SPECIAL ISSUE OF PERSONAL AND UBIQUITOUS COMPUTING ON TANGIBLES FOR CHILDREN

http://soc.kuleuven.be/com/mediac/cuo/extern/tcube/cfp.html

Guest editors: Bieke Zaman, Vero Vanden Abeele, Panos Markopoulos, Paul Marshall

EXTENDED DEADLINE: Sunday, 11th October 2009

CALL FOR JOURNAL PAPERS:

In recent years, research on tangible interaction has grown steadily. A
significant proportion of this work involves children and aims to offer
benefits related to ease of use and overall user experience, while also
supporting learning and developmental processes. However, research on
tangible interaction lacks solid evidence to support the assumed positive
effects.

This call for papers for a special issue is associated with a workshop that
was held at CHI 2009 on the same topic. It will focus on the challenges of,
and opportunities for designing and evaluating likeable, useable and/or
educational tangibles with and for children. It will bring together research
on tangibles, design and evaluation methods with children and the benefits
and costs of tangible interaction.

Our goal is to foster a critical attitude to the theoretical underpinnings,
design and evaluation of tangible interfaces for children. We welcome
attempts to introduce rigorous contributions to this debate and aim to
collect exemplary cases of evaluations of tangible interfaces, as well as
studies that shed light on methodologies for evaluating tangible interfaces
with children.

More particularly, topics of interest to this special issue include (but are
not limited to):

- Learning, usability and other benefits of tangibility
- Theory on (methods for) tangible interfaces
- Potential novel or enhanced interaction techniques that relate to better
user experiences for the users of tangible interfaces
- Empirical evidence for the assumed benefits (and costs) of tangibility
- Techniques for designing tangibles that are adapted to children’s needs
and capabilities
- Appropriate evaluation methods for assessing the benefits of tangibles
with children
- Theoretical considerations on how the field of tangibility might evolve
