This Special Issue explores methods, technologies, and studies of 3D interaction in the broad area of Human–Computer Interaction (HCI). HCI researches the interface between people and computers. 3D user interfaces (3DUI) can involve input devices that track user movements in 3D, techniques for interaction with virtual or augmented reality, or other interfaces in which a 3D arrangement of inputs or environments is characteristic. Like HCI, 3DUI research lies in the intersection of computer science, behavioral sciences, design, media studies, and several other fields of study. This Special Issue invites contributions on the technological, creative, perceptual, cognitive, social, and health aspects of 3DUI.
We encourage authors to submit original research articles, novel case studies, insightful reviews, theoretical and critical perspectives, and well-argued viewpoint articles on 3D Human–Computer Interaction, including but not limited to the following:
- 3D interaction techniques and metaphors
- 3D input and sensing technologies
- 3D feedback for any senses (visual, auditory, haptic, olfactory, gustatory, vestibular)
- Empirical studies of 3DUIs
- Novel software architectures for 3DUI
- Collaborative interfaces for VR, AR, or other 3D computer environments
- Evaluation methods for 3DUIs
- Human perception of 3D interaction
- Novel Applications of 3DUIs: Games, entertainment, CAD, education, etc.
- Mobile 3DUIs
- Hybrid 3DUIs
- Desktop 3DUIs
Of particular interest are articles that critically explore 3D Human–Computer Interaction methods in contexts such as virtual reality, augmented reality, and mobile/wearable devices.

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. Multimodal Technologies and Interaction is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
