The use and role of technology in the business and organizational context has always been at the heart of Human-Computer Interaction since the start of management information systems. In general, HCI research in such context is concerned with the ways humans interact with information, technologies, and tasks in the business, managerial, and organizational contexts. Hence, the focus lies in understanding the relationships and interactions between people (e.g., management, users, implementers, designers, developers, senior executives, and vendors), tasks, contexts, information, and technology. Today, with the explosion of social media, big data and the Internet of Things, new pathways are opening towards this direction, which need to be investigated and exploited.

The 8th International Conference on HCI in Business, Government and Organizations (HCIBGO), an affiliated conference of the HCI International Conference, promotes and supports multidisciplinary dialogue, cross-fertilization of ideas and greater synergies between research, academia and stakeholders in the business, managerial and organizational domain.
