Human–computer interactions (HCI) are crucial for user-friendly interactions between human users and computer systems, which can be different from a conventional computer, and may appear to be a (portable) hardware device or a software package. As such, HCI is, not only requested to provide effective input/output, it is also expected to understand the intentions of users and the environment for better service-oriented interactions. These have raised new challenges beyond conventional multimodal HCI, including audio, image, video and graphics, as well as keyboard and mouse. To this end, AI-guided intelligent recognition of speech instructions and visual signs, such as gestures and gaze, have been widely adopted as a natural way to communicate in HCI.
Recently, thanks to emerging sensors and sensing techniques, HCI has been further developed for immersive and affective communication between human users and computer systems. Examples can be found in virtual-reality-based experiences, electroencephalogram-enabled brain–computer interfaces, and smart interactions between humans and robots. In addition to auditory and visual clues, touch, taste and smell have also been explored in this context. How to effectively use these individual sources of information, and also fuse some of them together for different levels of tasks, still needs to be explored.
In this Special Issue, we aim to provide a forum for colleagues to report the most up-to-date results of developed models/algorithms/approaches/techniques, as well as comprehensive surveys of the state-of-the-art in relevant fields. Both original contributions with theoretical novelty and practical solutions for addressing particular problems in HCI are solicited. Rather than reporting the results of HCI in particular applications, questions such as “how, why and when” should be answered when applying relevant HCI techniques in a specific context.

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2200 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.
