10th anniversary of HCI in Brazil October 26, 2008

Posted by Levi in Talking.

Last week we had the Brazilian Symposium of Human Factors on Computer Systems (more known as ‘IHC’). The event was held at the Pontificia Universidade Catolica do Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS) and celebrated the 10th anniversary of HCI events in Brazil.

Keynote speeches were given by Mary Czerwinsky (Principal Researcher and Manager, Microsoft Research Visualization & Interaction Research Group) and Regina Bernhaupt (Assistant Professor, University of Salzburg, Austria).

Victor and I presented CESAR’s Lab to the HCI community and talked about our experience in integrating usability methods into confidential projects protected by non-disclosure agreements.

One funny moment happened when Professor Milene Silveira (PUCRS) – who impeccably organized the event – was trying to begin her presentation and a salsa started from nobody knows where :)

I also had the chance to be part of the committee for the Evaluation Competition category. By the way, congratulations to the team of the Universidade de Fortaleza!

IHC’08 was a unique opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. My best wishes for everyone who attended the event!
