From September 8 to 11, 2019, the conference “Mensch und Computer 2009” took place in Hamburg under the motto “New Digital Realities”. The scientific conference Mensch-Computer-Interaction (MCI) and the practical conference UP – Usability Professionals are combined under the umbrella of the conference. Within the scope of lectures, workshops, tutorials, exhibitions and demonstrations there were various opportunities to present the current state of research and to discuss with like-minded people from research and practice. In total, almost 1,000 participants from science and industry attended the conference. The program included 3 keynotes, 38 full papers, 10 Invited Talks of excellent ACM CHI papers, 78 short papers and posters, 28 workshops, 8 tutorials and 3 CPUX certification exams.
