interactive entertainment with a focus on interaction in games and
other entertainment products and to discuss design challenges and the

strengthen the awareness of the relevance of user-friendly and
innovative interfaces for entertainment applications in the research
community and in the public, to encourage the research activities and
the education in this field, and to foster the knowledge transfer
between researchers and developers. We like to emphasize the
interdisciplinary background of the "Entertainment Interfaces" track
and welcome contributions from the areas of computer science,
psychology, design and engineering sciences as well as contributions
