Call for Papers

Open call for papers for Special Issue of Interacting with Computers (Oxford University Press) 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.

Scope includes intuitive interaction:
• for the general population
• for older, younger or disabled people
• for other particular groups

Also of interest are:
• methodology around researching intuitive interaction
• how to test products or interfaces for intuitive interaction
• how to design for intuitive interaction
• tools or methods than can be applied by designers or developers to design for intuitive interaction
• other issues relevant to the research, understanding and application of intuitive interaction.

“Interaction” or “use” can include but is not limited to interaction with:
• computers
• interfaces
• games
• products
• systems

Full papers to be submitted online at

Deadline for submission of full papers 15th March 2014
