Tangible Meets Gestural - MDPI Special Issue on Tangible Gesture Interaction

This special issue on the MDPI Open Access Journal aims at comparing 
tangible interaction, gestural interaction and tangible gesture 
interaction paradigms. Contribution to this special issue is encouraged 
from different research backgrounds (design, engineering, computing, 
arts, social sciences, neurosciences, ergonomics, etc.). Submissions are 
particularly encouraged from, but not limited to, the participants to 
the 1st International Workshop on Tangible Gesture Interaction 
(, held during the 9th International 
Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction (TEI 2015).

Deadline:  *June 15, 2015*

*Expected contributions*

“Tangible Meets Gestural” is a special issue that aims at comparing 
tangible interaction, gestural interaction and tangible gesture 
interaction paradigms. In particular, this special issue aims at 
investigating how tangible interaction and gestural interaction can be 
blended into a richer interaction paradigm that exploits at the same 
time our ability to communicate through gestures and our ability to 
manipulate objects of the real world. Because of the novelty of the 
field, many implications for the design of tangible gesture interactive 
systems are still unexplored and need to be discussed. Appropriate 
topics for the “Tangible Meets Gestural” special issue include but are 
not limited to:
- Theory and ground knowledge that frames gestural and tangible interaction
- Application of existing post-WIMP frameworks in tangible and gestural 
- Comparison of gestural and tangible interfaces (user performances, 
cognitive load, fatigue, learnability, skill development etc.) in 
specific application domains
- Expressivity of tangible and gestural interfaces
- Physical and psychological implications of human senses and skills 
involved in tangible and gestural interactions
- Feedback and feedforward for tangible and gestural interaction
- Novel applications for tangible gesture interfaces
- Theory, frameworks and future visions on tangible gesture interaction
- Techniques for mixed gesture and object recognition
