[Our sincere apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement]


Users' feedback is becoming more and more important in many different
contexts of interaction, such as in recommender systems, social network,
e-democracy, quantified-self, affective computing, and also in the IOT
world. Most of these systems need user feedback for their proper working
(i.e. recommender systems, affective computing based systems, reputation
systems), or because is linked to their inner nature (e-democracy and social
network systems), or for adapting their behaviour according to a specific
user's behaviour while using an object in the real or virtual world (IOT and
user-adaptive systems). Hence stimulating users to provide explicit feedback
becomes an important challenge, especially as users are reluctant to provide
it and using and relying on implicit feedback has its limitations.

The excplit and/or implicit collection of users feedback (opinions, ratings,
likes, physiological states, usage of virtual or tangible objects, etc.) is
a central feature in the the design of such systems, and their design may
have an impact on the way the feedback is collected and interpreted. 

The proposed special issue will focus on the impact of users' feedback and
on how feedback is solicited and ways to encourage/convince users to provide

What can I contribute?

.             Rating scales and their design and evaluation

.             Micro action and their design and evaluation

.             Evaluation of the use of tags, like, emoticons, icons 

.             Gamified approaches for eliciting users feedback

.             Feedback elicitation in Quantified-self context

.             What impacts user feedback in social network

.             What impacts user feedback in IOT, expecially in the term of
physical interaction

.             What impacts user feedback in recommender systems

.             What impacts user feedback in the ubiquitous web

.             What impacts user feedback in the augmented reality

.             Implict modalities for acquiring user feedback: user
observation and monitoring, gaze and gesture detection, emotion detection,
phisiological state detection etc

.             Influence of interaction modalities (e.g. the rating scales
widget, the use of gestures, etc) on the ratings
