      Proceedings of HCI 2009 (HCI)
      People and Computers XXIII Celebrating People and Technology
      1 - 5 September 2009


            People and Computers XXIII is the proceedings of the 23rd annual conference of Interaction, a specialist group of the British Computer Society. The conference took place at Churchill College Cambridge, from 1-5 September 2009. Topics addressed include new technology designs with potential for economic or social benefit, original and innovative interactive technologies, advances toward new ways of thinking through theories or models, tools offering understanding and evaluation of interaction design, and novel engagements with technology users or beneficiaries.


            Principal sponsors of HCI 2009 were Microsoft Research, BCS, the University of Cambridge, Vodafone and Red Gate Software.

            HCI 2009 was held in cooperation with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI).

            The 23rd BCS conference on Human Computer Interaction celebrated the people who use technology, the people who create new technologies, and the relationship between them. A centrepiece of the conference was an Open House Festival involving the many Cambridge laboratories and startup companies now creating new displays, devices, games, communications and ubiquitous computing technologies. New developments in HCI depend on technology, and interchange between the communities provided influence in both directions.

            The scientific programme of the conference had a special focus on the priorities of UK and European research. In addition to scientific quality, we emphasised creativity, originality and relevance to real problems. By aligning recognition of the best HCI research with peer review criteria for career development and research funding, HCI 2009 was dedicated to enhancing and supporting the HCI research community.

            HCI 2009 was hosted by Cambridge University and Microsoft Research Cambridge. General chairs were Alan Blackwell (CU) and Ken Wood (MSRC). Keynote speakers included Bill Buxton, author of Sketching User Experiences, and Anthony Dunne, Head of Design Interaction at the Royal College of Art and author of Design Noir: The Secret Life of Electronic Objects.
