Dear colleagues and SoniHED participants,

This a reminder that the submission deadline for this CFP is approaching: *20
January 2015*.

*Call for Papers:*

*International Journal of Human Computer Studies*

*Special Issue on Data sonification and sound design in interactive systems

 Guest Editors:
Sandra Pauletto (University of York, UK)
Howard Cambridge (Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI))
Patrick Susini (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique
(IRCAM), Paris)

*(Please note below our special interest in health and environment

In our everyday environment, interactions between objects, human beings and
their environments often produce sounds, which are then used by people
(sometimes unconsciously) to experience the world and learn about it.
Sound design is the process of creating new functional and meaningful
sounds for objects or systems. Sonification is a particular type of sound
design that aims at representing data sets with sound.
Given the intrinsic temporal nature of sound, both sound design and
sonification are well suited to be integrated in interactive systems.
Sound design and sonification are emerging and interdisciplinary fields of
research looking at how we can take advantage of our natural ability to
learn and understand an interactive system through sound.
This special issue aims to present a set of high-quality, high-impact,
original research results in sonification and sound design in interactive
systems and related areas.

Papers illustrating new research directions, innovative approaches, full
evaluations of methods and empirical experiences based on pedagogical,
artistic or industrial projects are welcome.

Depending on the application, effective sound design and sonification can
lead to additional benefits including the potential for pro-environmental
behaviour change and improvements in health and well-being. We particularly
welcome papers on two application domains, health and the environment,
however high quality papers in other application domains will also be

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
- Interactive sonification
- Sonic interaction design
- Sound design for interactive systems and products
- Personalisation and customisation of interactive systems through
sonification and sound design
- Articulation of science and the arts in sonification and sound design for
interactive systems
- Perceptual and cognitive studies of sound design and sonification in
interactive systems
- Emotion and aesthetics in interactive sonification and sound design
- Evaluation methods of sound design and sonification in interactive systems

Articles must be based on original research, although extended versions of
conference papers may be acceptable if they contain at least 50% new

Complete articles should be submitted by the deadline of January 20, 2015.
Papers will be subject to the full IJHCS review process, with decisions
expected by April 20, 2015.
