Out of India

Out of India is a curated track at IndiaHCI 2020. Through this track, we aim to showcase some of the best HCI research done in India, which has been presented at premier international venues from September 2019 through October 2020. Over the years, IndiaHCI has been attracting a diverse set of attendees, including students, researchers, industry professionals, and start-ups. The 11th edition of IndiaHCI (IndiaHCI 2020) will be organized as a virtual conference. We are expecting an increase in the number of participants. This presents the authors from India an excellent opportunity to share their published work to a vast audience from India and abroad, socialize with the local HCI community and trigger new collaborations.

We look forward to your virtual participation and presentation at IndiaHCI 2020.


The authors do not need to submit their paper for the review process. Authors will be invited based on their prior record of publication that fulfills the criteria of this track. However, we do welcome suggestions. We request authors to write to us if they believe their prior publication will be a good addition to this track.

Presenting an Out of India Submission at IndiaHCI

  • At least one author of the paper needs to register for the conference by the first week of October.
  • Each presenting author is required to submit a recording of their presentation by 25th October. Since these papers are already published, the presenters can send us the links to their earlier presentations or submit a recorded presentation of 6 minutes.
  • During the conference, the presenting author needs to join the Zoom session to present the paper, interact with the audience, and answer questions.
  • Each paper will get 6 minutes for presentation followed by 1 minute for QnA.
