INTERACCIÓN-NUI 2015 : Special Track: Natural User Interfaces
Call For Papers
XVI International Conference on Human Computer Interaction. Interacción 2015
Special track: Natural User Interfaces
7-9 September 2015, Vilanova i la Geltrú, Spain
Special track leaders: Cristina-Manresa Yee (University of Balearic Islands) and Ann Morrison (Aalborg University)
Since computers appeared, researchers have been conceiving new forms of interaction between people and machines. In the early stages of computer science, interaction was achieved through buttons and dials, but advancements in technology enable us to design and develop more intuitive and engaging user interfaces which can improve the effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction of the user.
Natural user interaction enables users to interact with a machine using nothing else but the human body. Users operate through intuitive actions by using gestures, touch, haptics, speech or even biosignals. There is a broad array of devices and interaction paradigm possibilities.
In this call, we are especially interested in vision based interfaces (VBI) and in interfaces which involve touch and haptics from both solo and multiple participants. On the one hand, vision based interfaces perceive the user and her/his actions and use the visual information for interaction purposes. On the other, touch and haptic interfaces exchange information with the machine and the participants through the sense of touch, enabling a very different experience and trade.
Topics of interest:
We invite submissions that deal with issues including, but not limited to:
- Applications and integration of context for NUI
- Challenges related to natural interaction
- Design and development of NUI
- Usability evaluation (metrics, test methods) of NUI
- Encourage discussion, collaboration and future working partnerships on natural user interfaces.
- Publish research, theory, practice and validation in the field of natural interaction with special attention to VBI and touch and haptic interfaces.
Expected audience and outcomes:
A broad audience is warmly invited to attend and contribute with their knowledge and experience to the Special Track. The invitation is extended, but not limited to academics, researchers, industrialists and professionals working with natural user interfaces.
This special track aims to encourage discussion, collaboration, future working partnerships and to publish research, theory, practice and validation in the field of natural interaction, specifically on VBI and touch and haptic interfaces, within different application areas.
Submission Deadline: April 8
