Call for Papers

Special Issue of the
ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems on INTERACTION WITH SMART OBJECTS

Main submission deadline: November 30th, 2011

http://tiis.acm.org/special-issues.html

AIMS AND SCOPE

"Smart objects" refers to the rapidly growing trend of introducing computing capabilities into everyday objects and places. Well-known examples range from smart kitchen appliances and objects (smart coffee machines, smart knives and cutting boards, ...) to smart meeting rooms and even city-wide infrastructures. Smart objects are mostly fully functional on their own, but value is added by capabilities for communication and distributed reasoning.

While a lot of research has focused on the many technical challenges involved in implementing smart objects, far less research has been conducted on the question of how interaction of users with these objects can be improved, either by leveraging the intelligence in the objects or by other means. Smart objects raise unique challenges and opportunities for designing interaction with intelligent systems: coping with the mostly limited interaction capabilities, exploiting context information to provide more natural interaction, helping the user to understand the behavior and capabilities of the objects ....

This special issue will publish papers that address these issues from a variety of perspectives. The dimensions listed below indicate the range of work that is relevant to the special issue. In case of doubt about the relevance of your topic, please contact the guest editors.

ABOUT ACM TiiS

TiiS (pronounced "T double-eye S") is a recently founded ACM journal for research about intelligent systems that people interact with.  The journal's procedures and infrastructure have been designed to combine the traditional quality and depth of ACM journals with the efficiency and predictability of the best-run conferences. Information on the contents of the inaugural issue is available on the journal's website.


best regards,
  Daniel Schreiber (co-editor)
