Tracing the Growth and Impact of the IndiaHCI Conference Series

The IndiaHCI Conference is an annual international event held in various Indian cities, serving as a pivotal gathering for individuals passionate about Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). This conference provides a platform for researchers to converge, fostering interactions aimed at learning, discussing, and advancing issues, ideas, and projects relevant to HCI. 

The IndiaHCI conference was first organized in 2004 and has been regularly organized since 2010. Earlier conferences were organized by groups of volunteers. HCI Professionals Association of India was formed as a not-for-profit organization in 2013, which has since taken over the financial responsibility of the conference. Previous conferences were held in different cities in India, namely Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Delhi, Guwahati, Hyderabad and Dehradun. 

The inaugural IndiaHCI Conference, IndiaHCI 2004,  was organized from 6th-8th December 2004, with crucial support from the Indo-European Systems Usability Partnership project, a non-profit EU Asia IT&C initiative. Since then, the conference has continually expanded its horizons, exploring diverse facets of HCI and maintaining a steadfast commitment to showcasing high-quality research and design professionalism in HCI.

The IndiaHCI Conference represents India's burgeoning interest in HCI. It exemplifies the significance of organizing localized HCI efforts on a global scale. It has continued playing an integral role in propelling the field forward by bringing together researchers, practitioners, and enthusiasts. It has nurtured a rich ecosystem for HCI research and innovation within India and abroad.
