> Introduction
> 
> 
> With the advancement of the World Wide Web, networked computing has become an essential determinant on how people access and exchange information. The integration of human factors in networked computing has the intrinsic goal of improving the effectiveness of computer-to-human interaction and, ultimately, of human-to-human communication. 
> 
> Motivation
> 
> Whilst the HCI community looks predominantly at the application layer and the telecommunications community at the lower end of the ISO OSI stack, little work has been published in bridging the gap between these two communities. Indeed, the human element is often neglected in Quality of Service negotiation protocols. Not only does this have a negative and undesirable impact on the user> '> s experience of networked computing, it also discards the potential for more economical resource allocation strategies. With the proliferation of ubiquitous multimedia in predominantly bandwidth-constrained environments, more research is needed towards integrating and mapping perceptual/human factors considerations across the protocol stack and building truly end-to-end communication solutions. 
> 
> Research Topics
> 
> The proposed special issue aims to provide a comprehensive synopsis of state-of-the-art research in the area of integrating human factors into network computing, covering both application development and empirical studies in areas such as virtual reality, multi-sensory based computing, ubiquitous communications, personalization and adaptation according to user needs. This special issue solicits innovative papers on the use of computational intelligence techniques and tools for the adaptive management of multimedia communication networks of the future. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
> *	The influence of task, context and device on the user experience of networked computing
> *	Integration of perceptual, haptic and emotional context in networked computing
> *	User centred evaluation of networked computing applications
> *	Physiological and visual monitoring of human indicators in multimedia systems
> *	The impact of cognitive styles and strategies in tailoring of networked content
> *	Distributed virtual reality systems
> *	Adaptation and Personalisation of distributed content according to perceptual needs 
> * End-to-end communication architectures incorporating perceptual requirements
> Submission Format
> 
> All papers will be peer reviewed. Authors are expected to follow the formatting guidelines of the journal which can be found at http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/759/authorinstructions. Please note that for this Special Issue, all submissions should be e-mailed to the guest editors. Submission of a paper implies that it has not been published previously, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that if accepted it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the publisher.
