Call for Papers

You are here: Home » Call for Papers

We invite you to submit a paper, poster or run a workshop and help us to put together a quality programme packed with opportunities to learn, discuss and network.

Submissions covering all sectors are welcome and we are particularly looking for submissions in these areas:

Interaction design
Practitioner issues.

All accepted full papers, extended abstracts and posters submitted before the October deadline will be published in the conference proceedings. If you are making any type of presentation, you must register to attend the day of your presentation (or the entire conference) and pay the fee. EHF2016 will see the introduction of a new pricing scheme with places available for a day from just £95+VAT.

You will need to read this page about Submitting a Paper carefully.

Full papers

If you are an industrial practitioner with a case study or an academic with some new research and you would like to explore an issue in depth and detail, please consider submitting a full paper. These should be up to six pages long and will be peer reviewed.

Extended abstracts

If you are a researcher or practitioner who has an example of work that may be still in progress, or that provides an interesting case study, you can submit an extended abstract of up to two pages. You could consider a dual presentation with a client of a practical case study.


If you wish to demonstrate and discuss your latest research and developments in progress, you could submit a poster. This could be a practical case study, development of a new tool or innovative idea. You will need to submit a descriptive paper of up to two pages which will be peer reviewed. Posters will be displayed during the ‘Just a Minute’ poster session where you will have one minute to describe your poster to the audience and encourage them to come and discuss it with you.


If you are looking to publicise and trial a new tool or technique, or to brainstorm an idea, or to pass on useful practical information, please consider proposing a workshop. You will need to submit a descriptive paper of up to two pages which will be peer reviewed.

Important dates

You must submit your paper, extended abstract or poster by 2nd October 2015 and you will be notified of reviewers’ decisions by 13th November 2015. A provisional programme will then be published. You must submit your final formatted paper by 4th December 2015.
