Interacting with Computers Special Edition: Festschrift for John Long

Festschrift: "a volume of writings by different authors presented as 
a tribute or memorial especially to a scholar"

John Long, Emeritus Professor at UCL, has made a substantial 
contribution as one of the founding fathers of British HCI.

This Special Edition of Interacting with Computers will celebrate 
John's contributions to HCI and showcase strengths of UK HCI 
research. The intention is that the Special Edition will include 
articles from both senior authorities in the field and also the next 
generation of HCI researchers. The Festschrift will include:

- Review articles on HCI areas which have built on, clearly relate 
to, or explicitly contrast with, John's work.
- Capstone articles summarising significant UK HCI contributions and 
relating them to the research angles that emerged in John's work.
- Forward looking articles proposing new theoretical views, research 
agendas, etc. - again, relating them to elements of John's work (e.g. 
his conception of HCI or his focus on work and domain 

Submissions may report or summarise specific research, or review the 
HCI discipline, frameworks and theories more generally. While we do 
not expect John's conceptions of HCI to be adopted in all 
submissions, it is essential that all articles relate their 
contribution to John's research. In particular we welcome articles 
which review and extend frameworks of the HCI discipline that build 
on John's foundations. All submissions will be refereed, taking into 
account both standard reviewing criteria and fit to the SI theme.
