The deadline for proposal submissions to the following special issue in 
the HCI Journal is fast approaching.

====Guiding the Conversation: New Theory and Design Perspectives for
Conversational User Interfaces===
===Special Issue of Human Computer Interaction Journal===


Conversational speech and text-based interfaces are growing in
popularity, through the increased uptake of speech systems like Amazon
Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant. We have also seen the proliferation
of chatbot interfaces in service contexts. This special issue aims to
start building further critical mass around research on user-centric
issues in CUI interaction, specifically investigating how theory,
methods and empirical research can inform the development, understanding
and design of CUIs.  It aims to serve as a catalyst for new data-driven
insights, interaction paradigms, and theoretical viewpoints, for HCI
researchers interested in this growing area of study. For this special
issue, conversational interfaces are broadly defined, including
task-based as well as social, conversational and companion-based
interactions through text, speech and multimodal interaction.

We encourage submissions that include, but are not limited to the
following topics:
•    Design paradigms, metaphors & use case
•    Evaluation techniques and metrics
•    Theories of interaction & dialogue
•    Encouraging prototyping & innovation
•    Ethics, privacy & trust

We encourage papers that present original and rigorous research in these
areas, especially cross disciplinary investigations that include speech
and language-based disciplines.

===Proposal Submission Instructions===
We ask interested authors to submit an initial proposal to the special
issue. Initial proposals should be about 1000 words and provide a clear
indication of what the paper is about.

Note that you must use the
template provided 

Proposals should be
submitted on the HCI Editorial site. Proposals will be
evaluated for relevance to the special issue theme, and guidance will be
given. Accepted proposal will then be invited to submit a full paper

For questions and queries about the special issue, please email
