*2016: last call for special issue and focus section proposals

Interaction Design and Architecture(s) Journal (IxD&A)*

is a well consolidated international "think tank" situated at the
cross-border among Education, Computer Science, Design-Architecture and
Social Innovation that implements the Gold Open Access road to its
content with no charge for authors, see:

IxD&A distinguish itself for the attention toward fore-front and
emerging topic area of the international research and, as well, for its
people centered and experiential vision, see IxD&A archive:
and the list of scheduled issue here below.

IxD&A is now looking for new special issue and focus section proposals
offering the possibility to explore challenging and fore-front subjects
during year 2016.

Only four proposals of special issues and focus sections will be selected.

Next call for special issue and focus section proposals is expected in autumn 2015.

The proposal for a special issue and focus section should contain the following sections:
  1. Introduction & Background -> explain why the subject proposed is a
fore-front and challenging one and describe its expected impact (max 1000 words).
2. Topics of Interest (at least 5).
3. List of guest editors, their affiliation and short bio (max 4, a
larger number should be dutifully justified).
4. Dissemination strategy -> indicate the channels that the proponents
intend to use to distribute the CFP, in parallel to those usually
offered by IxD&A journal.
5. Description of researchers and research groups potentially interested
in submitting a paper with an indication of the expected number of
submissions (max 100 words - list optional).
6. Target audience short description (max 100 words).
7. Indication of the preferred issue: spring, summer, autumn, winter
(note that the important dates are established by the timing of the
IxD&A publication process; have a look at the calls published on the
journal website)

Please note that each special issue should usually contain no more than
8 high quality blindly peer-reviewed paper, while a focus section no more than 5.
In special cases, when among the submitted papers there are more than 8
(or 5) very high-quality ones, the number of accepted papers can be adjusted accordingly.
