***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 -
