CALL FOR PAPERS
International Workshop on Enabling User Experience with future Interactive Learning Systems (UXFUL 2010)
http://sgraf.athabascau.ca/UXFUL2010

held in conjunction with USAB 2010: HCI in Work & Learning, Life & Leisure
16 & 17 September 2010
Klagenfurt, Austria

Motivation
**********
Standard Information Systems for learning purposes have matured, technology is stable and masses of information can be made available to the learner. Most educational institutions are already using such learning systems either in a blended or purely online form for delivering parts of courses or fully online courses to their students.

Besides such formal learning systems, we are surrounded by multimodal interfaces which enable the inclusion of all human senses, and mobile, ubiquitous and pervasive technology is available everywhere and at all time. Current research deals with using such new technologies for the purpose of learning, integrating them in current learning systems, and building learning environments where students are provided with more authentic learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. Furthermore, new technologies allow students to interact with the learning environment in more natural and intuitive ways, using multimodal and smart interfaces from various types of devices ranging from mobile phones to smart boards.

The focus of this special workshop is on the provision of enhanced user experience (UX), including making information more useful, usable and enjoyable. This is a challenge for interdisciplinary research on the intersection of Psychology and Computer Science.

This workshop shall bring together researchers and practitioners from Psychology and Computer Science, bridging classic Human-Computer Interaction research (HCI) with Usability Engineering (UE), aiming at bringing clear benefits for learners!


Topics of Interest
******************
Topics include (but are not limited):
• Quasi-Intelligent Learning Objects (QILOS)
• Adaptive Learning Environments (ALEs)
• Multimodal Interfaces for e-Learning (MIeL) and Training (e-Training)
• Mobile, Ubiquitous, and Pervasive Learning and Training Technologies
• Smart Technologies and Interfaces
• Contextual Real-time Interaction in e-Learning
• Psychological Aspects of Multimodal Interfaces
• Cross Media Design and Development
• Accessible Interfaces to Learning and Training Content
• Learning, Teaching and Motivation with didactical innovative e-Learning Concepts


Submission Procedure
********************
Authors are invited to submit papers in the following categories:
• Full papers (14-20 pages)
• Short papers (6-14 pages)
• Posters (4 pages)

The page length includes figures, tables, references and so on. All papers has to be formatted according to the Springer LNCS Style. Please find more information about the formatting guidelines in Section 5.2 at: http://usab-symposium.uni-klu.ac.at/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=46&Itemid=2.

Please submit your paper via email to Sabine Graf at sabineg@athabascau.ca and copy to Andreas Holzinger (andreas.holzinger@medunigraz.at) and Kinshuk (kinshuk@athabascau.ca), using the subject line "UXFUL 2010 - Paper submission".

Accepted papers will be included in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) of the main Symposium, consequently will undergo careful peer review to ensure the highest possible quality. Quality instead of Quantity!
