Welcome To The IFIP TC13 Website.

Established in 1989, the International Federation for Information Processing Technical Committee on Human–Computer Interaction (IFIP TC13) is an international committee of 30 member national societies and nine Working Groups, representing specialists in human factors, ergonomics, cognitive science, computer science, design, and related disciplines.
INTERACT is its flagship conference, staged biennially in different countries in the world.

IFIP TC13 aims to develop the science and technology of human–computer interaction (HCI) by encouraging empirical research, promoting the use of knowledge and methods from the human sciences in design and evaluation of computer systems; promoting better understanding of the relationship between formal design methods and system usability and acceptability; developing guidelines, models and methods by which designers may provide better human-oriented computer systems; and, cooperating with other groups, inside and outside IFIP, to promote user-orientation and humanization in system design.
Thus, TC13 seeks to improve interactions between people and computers, encourage the growth of HCI research, and disseminate these benefits worldwide.
