The field of Whole Body Interaction has recently emerged to take a more holistic view of Human Computer Interaction. It is a research, philosophical and engineering approach to combining several aspects of human computer interaction. Whole Body Interaction encompasses


-       Physical Interaction

-       Physiological state  pulse, breathing, skin conductivity

-       All human senses  including balance, propriocentric sense

-       Cognitive Interaction

-       Emotional context

-       Social Context


The key factor is an integrated and holistic approach. We consider that no one of these aspects can provide sufficiently rich information to support a fully engaged user experience.

In this call we ask for technical papers that support Whole Body Interaction. The papers must describe support for interaction scenarios that actively support two or more of the above interaction aspects.  Papers on topics such as

-       Frameworks for whole body interaction

-       Progamming toolkits for whole body interaction

-       Technical and performance evaluations of whole body interaction scenarios

-       Engineering papers on Whole Body Interaction

Papers should follow the format described at Papers should describe novel material and not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers describing, case studies, applications and evaluations of Whole Body Interaction should see the separate call for the IJART (
