*Call for Papers *

*Special Issue on **Bridging the GAP between Researchers and
Practitioners in Child-Computer Interaction** (Bridging the GAP**)*

*International Journal of Child Computer Interaction *

Deadline for manuscript submissions: *25 January 2018*

Special Issue Information

Young children are exposed to technology more than ever before. The rapid
spreading of affordable handheld devices combined with the continuously
launch of new applications and products as well as new forms of
interaction, e.g. touch and tangible technology, poses new challenges to
practitioners and researchers. This Special Issue aims at bringing together
contributions from cross disciplinary researchers and practitioners in
order to share their experience identifying benefits and constraints
targeting the advance of knowledge in this area. We welcome and encourage
practitioners and researchers working in this cross disciplinary field, to
submit original research articles, case studies, reviews, theoretical and
critical perspectives, and viewpoint articles, including but not limited to:

·        Discussion of future trends and directions in the field of CCI

·   Methods and techniques supporting interaction design and children

·        Creative Technologies and Innovative Interactive Content

·        Transmodality

·        Usability and Playability

·        User-Centered Design

·        Tangible Interfaces

·        Smart Gadgets and Toys

·        Tinkering and Tinker-based Learning

·        Cultural Differences and Game Design

·        Haptic communication

·        Accessible game design

·    Adaptive interfaces for gamers with motor/sensory/cognitive

·        AI for inclusion,

·        Player modelling for inclusion

·        Education for game accessibility

·   Empirical research (quantitative or qualitative methods) on children’s
interaction with technology

·        Trends, policies, and practices for childhood education

·        Technology mediated interactions between family- school

·        Practitioner perspectives

·        Teaching approaches and practical recommendations

·   Industry: Implementing accessibility in games and lessons learned

·        Industry: Barriers for implementing accessibility features

Papers should be 4-8 pages in length. Submissions will be reviewed by
experts in the field invited by the Editors. Acceptances will be sent to
authors by 30 September 2018.

Please submit at:, and select “Bridging the GAP
between Researchers and Practitioners in Child-Computer Interaction” as the
Article Type during the submission process.

The International Journal of Child Computer Interaction has adopted *Virtual
Special Issue* (VSI) policy. The special issue *Bridging the GAP between
Researchers and Practitioners in Child-Computer Interaction *will be
published as VSI. A VSI paper is published as soon as it is accepted in a
regular issue, thus without waiting for other papers to be published
together. The *Virtual Special Issue* spans across multiple physical
issues, but is grouped together on a VSI webpage on ScienceDirect. Once the
first paper is published online, a webpage will be created for the VSI.
