5th Conference on Multimedia, Interaction, Design and Innovation (MIDI'17)

Prague, Czech Republic, 3-6 September, 2017 <> 


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MIDI welcomes submissions of original previously unpublished contributions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 should submit their papers (as Postscript, PDF of MSWord file) using
IEEE template.

Further details can be found at  <> . 



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,

**User experience and interaction design methods:

   * advances in user-centred interaction design

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

   * 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
