i-com – Journal of Interactive Media

Special Issue on New Digital Realities

** Submission Deadline: Feb 8, 2020 **


Digital reality as spectrum of technologies and experiences that digitally
simulate reality in one way or another across most of the senses has made
tremendous advancements in recent years. In particular, we have witnessed
great advances in mixed reality (MR) technologies, such as Virtual Reailty
(VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technology, which provide enormous
potential for application domains like training, simulation, education,
entertainment, health, and sports. However, also other forms of digitally
enhanced reality (XR) supports novel forms of immersion and experiences
while generating, visualizing and interacting with digital content in
virtual environments, and will significantly change the way we work,
travel, play, and communicate. Consequently, we face dramatic changes in
interactive media creation, access, and perception. In this special issue,
we solicit work that addresses novel interaction design, interfaces, and
implementation of new digital reality with a focus on users’ needs, joy,
and visions. Accepted articles will be published in the Journal of
Interactive Media (i-com), sponsored by the HCI Special Interest Group of
the German Association for Informatics. The journal is indexed by Scopus,
among others.
