Dear Colleagues,

Embodied and spatial interaction has gained a lot of attention lately, but
there is little research carried out from multimodal interaction
perspective. In this special issue, we welcome submissions related to
embodied and spatial interaction, which cover any combination of multimodal
interaction means. Articles could relate to design, implementation and
evaluation of multimodal solutions. In particular, we welcome articles which
focus on fusion and fission of different modalities, including
multi-dimensional analysis of multimodal interaction (e.g., combinations of
subjective and objective metrics) in this setting. Other possible topics
include case studies (e.g., system descriptions and evaluation results) of
multimodal embodied and spatial systems, multimodal interaction techniques
for embodied and spatial interaction (e.g., combination of gestural and
spoken interaction), and domain-specific case studies (e.g., embodied and
spatial interaction in industrial settings and healthcare).

In this context, embodied and spatial interaction could be interpreted
rather freely, and interaction can take place both in physical environments
(e.g., build environments) and virtual environments (e.g., virtual reality),
including their combinations. Different interaction means could include
gestures (e.g., mid-air gestures), spoken interaction, haptic feedback, gaze
tracking, motion capture, wearable computing, and human interaction with
IoT-data (among others). From evaluation viewpoint, research on
multi-dimensional analysis (e.g., subjective metrics such as UX
questionnaires, and objective metrics such as log-data and biometric
information) are particularly welcome. Also, embodied and spatial
interaction studies with special user groups (including assistive
technology, people with special needs, ICT4D) are within the scope of this
Special Issue.

This Special Issue aims to provide a collection of high quality research
articles that address challenges in multimodal embodied and spatial
interaction. Both theoretical and applied research studies are welcome, and
practical case studies in different domains are particularly welcome

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and
logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the
submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers
will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the
journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special
issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short
communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract
(about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on
this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be
under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings
papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind
peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for
submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
Multimodal Technologies and Interaction is an international peer-reviewed
open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a
manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared
manuscripts submitted to this issue. Submitted papers should be well
formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing
service prior to publication or during author revisions.
