Call for papers: Whole Body Interaction: Applications, Case Studies, Evaluations and Critical Theory

A special issue of International Journal of Arts and Technology

The field of whole body interaction has recently emerged to take a more holistic view of human computer interaction. It is a research, philosophical and engineering approach to combining several aspects of human computer interaction. Whole body interaction encompasses
  • Physical interaction
  • Physiological state - pulse, breathing, skin conductivity
  • All human senses - including balance, propriocentric sense
  • Cognitive interaction
  • Emotional context
  • Social context
The key factor is an integrated and holistic approach. We consider that no one of these aspects can provide sufficiently rich information to support a fully engaged user experience.

In this call we ask for papers that support whole body interaction. Papers must describe support for interaction scenarios that actively support two or more of the above interaction aspects.

Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
  • Advanced, exemplar application of whole body interaction
  • Critical case studies of whole body interaction
  • Evaluation methods for multi-aspect interaction
  • Critical theory approaches to whole body interaction
Important Date
Submission Deadline: 1 October, 2010
