India HCI 2023, a premier Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) conference hosted by the School of Design (SOD) at UPES Dehradun, successfully concluded its three-day event from November 23rd to 25th, 2023. With a remarkable 14-year history, the conference has been instrumental in advancing Indian HCI on the global stage, maintaining high publication standards through ACM Digital Library and the SCOPUS indexed database.

Over the course of the conference, participants engaged in thought-provoking panel discussions, attended enlightening keynote sessions, and explored diverse tracks such as Arts, Women and HCI, Start-Up, and more. The event facilitated knowledge exchange through courses, workshops, industry case studies, and presentations, showcasing the latest advancements in HCI.

The conference theme is “HCI for Enabling Creativity” and aims to initiate dialogues, debates, and discussions that enable synergies between Creativity and HCI. We invite authors to present bold ideas and research that further expand the boundaries of HCI research.
