The Fifth International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction
(http://symbiotic2016.org/) will take place on the 29th and 30th of
September 2016 and will be hosted by the Human Inspired Technology
Research center of the University of Padua (Italy).

The International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction is the primary
venue to present scientific works dealing with the symbiotic
relationships between humans and computers and to discuss the nature
and implications of such relationship, including ethics. The idea of
symbiotic systems put forward in this workshop capitalizes on the
computers’ ability to implicitly (even subliminally) detect the users’
goals, preferences or/and psycho-physiological states and to modify
its output accordingly. The workshop comes back to Padua this year
after three successful editions in London, Helsinki and Berlin and
extends its scope to qualitative research.

The emphasis is on user-driven research on symbiotic systems, adaptive
systems, implicit input data, physiological computing and BCI, but
also on understanding more deeply the nature of the interdependence
and agency between computers and humans.

Topics regard but are not limited to:
- Multimodal input for symbiotic systems
- Design and evaluation approaches: relevant dimensions for designing
and evaluating a usable and satisfactory symbiotic system
- Context-aware and user-aware adaptive solutions
- Ethic issues and responsibilities (transparency, control, profiling,
agency, …)
- Symbiotic individual and collective behavior and structures
- Applications of symbiotic interaction (traffic, work and
organizations, security, …)
- Transparent visualizations and feedback
- Symbiosis and persuasion
- Intelligent assistants using implicit data
- Recommender systems using implicit data
- Modeling users' affective states
- Prediction of users' goals and information relevance
- User models in collective symbiotic systems
- User's perception of adaptive systems and intelligent interfaces:
trust, blame, performance, facilitation
- Symbiosis in assistive technologies

In addition, the qualitative track of the conference looks for
contributions that aim at addressing the following questions with case
studies where Conversation Analytic/Ethnographic methods are applied:
- In what aspects of the interaction can we see that humans and
machines are a whole ensemble, a hybrid?
- Is any assumption of adaptivity already present in interaction with
regular computers?
- What differentiates interaction with an adaptive or subliminal
system from interaction with a regular computer system?
- How does the user make sense of the changes in an adaptive system?

 ============TYPES OF CONTRIBUTIONS============

Papers
Research papers are complete contributions presenting a conceptual
framework, user studies, systems or techniques in 12 pages format,
including references.  Smaller yet complete works can be submitted as
short papers (6 pages).
All papers must present original, innovative, and forward-looking
research and will undergo a high-quality peer-review process by a
committee of recognized experts.
All papers are to be submitted through
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=symbiotic2016.
Accepted papers will be included in the Springer book of proceedings.

Posters
Work in progress or project presentations are suitable to be submitted
as poster proposals. Provoking and current topics, novel experiences
or prototypes that have not been fully tested but show great promise,
summaries of small-scale studies, techniques, designs, or models are
suitable too.
Posters and demos will have a dedicated session in the conference
program as well as a 1-minute oral presentation in a madness session.
The full poster abstract will be published in adjunct proceedings with
different ISBN number and publisher. Authors, poster title, contact
info will also be referred to in the Springer proceedings as part of
the conference program description.
Poster proposals need to be clear, include authors names and
affiliations, acknowledgments and concise but informative description
and to be sent to symbiotic2016[at]gmail.com (NOT via Easychair).

Demos
Demos should be interactive demonstrations of symbiotic techniques,
systems or designs and should specify exhibition requirements.
Demos will have a dedicated session in the conference program as well
as a 1-minute oral presentation in a madness session. The full demo
abstract will be published in adjunct proceedings with different ISBN
number and publisher. Authors, demo title, contact info will also be
referred to in the Springer proceedings as part of the conference
program description.
Demo proposals need to be clear, include authors names and
affiliations, acknowledgments and concise but informative description
and be sent to symbiotic2016[at]gmail.com (NOT via Easychair).

All submissions need to follow the Springer formatting guidelines.
