ABOUT THIS EVENT
INTERACT 2023 is the 19th International Conference of Technical Committee 13 (Human-
Computer Interaction) of IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing).
The INTERACT Conference is held every two years. It started in 1984, making it one of the longest running conferences on human-computer interaction.
The INTERACT 2023 will be both in-person and online.
The theme of the 19th conference is “Design for Equality and Justice”. Increasingly
computer science as a discipline is becoming concerned about issues of justice and equality
– from fake news to rights for robots, from the ethics of driverless vehicles to the gamergate
The HCI community is surely well placed to be at the leading edge of such discussions within the wider computer science community and in the dialogue between computer science and the broader society.
Justice and equality are both particularly important concepts both for the City of York and the University of York. The City of York, has a long history of working for justice and equality.
York has a long history of working for justice and equality, from the Quakers and their philanthropiic chocolate companies, to current initiatives:
York continues to work for justice and equality to this day. It is the UK’s first Human Rights City, encouraging organizations and citizens to “increasingly think about human rights, talk about human rights issues and stand up for rights whether that’s at work, school or home”.
The City of York has also launched “One Planet York” , a network of organisations working towards a more sustainable, resilient and collaborative “one planet” future.
York is now working to become the first “Zero emissions” city centre, with much of the medieval centre already car free.
