In everyday life, we can easily perform various activities without focused attention.
For example, we can tie our shoelaces or know what the weather is like without consciously thinking about it.
Such activities are performed in our periphery of attention while they may also shift to the center of attention
when relevant. Contrarily, interactive devices such as smartphones usually require focused attention to be interacted with.
Since such devices are becoming omnipresent in our daily environment, we need to explore how to design technology such
that it can engage both the focus and periphery of attention. This direction, which is called “peripheral interaction”,
aims to seamlessly embed computing technology into everyday life.
With computers now becoming truly ubiquitous in everyday life, certain interactions with computing technologies
will inevitably not concern our focus of attention. While various past efforts in this domain aimed to subtly present
information such that people can perceive it in their periphery of attention, we now see an upcoming interest
in interactive systems that people can physically interact with in their periphery of attention.
This special issue aims to unify the various terminologies used and will furthermore try to consolidate motivation
for and framing of the work. This issue aims to enable a platform for a wide academic discussion on peripheral interaction
and its value for embedding HCI in everyday life.

*Topics of Interest*
The special issue welcomes original research papers in the contributions may include but are not limited to:
• Design, human-computer interaction, art and architecture work on technology embedded in the everyday environment
• Issues of embedding computing technology in everyday natural settings, including
• Future visions of interactive system use
• Explorations and evaluations of design for everyday life
• Analysis of challenges and opportunities
• Design and art work involving technology for the everyday
• Explorations of everyday attention management
• Interaction designs for peripheral attention, including
• Eyes free interaction
• Micro interaction
• Implicit interaction
• Peripheral displays
• Auditory displays
• Ambient media
• Awareness systems
• Gesture interfaces
• Inattentive interaction
• Tangible interaction
• Embodied interaction
• New design processes, methodologies, technologies and evaluation approaches for peripheral interaction
• Peripheral interaction for specific contexts and target groups
• Tools and strategies to develop everyday interactive systems
