Human-computer interaction (HCI) as a topic is fundamentally simple. There is a person of some sort who wants to do some task. What makes the activity HCI is inserting a mediating computer. In principle, our person could have done the task without the computer. Such cases are not quite HCI. They do use intermediary tools or machines, and the process of their design and the facts of their use bear resemblance to those of HCI. In fact, they fit into HCI’s unique discipline of human factors. However, it is the computer, and the process of contingent interaction the computer renders possible, that makes HCI distinctive.
HCI-related development is entering a new era, which demands new technologies to support the rapid development of Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Mixed Reality (MR) applications. Current cutting edge technologies, which include brain-computer interface (BCI), image and vision computing, artificial intelligence, etc., have made an impact on HCI applications. Challenges exist in conception and technology, but also new methods and tools have to be thought up, for example, in participatory design.
This Special Issue aims to gather experts and scholars from related fields to present and share their recent research on HCI and brain informatics related applications. The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for discussion and interaction among researchers with interests in the cutting edge techniques of HCI and artificial intelligence applications, in particular, the rapid growth of AR/VR/AI applications. Participants are invited to submit papers in all areas of AI- and knowledge-based approaches, particularly in the area of brain informatics.
The Ibero-American Conference on Human–Computer Interaction (HCI) has been organized annually by the HCI-Collab Network since 2015, bringing together Researchers, Professors, Professionals, Undergraduate and Graduate Students linked to the Computer Science discipline to discuss ideas behind Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) from within an Ibero-American context. The 9th edition will be held in Universidad Nacional de La Matanza, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from September 13th to 15th 2023; we wish to encourage Researchers and Undergraduate and Graduate Students from Latin America to attend and explore the technological relevance of HCI and its impact on other disciplines. That is why the Conference will have as its main axis the "Transversality of Human-Computer Interaction: impact on multiple disciplines". For this Special Issue, we will invite authors of some of the best papers from the Ibero-American Conference on Human–Computer Interaction to send extended versions.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Sustainability 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 2400 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.
