iHCI 2008 iHCI 2008 was held in University College Cork (UCC). The theme of the conference, "Cultures of Interaction", reflected the continued growth of HCI, which engages with many aspects of human life. While retaining its grounding in the sciences of usability and interaction, HCI was recognised as drawing from the social sciences, arts, and humanities. The theme for the conference reflected the creative brew being concocted by Irish researchers, practitioners, and students engaged with HCI.

iHCI 2007 iHCI'07 was the first one-day conference on the topic of Human-Computer Interaction in Ireland. It was held at the University of Limerick on May 2nd, 2007, and organized by the Interaction Design Centre, University of Limerick. The purpose of this initial meeting was to promote networking and collaboration among academics and practitioners in the broad area of people interacting with technology. Thus, for this first meeting, the focus was on awareness of the range and depth of issues being studied in Ireland, rather than on the presentation of research papers. To this end, iHCI 2007 featured a series brief presentations from a number of interested parties describing their HCI-relevant activities.
