CHItaly 2015 – In cooperation with ACM SIGCHI Submission deadline extended
to June 5th, 2015

 CHItaly 2015 proceedings will be published in ACM Digital Library within
International Conference Proceedings Series.

 The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit a revised and
extended version of their work for a special issue to be published by the
Springer Journal Multimedia Tools and Applications (I.F. 1.058) with title
“Multimedia for Advanced Human-Computer Interaction”.

 Call for Papers

 The 11th Edition of CHItaly, the biannual Conference of the Italian SIGCHI
Chapter, will be held from 28th to 30th of September 2015 in Rome. Italian
CHI community is very active and smart, and this is its traditional meeting
event. However, nowadays sharing and dissemination are a must. We would
like this venue to represent once more also an occasion to exchange ideas
and experiences with European and overseas researchers and practitioners.
Even for this reason the official language of the conference has always
been English. The theme of the 2015 edition will be “Public, private and
community-based interaction”, which aims at encompassing the different
souls underlying the new trends in HCI, from interaction with public large
displays to interaction with mobile devices, to
crowdsourcing/community-based kinds of interaction. However, the conference
will warmly welcome every innovative contribution regarding advanced
interaction paradigms and models, new ways of interpreting human-computer
interaction and new “natural”, “transparent”, “ubiquitous” and most of all
“inclusive” interfaces. For this reason CHItaly2015 plans to offer
different sessions/tracks to address many types of interests. They will
include full and short research papers, posters, industry presentations,
panels, workshops, tutorials, and a doctoral consortium. As well achieved
by the preceding editions, the aim is to be inclusive and foster
development of innovative work in HCI.

 Topics include but are not limited to: • Public/large displays • Mobility
/ Mobile Accessibility / Mobile Devices • Crowdsourcing as a new frontier
in social/community-based interaction • Social computing • ICT in Social
Development • Interaction Design for Developing Regions • Ubiquitous and
pervasive computing • Design and creation of innovative interfaces •
Multi-Modal Interfaces • Affective HCI, Emotion, Motivational Aspects •
Accessibility and design of Inclusive interaction models and interfaces •
Intelligent interfaces • Smart environments • Augmented Reality and
Tangible User Interfaces • Evaluation Methods / Usability Evaluation •
Model-Based Design of Interactive Systems • Human factors and user
modelling • Cognitive Systems • Brain Computer Interface (BCI) • Human
Computer Confluence (HCC) • Symbiotic Interaction • Cross cultural aspects
of HCI • User Experience design • End-User Development and Adaptation •
Visualization techniques • User Interfaces for Safety Critical Systems •
HCI for e-learning • HCI in industrial applications • Technology in
Healthcare We are glad to anticipate that we will have two very smart
international invited speakers, Keith Cheverst and Kristina Höök, both
involved in the ACM Distinguished Speakers Program. Therefore, save the
