Call for Papers AVI 2016 (paper sumbission is open)

AVI 2016
International Working Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces
In cooperation with: ACM-SIGCHI, SIGCHI Italy, SIGWEB, ACM-SIGMM

7-10 June 2016 - Hotel Villa Romanazzi Carducci, Bari, Italy

Since 1992, AVI has been a biannual appointment for a wide international community of experts with a broad range of backgrounds. Throughout more than two decades, the Conference has attracted leading researchers of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) from all over the world, offering a forum to present and disseminate new technological results, new paradigms, new visions for HCI and user interfaces. Because of advanced technology and new possibilities for user interaction, AVI has broadened the topics it covers, still keeping its main focus on the conception, design, implementation and evaluation of novel visual interfaces.
While rooted in Italy, AVI is a true international conference with respect to nationality of participants, authors of papers and program committee members. The mixture of carefully selected research contributions paired with cordial Italian hospitality creates a unique conference atmosphere, which has made AVI an internationally recognized brand.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following ones:
Adaptive and Context-Aware Interfaces
Full-body Interaction
Information Visualization
Interaction Design Tools
Interface Metaphors
Interfaces for Big Data
Interfaces for e-Commerce and e-Branding
Interfaces for e-Culture and e-Tourism
Interfaces for End-User Development
Interfaces for i-TV
Interfaces for Recommender Systems
Interfaces for Social Interaction and Cooperation
