Welcome to NordiCHI’14 in Helsinki

We are excited and ready to host all the 500+ conference guests in Helsinki. From here you will find up-to-date information on the pre-conference program, the main conference program, the evening events and more.

You will find the conference venues from the following Google maps: (1) Marina Congress Center in Katajanokka district, and (2) School of Arts, Design, and Architecture in Arabia district.

We will provide bus transportation from the city center to Arabia. To get around in the city with public transportation you may find the Journey Planner useful. If you are interested in HCI and service design you may give a try for the Kutsuplus — a new kind of on-demand bus service. More about moving around in Helsinki.

Conference theme 2014: Fun, Fast, Foundational

NordiCHI is the main Nordic forum for human-computer interaction research, with the conference proceedings published in ACM Digital Library. NordiCHI gathers together academics and practitioners to present and discuss challenges and achievements in human-computer interaction from diverse perspectives.

The 2014 conference theme “Fun, Fast, Foundational” applies both to the scientific content of the conference and to your visit to Helsinki.

In the program we have papers and presentations that address designing for positive experiences (such as fun), user-centred design in fast-paced agile development, as well as foundational theories and in-depth insight into the topics of the conference.

We offer you great social program to have some fun outside the conference sessions, fast wireless internet and swift moving between the conference center and hotel, as well as long enough breaks for discussions that form the foundation for future collaboration.
