2nd Call for papers (extended deadline)
Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments:
Thematic Issue on Playful Interactions and Serious Games

1.  Background
It is with great pleasure that we announce the Thematic Issue on
“Playful Interactions and Serious Games” of the Journal of Ambient
Intelligence and Smart Environments (JAISE).

Intelligent environments and smart applications require creating
engaging interactions with their users, which on one side requires
sensing and understanding human behavior, and on the other side
carefully engineered application interfaces to keep these interactions
sustained and useful over longer periods. Playful interactions and
serious games incorporate elements of play for this purpose. As a
fundamental human activity, play engages people at every age.

This call is intended to solicit contributions from an international
audience on recent developments and experiments that:
•       Present innovative and state-of-the-art applications that use
playful concepts in ambient intelligence settings,
•       Describe game-based solutions to behavior change and pervasive
healthcare problems,
•       Share experiences, insights, best-practices and lessons-learned,
•       Report the results of technical and social evaluations with regards
to playful interaction and serious game design,
•       Report results of longitudinal studies,
•       Discuss and highlight the key challenges and future developments
within the domain.

We are keen to encourage the submission of papers from a wide variety
of backgrounds and perspectives that relate to design and deployment
of playful solutions in both research and industry. Topics sought
include, but are not limited to:
-Playful ambient intelligence applications for kids
-Serious games in healthcare and ambient assisted living
-Urban games and playful interaction with masses
-Games for inducing behavior change
-Psychological and sociological aspects of ambient games
-Hardware and Software for serious games
-Sensors and novel interfaces used in playful interactions.

2. Submission and Proceedings
Papers should be of 12 pages or longer and adhere to the guidelines
given on the Web page:
When submitting, authors should highlight that the submission is for
this particular thematic issue.
