6th Conference on Multimedia, Interaction, Design and Innovation (MIDI'18)

Poznan, Poland, 9-12 September, 2018

Organized by:

Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology in Warsaw, Poland,
Gdansk University of Technology, Poland,
Institute of Applied Computer Science, Lodz University of Technology, Poland

within the framework of:



MIDI (Multimedia, Interaction, Design and Innovation) International 
Conference is exploring design methods for creating novel human-system 
interaction (HCI), developing user interfaces and implementing 
innovations in user-centred development of advanced IT systems and 
on-line services. MIDI Conference is a quality-oriented event with 
limited number of participants in order to stimulate lively, 
thought-provoking discussions, and to provide conditions for 
establishing memorable personal contacts.

MIDI Conference offers a unique opportunity to bring together 
researchers and practitioners working in diverse areas of interaction 
design for digital products of any type – hardware, software, services, 
games and art.

MIDI Conference invites novel submissions on all topics related to 
innovative design of interactions between humans, products and on-line 
services. We welcome submissions which include any of the following topics:

-- interactive multimedia and multimodal interaction

-- interaction in e-services design

-- IT-enabled innovation and creativity

-- novel HCI methodologies

-- last-minute reports and case studies.

MIDI welcomes submissions of original previously unpublished 
contributions which are not submitted concurrently to a journal or 
another conference. Vivid atmosphere of MIDI attracts both mature and 
young researchers, including PhD students, graduate students and 
post-docs, who are all invited to publish their analytical work or new 
research in relevant areas.

Previous MIDI conferences were held in Poland (Warsaw and Gdansk) and 
have always provided unforgettable experience in terms of both technical 
and social aspects:


Papers presented during the conference will be submitted for inclusion 
by IEEE Xplore Digital Library proceedings (ISBN and IEEE Catalog 
number) under a nonexclusive copyright, thus further publication of 
extended papers are possible. Conference proceedings will be submitted 
for indexation to BazEkon, Thomson Reuters - Conference Proceedings 
Citation Index, SciVerse Scopus, Inspec, Index Copernicus, DBLP Computer 
Science Bibliography and Google Scholar.

MIDI papers are included in FedCSIS proceedings, which are indexed 
by Web of Science since 2012. Polish Ministry of Science assigns 15 
points for each research paper published. Papers acceptance and 
publication category will be judged based on their relevance to the 
conference theme, clarity of presentation, originality and accuracy of 
results and proposed solutions.

Authors shall submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF of MSWord file), 
IEEE template.

MIDI Conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for academics, 
designers and practitioners to discuss the challenges and opportunities 
for enriching human interaction with digital products and services.

Specific topics of interest related to MIDI conference include (but are 
not limited to) the following areas:

**Technologies and software engineering for interaction design:

    * interactive multimedia and multimodal interaction design

    * novel interaction techniques, voice interfaces, interactive multimedia

    * ubiquitous, multimodal, pervasive and mobile interaction, wearable 

    * novel information visualization and presentation techniques, 
Augmented/Virtual Reality

**Methods and methodologies for design and prototyping:

    * design methods for usability, accessibility and outstanding user 

    * prototyping of user interfaces and interactive services

    * human-centred design practices, methods and tools, user interface 

    * unfolding trends in HCI research and practice, customer 
experience, Service Design

**User experience and interaction design methods:

    * advances in user-centred interaction design

    * understanding people and interactions: theory, concepts, models 
and methods

    * understanding people and interactions: contextual, ethnographical 
and field studies

    * critique and evolution of methods, processes, theories and tools 
for human computer interaction

    * novel methodologies for conceptualization, design and evaluation 
of interactive products
