Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

At present, technology enables us to interact with 3D digital contents anywhere, at any time. Much of this technology relies on the manifold benefits of human–computer interaction (HCI) research. However, given the increased mobility and wearability of computing devices, interacting with 3D contents which are interactive, immersive, and attractive comes at a cost to attention and cognition in everyday physical environments (e.g., running an AR application using smartphones while walking and even driving in a car). 

Situational variations in cognitive demands affect the "quality" of a user’s HCI experience. Augmenting people’s senses with computational support may improve the ability to perceive information and perform tasks; however, the impact of such augmentation also fluctuates according to user context and can possibly lead to attention-impoverished situations, thereby reducing the quality of a user experience.

The aim of this Special Issue is to improve the quality of user experience in interacting with 3D digital contents and/or multimodal interactive information in ubiquitous HCI situations by enabling computers to understand human capability in attention and cognition, to augment our cognitive processing capabilities between physical and virtual information space, and to create cyberhuman systems that are more intelligent and can adapt interventions to different users. 

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Human–computer interaction (HCI);
  • 3D interaction and VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality), MR (mixed reality) interfaces;
  • Natural user interfaces (e.g., gesture control, speech recognition, facial recognition, gaze-contingency, etc.);
  • Interactive, mobile, wearable, context-aware, ubiquitous technologies;
  • Human-centered interactive AI-enabled systems.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
