40 years of HCI International. Join us in Washington DC to celebrate


The 12th International Conference on Distributed, Ambient and Pervasive Interactions (DAPI), an affiliated HCII 2024 conference, provides a forum for interaction and exchanges among researchers, academics, and practitioners. DAPI 2024 extends the scope from by now “traditional” configurations of one or several persons interacting with a limited number of smart devices, e.g., in a smart room, towards ubiquitous smart environments like smart cities and smart ecosystems. This implies the contributions of additional disciplines providing more comprehensive perspectives.
