WaterHCI (Water-Human-Computer Interaction)
is a field of study and practice focusing on the design and creation of interactive devices, systems, and experiences at the intersection of water, humans, and technology.  It is a relatively new field that originated in Ontario, Canada, in the 1960s, and was further developed at University of Toronto through a series of annual (de)conferences from 1998 to present.

This year, at our 24th annual WaterHCI (de)conference, we focus our attention on ideas for creating spaces and places (e.g. Ontario-Placemaking\tma) that combine fun and frolic with health and wellbeing, nature and spirituality, research and teaching, and innovation, where we can touch and be touched by water.
