Call for Papers (apologies for multiple postings)

AVI 2016
13th International Working Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces
In cooperation with: ACM-SIGCHI, SIGCHI Italy, SIGWEB, ACM-SIGMM

7-10 June 2016 - Hotel Villa Romanazzi Carducci, Bari, Italy

Since 1992, AVI has been a biannual appointment for a wide international 
community of experts with a broad range of backgrounds. Throughout more 
than two decades, the Conference has attracted leading researchers of 
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) from all over the world, offering a 
forum to present and disseminate new technological results, new 
paradigms, new visions for HCI and user interfaces. Because of advanced 
technology and new possibilities for user interaction, AVI has broadened 
the topics it covers, still keeping its main focus on the conception, 
design, implementation and evaluation of novel visual interfaces.
While rooted in Italy, AVI is a true international conference with 
respect to nationality of participants, authors of papers and program 
committee members. The mixture of carefully selected research 
contributions paired with cordial Italian hospitality creates a unique 
conference atmosphere, which has made AVI an internationally recognized
