  Sustainable, empowering and emotional interactive multimedia This Special
Issue is inspired by but not limited to the 2019 Edition of CHItaly, the
biannual Conference of the Italian SIGCHI Chapter, held from 23-25
September 2019 in Padova, Italy, and will also include a selection of the
best papers presented. We also expect high quality contributions from
authors that did not attend the conference, who are more than welcome to
submit their proposals.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 Innovative, user-centered interaction paradigms and models
 Augmented and virtual reality for emotionally engaging multimedia
 Responsible design of multimedia as a symbiotic part of body and mind
 Natural and ubiquitous interfaces
 Human in the loop of design of advanced multimedia
 Multimedia for public engagement
 Multimedia to couple cognitive and emotional experience
 Multimedia solutions for smart ambient and smart city
 Inclusive multimedia for people with special needs
 New interactive paradigms to augment users’ knowledge and engagement with
cultural heritage
 Transformative, motivating, empowering multimedia applications for
healthcare and a better lifestyle.

Important Dates/Tentative schedule
*Submission deadline: April 15 2020 (extended!)*
Final Manuscript due: July 10 2020

Submission Guidelines Authors should prepare their manuscript according to
the Instructions for Authors available from the Multimedia Tools and
Applications website.
Authors should submit through the online submission site at and select “SI 1153T -
Sustainable, empowering and emotional interactive multimedia” when they
reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process.
Submitted papers should present original, unpublished work, relevant to one
of the topics of the Special Issue. All submitted papers will be evaluated
on the basis of relevance, significance of contribution, technical quality,
scholarship, and quality of presentation, by at least three independent
reviewers. It is the policy of the journal that no submission, or
substantially overlapping submission, be published or be under review at
another journal or conference at any time during the review process Please
note that the authors of papers presented at CHItaly 2019 are invited to
submit an extended version of their contributions by taking into
consideration both the reviewers’ comments on their conference paper, and
the feedback received during presentation at the conference. It is worth
clarifying that the extended version is expected to contain at least 30%
original scientific contribution, e.g., in the form of new algorithms,
experiments or qualitative/quantitative comparisons, and that neither
verbatim transfer of large parts of the conference paper nor reproduction
of already published figures will be tolerated. The extended versions of
CHItaly papers will undergo the ordinary review process, and be accepted
only if well-suited to the topic of this special issue and meeting the
scientific level of the journal.
