Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

“With very sad and heavy hearts we need to share that the 2020 BCS Human-Computer Interaction Conference will not proceed as planned due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It has been a very difficult decision but one that we have had to make to avoid the travel rearrangements and financial implications that a late cancellation would bring. We apologise to all authors who have submitted papers and confirm that you are free to submit your papers elsewhere or to resubmit to the next BCS HCI conference.

We have explored alternative formats, but with the uncertainty of the situation it has been difficult to make an alternative proposal. We wish to thank our Programme Committee, organising team, volunteers, authors, keynotes and sponsors for their support, hard work and commitment. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the current situation and we sincerely send our best wishes to all.”

Virtual doctoral symposium

Despite the cancellation of the BCS HCI main conference, the BCS HCI doctoral symposium will still go ahead as a virtual event on the 6th July 2020.
