SPECIAL ISSUE ON Reimagining Interfaces for Older Adults

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MOBILE HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION (IJMHCI)
Official publication of the Information Resources Management Association
www.igi-global.com/IJMHCI

Guest Editors: Emma Nicol, Mark D Dunlop, Jutta Treviranus

INTRODUCTION:
Many countries have an increasingly ageing population. In recent years, mobile and related technologies have had a massive impact on social and working life. As the older adult population rises, many people will want to continue professional, social and lifestyle usage of such technologies into their 70s and beyond. Mobiles support community involvement and personal independence, but the ageing process can interfere considerably with their usage, e.g. through changes in vision, hearing, attention, memory and motor control.

OBJECTIVE OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE:
This special issue will bring together the work and reflections of researchers who are re-imagining interfaces so that they are more suited for use by older adults. This may, for example, be through the redesign of interface elements, redesign of interaction flows or by reassessing user experience to be more suitable for older adults. We aim to highlight the wealth and breadth of applications that are used by older adults, how those applications are used and present high quality research into making those applications better suited to the population of use. We aim to bring together papers that focus on supporting aspects of lifestyle change, acknowledging and supporting changes in our physical & mental abilities as we age, and designing for either specific older user communities or diverse populations as a whole. In bringing together research in these areas we aim to encourage the reimagining of interfaces and interaction for older adults.

RECOMMENDED TOPICS:
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
•       Multimodal interaction with older adults
•       User experience with older adults
•       Mobile input, visual interaction and cognitive access with older adults
•       Older adults and ubiquitous computing
•       Participatory design process for older adults
•       Mobile interface evaluation with older adults
•       Novel physical interaction for older adults
•       The effect and implications of the ageing process for mobile design
•       Interdisciplinary perspectives on mobile design for older adults

SUBMISSION PROCEDURE:
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special theme issue on Reimaging Mobile Interfaces for Older Adults on or before 23.01.2015. All submissions must be original and may not be under review by another publication. INTERESTED AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE JOURNAL’S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at http://www.igi-global.com/publish/resources/journal-guidelines-for-submission.pdf  All submitted papers will be reviewed on a double-blind, peer review basis. Papers must follow APA style for reference citations.

All papers should be submitted through the E Editorial DiscoveryTM Online Submission System – a http://www.igi-global.com/submission/submit-manuscript/.  When submitting, choose International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction (IJMHCI) for the Journal and under “Submit to a Special Issue” choose Reimagining Interfaces for Older Adults.  Failure to do this will mean your submission is not reviewed in relation to this special issue.
