Interacting with Computers Special Issue on Intuitive Interaction (March 2014)

Deadline for submission of full papers: 15 March 2014
Website: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/iwc

Special issue on Intuitive Interaction.

Intuitive interaction or intuitive use has been much talked about but until recently not much researched. This issue seeks to bring together the current state of the art in intuitive interaction research, which will then be easily accessible to a wide audience, and will also encourage take-up of principles and ideas for implementing intuitive interaction into user interfaces. Each paper should include a rigorous definition of intuitive interaction or intuitive use (your own or cited from previous work). Intuitive interaction should be the main focus of the research reported in the paper.

Space Architecture: Designing Human Systems Interaction – Session E5.3
25th Symposium On Space Activity & Society, 65th International Astronautical Congress (IAC 2014)

In response to the diversifying needs of users in space exploration and commercial spaceflight, interest in human-machine interfaces has continued to grow in space agencies, industry, and academia. At the same time, the wider individual and societal implications of the human-technology relationship have evolved into a key theme of interdisciplinary engagement with space. This session explores conceptual and applied issues related to the design of human interaction with space systems. In the context of habitats and infrastructure in the space and ground segment, these include interfaces of work stations, consoles, and devices; tools and payload hardware used in EVA and IVA; remote interaction; human-robotic partnerships; ambient intelligence, ubiquitous computing, and beyond.

CHI2014 Workshop: Interaction and Architectural Space (April 2014, Toronto Canada)

Dates: 26-27 April 2014
Location: Toronto, Canada
Website: http://interactioninspaceworkshop.blogspot.com
Deadline for submissions: 10 January 2014

Our awareness of space and its role in the interaction process is becoming more distinct as we move from the earliest two-dimensional graphical user interface, through to games & virtual reality, and now emerging into mobile computing, urban computing, ambient computing, tangible computing and ubiquitous computing.

This workshop will bring together expertise from architecture and human computer interaction to foreground the role of space in the CHI community. We welcome participants from a range of disciplines including architecture, environmental and human factors psychology, computing, HCI, interaction design, digital arts, geography and cognitive science, as they all contribute to research on Interaction in Architectural Space.  As the workshop intends to bring together a community of researchers and designers who are creating interactive technologies in spatial settings, it invites any high-quality contributions relevant to the workshop topic.

Designing Interactive Systems 2014 (June 2014, Vancouver Canada)

Dates: 21-25 June 2014
Location: Vancouver, BC, Canada
Website: http://www.dis2014.org
Deadline for submissions: 19 January 2014, 11:59 PT

The ACM conference on Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) is the premier, international arena where designers, artists, psychologists, user experience researchers, systems engineers and many more come together to debate and shape the future of interactive systems research, design, and practice.

The theme of the conference is “Crafting Design.” We see the confluence of phenomena that may constitute new approaches and new foci in HCI and interaction design. The re-emergence of hand skills is evident in the development of multi-touch and full body interfaces. DIY and Maker cultures have become a widespread phenomenon in which craftsmanship of the maker matters. Wearable computing revisits the use of traditional craft in new way and the (technologically) self-constructed self is another kind of democratic craft. Documentations of the self where we create enduring records of everything from social encounters to our heart-rates become designed vehicles for abstract mirrors of the self.

ICID 2013 – Intl Conf on Interaction Design – Attributes & Expression of Action (December 2013, Xi’an, China)

Dates: 4-6 December 2013
Location: Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an China
Website: www.icidconference.com
Deadline for submissions of abstracts: 7 July 2013

ICID goes back to the basics and looks at the nature of interaction design by exploring its attributes and expression of actions. While interaction design is gaining popularity across the globe, there has not been any clear and agreed upon definition of what it is and how to do it.

Human Work Interaction Design 2012 (Dec 2012, Copenhagen)

Website: https://sites.google.com/site/hwid2012/
Dates: 5–6 December 2012
Location: Copenhagen Business School (CBS), Solbjerg Plads 3, DK-2000 Frederiksberg, Denmark
Deadline for submissions: 1 August 2012.

Theme, Scope and Focus: The HUMAN WORK INTERACTION DESIGN 2012 (HWID 2012) working conference analyzes the combination of empirical Work Analysis and Human computer interaction (HCI).

Human work analysis involves user goals, user requirements, tasks and procedures, human factors, cognitive and physical processes, contexts (organizational, social, cultural). In particular in the HCI and human factors tradition, work is analyzed as end-user tasks
performed within a work domain. The focus is on the user’s experience of tasks (procedures) and the artefact environment (constraints in the work domain). Hierarchical Task Analysis (Annett & Duncan, 1967) and Work Domain Analysis (Salmon, Jenkins, Stanton, & Walker, 2010) are among the methods that can be used to analyse the goal-directed tasks, and map the work environmental constraints and opportunities for behavior. In addition, there is a strong tradition in HCI for studying work with ethnographic methods (Button & Sharrock, 2009) and from socio-technical perspectives (e.g., Nocera, Dunckley, & Sharp, 2007). These approaches focus on work as end-user actions performed together with other people in a field setting, that is, the user’s experience of using systems are social and organizational experiences. User experience, usability and interaction design are influenced by these approaches and techniques for analyzing and interpreting the human work, which eventually manifests in the design of technological products, systems and applications.

The working conference will present current research of human work interaction design and industrial experiences in a wide spectrum of domains such as medical, safety critical systems, e-government, enterprise IT solutions, learning systems, information systems for rural populations, etc. The relevant domains not mentioned here could also be considered.

The purpose of the working conference is to enable practitioners and researchers to analyze the relation between empirical work analysis and HCI/user experience. After the conference, a limited number of selected papers will be published in an IFIP Springer book. We expect the participants will be people from industry and academia with an interest on empirical work analysis, HCI, interaction design and usability and user experience in work situations and at the workplace. The working conference will be conducted in a good social atmosphere that invites to openness and provides time to reflection and discussion about each of the accepted papers and cases.
