Industrial Track: Putting HCI into Best Practice

The Industrial Track is designed as a means to bring together
practitioners of different industrial areas
(details below, Chair: Horst Krieger).

===========================================

The 6th Symposium of the Workgroup HCI&UE of the Austrian Computer
Society will take place in Carinthia (Southern Austria) this year from
Sept. 16th to Sept. 17th.

The topics are structured alongside (but not limited to) the following
three dimensions:

1) Special user groups (children, elderly, healthcare professionals,
tourists, students, teachers, ...)

2) Issues on practical application of HCI in the work place (process
aspects, HCI patterns, cost/benefit analyses, ...)

3) Future trends in HCI

We encourage and cordially invite authors to submit their original work
related to all topics of HCI and Usability as

a) long papers () 14 pages),

b) short papers (between 8 and 14 pages),

c) posters (2 pages).

Proposals for workshops or special tracks are welcome, too. Accepted
conference papers will be published in Springer Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS).

Templates are provided on the symposium website. Submissions are welcome
under the following URL:

SPECIAL ARRANGEMENTS


***Industrial Track: Putting HCI into Best Practice***

Submissions for the Industrial Track:

We recommend the LNCS stylesheets (Word or Latex) for submissions. There
are no specific length requirements, but the submissions should be
adequate to describe the intended talk.

The spirit of the industrial talks ("management board talks") should be
non-scientific and business oriented - interested companies should
describe case studies, best practices, challenges in their work relating
to HCI / usability. The goal is the exchange of knowledge within and
between both, industrial and scientific communities.

Talk format: 20 minutes + 10 minutes discussion.

Submission and communication language: German and English.

Proceedings: Will be printed in-house and distributed in advance.

Subsequent to a presentation, Round Table discussions can be scheduled,
focusing on cooperation and match making and typically including the
presenter and 5 to 7 interested participants.

Suggestions for possible topics (non-exhaustive):

- Multi-platform delivery / device independence - Rich internet
applications - E-learning systems and content - Simulations - Serious
games - Mobile applications - E-commerce applications and HCI issues -
Web 2.0 and e-learning 2.0 - Tool & Methodology Choices, Tradeoffs,
Decisions - Business Cases on HCI (financial issues, financing issues,
ROI etc.) - Usability issues (how to do it right) - Remote usability
evaluation - Automated usability assessment (experiences / limitations)
- Usability in production environments - Clean Room conditions -
Human-Robot interaction


***Special Issue of JITT***


Authors of high rated papers on e-tourism or related areas will also be
invited to submit an extended version of their work for a special issue
of the Journal of Information Technology and Tourism (JITT,
http://ojs.modul.ac.at/index.php/jitt).


***Free admittance to AAPC 2010***

Attendees of USAB 2010 are entitled to visit the co-located "Alps Adria
