Call for papers: 

Special Issue on Designing for Reflection on Personal Experience 

International Journal of Human-Computer Studies (IJHCS)



Guest Editors: 

Corina Sas (Lancaster University, UK)

Alan Dix (Lancaster University, UK)

The concept of user experience and its increasingly acknowledged role in
understanding usability of technology has paved the way for
experience-based design. In this context, conceptualising the experience
of interaction with technology as a reflective, sense making endeavour
has already started to emerge. Slow design, reflective design,
inquisitive design, and technology as experience are attempts in this
direction which particularly highlight the role of emotions and artistic
representations for inviting reflection. Although reflection is a
required practice in design, we aim to broaden its scope into looking at
how technology should be designed to support people's reflection, when
the object of reflection is personal and directly related to everyday
events in people's lives. 

Designing for reflection on personal experience is an emerging field
capturing the movement from designing for experience as interaction with
technology towards designing for reflection on felt-life experience
captured by technology. This field is positioned at the intersection of
affective sensors, mobile computing, simulated environments,
life-logging and autobiographical memory technologies. However, despite
their potential, there has been surprisingly little research into how
these technologies invite self reflection and support personal sense


This special issue aims to present a set of high-quality, high-impact,
original research outcomes in designing for personal reflection and
provision of support for the development of abilities for self
reflection. We invite contributions relating but not limited to:

*	development and critique of technologies for reflection on
*	design guidelines for developing technology for reflection on
*	design technology for developing and training reflective skills 
*	design technology for assessing and developing emotional
*	methods and instruments for the evaluation of technology for
*	exploration of the role of arts in technology for reflection on
*	motivational and persuasive interfaces for reflection on

This special issue follows from a very successful workshop held a CHI
2009: Designing for Reflection on Experience
<> ) and we now invite
members of the research community to submit original articles covering
these issues.  Although articles must be based on original research,
extended versions of conference papers may be acceptable if they contain
at least 50% new material.  This applies to papers presented at the
recent CHI workshop as well. Complete articles should be submitted by
the deadline of 18 January 2010. Papers will be subject to the full
IJHCS review process, with decisions expected by 19 April 2010.




18 January 2010, 1st full submission
