3) Future trends in HCI
We encourage and cordially invite authors to submit their original work
related to all topics of HCI and usability as
a) long papers (> 14 pages),
b) short papers (between 8 and 14 pages),
c) posters (2 pages).
d) Special Thematic Session Papers (same as short papers)

INDUSTRIAL TRACK "Putting HCI into Best Practice":
The Industrial Track is designed as a means to bring together
practitioners of different industrial areas with academia (Chair: Horst
Submissions for the Industrial Track:
We recommend the LNCS stylesheets (Word or LaTex) for submissions. There
are no specific length requirements, but the submissions should be
adequate to describe the intended presentation.
The spirit of the industrial talks ("management board talks") should be
non-scientific and business oriented - interested companies should
describe case studies, best practices, challenges in their work relating
to HCI/usability. The goal is the exchange of knowledge within and
between both, industrial and scientific communities.
Talk format: 20 minutes + 10 minutes discussion.
Submission and communication language: German and English.
Proceedings: Will be printed in-house and distributed in advance.
Subsequent to a presentation, Round Table discussions can be scheduled,
focusing on cooperation and match making and typically including the
presenter and 5 to 7 interested participants.
SPECIAL ISSUE JOURNAL OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND TOURISM
Authors of high rated papers on e-tourism or related areas will also be
invited to submit an extended version of their work for a special issue
of the Journal of Information Technology and Tourism (JITT,
