* ITAP 2016: First CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
* Submission Deadlines:
* July 20, 2016: Full papers
* September 1, 2016: Posters
* ITAP 2016
* International Symposium on Interactive Technology and Ageing
* Kochi, Japan
* October 20 - 22, 2016
ITAP 2016 focuses on coordinating efforts and raise awareness on
interactive technology for ageing populations. We will invite 100 world
class researchers to attend in order to present research findings, discuss
their work, foster collaborations and develop underlying methodological
frameworks, to drive HCI ﬁeld forward. It is the meeting place for
researchers, designers, practitioners, and educators from senior-centred
technology and research communities from all around the world.
FULL PAPERS AND POSTERS

Notification to Authors: 20 August 2016 (11:59pm JST)
Deadline for Posters: 1 September 2016 (11:59pm JST)
Camera-ready deadline: 5 September 2016 (11:59pm JST)
Notification of Posters to Authors: 20 September 2016 (11:59pm JST)
As organized In-Cooperation with ACM SIGCHI, ITAP will consider submissions
related to interactive technology and ageing populations. We encourage
submissions on novel and innovative theory, application and interactions.
We welcome submissions from all topics in ageing populations research that
are relevant to human-computer interaction, including but not limited to
- Understanding people:
This topic is suitable for papers whose primary contribution is improved
understanding of older people or interactional contexts, derived from
quantitative or qualitative empirical research. Core contributions
typically take the form of insightful findings, evolved theories, models,
concepts, or methods, such as games improving well-being of older adults,
TV gesture to improve TV watching experience etc.
- Specific application areas:
This topic will include papers that extend the design and understanding of
applications for older adult user group. Example of application areas can
be health, home, accessibility, gerontology, sustainability, ICT4D, data
visualization, social computing and computer-supported collaborative work,
and visual analytics.
- Human factors:
This topic will focus on papers on practice of designing products, systems,
or processes to take proper account of the interaction between interactive
systems and the old people who use them.
- Input and Interactions:
This topic focuses on new interaction techniques, technologies, and devices
for input and output. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
sensing, actuation, unconventional UIs, touch and multi-touch, 3D
interaction, augmented/mixed/virtual reality, mobile interaction, novel
displays, and devices of different sizes and configurations.
- Usability and user experience:
This topic is suitable for works that extend the knowledge, practices,
methods, components, and tools that make technology more useful, usable,
and desirable. It expects significant works on the basis of their
demonstrable potential for effective reuse and applicability across a range
of application domains or across a range of design, research, and older
Although we are interested in papers on the effects of various theories,
technologies, software, or algorithms on ageing population interaction
experience, technical contributions without clear indications of the impact
on aged people are not within the scope of ITAP.
We encourage the following research submission types:
Full Papers are intended to report stable and completed research. Papers
will be 4-10 pages and will undergo a peer review process. Submitted full
papers should follow the ACM CHI paper. Accepted papers, after presented to
the symposium, will be published in ACM Digital Library. The authors of
selected oral presentations will be invited to a special issue of the
International SCI- or EI- indexed Journal after further revision. Please
note that there is no requirement to anonymize paper submissions and at
least one author of each accepted paper needs to register for the symposium.
We have selected a program committee of experts in human-computer
interaction and ageing people to lead the formal review process. Once your
paper is submitted, it will undergo a double-blind peer review process.
Each paper will be reviewed by three program committee members. If review
scores fall below a threshold, the paper will be rejected. Authors of
accepted paper will then be recommended to make certain changes before the
camera-ready submission and acceptance might be tentative until those
changes are included.
This is a juried submission track that allows attendees to showcase early,
relatively speculative or not yet completed work so that others can know
what they are doing. Authors are required to submit a 1-page poster paper
including author information and a description of the study. Note that:
1. The poster size should be A0 (84.1 x 118.4cm, 33.11 x 46.61 inches).
2. A small desk can be provided on request.
3. There is no AC power supply for poster presenters.
Please also note that there is no requirement to anonymize poster
submissions and at least one author of each accepted paper needs to
register for the symposium.
