI. Also, it is to expand the activity by inviting may session organizers from various countries. HCI-TA is expected to ask session organizers to collect and review papers so that the quality of conference can be maintained. Furthermore, HCI-TA has to select one paper from all submitted papers for the best paper award. HCI-TA is expected to be involved in other optional activities, for example, to propose the next conference venue.

This mailing list will be created so that the communication among program board members can be facilitated and be activated. Previously, the general conference secretary office located in Crete, Greece handled some part of it. But now, the program board is required to be more involved in the activity for the conference. This leads to the necessity for more convenient way of communication among us than separate emails. As a conference chair of HCI-TA, I thought of organizing a mailing list of program board for those purposes.

[Use of Mailing List]

Because the activity of program board will be triggered based on the necessity of certain actions, the use of mailing list will not be evenly dispersed. When some necessity will occur, it will be used frequently, and otherwise it will not be used frequently.


Membership of this mailing list is limited only to the program board members. Currently, the committee include following professionals, but maybe some more members will join us.
