Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is an interdisciplinary study of
interfaces and their use. On the user side, communications, graphic
design, linguistics, anthropology, and cognitive psychology bring
techniques relevant to maximizing user productivity, facilitating
learning, and minimizing errors. On the computing side, techniques
from Software Engineering (SE) and computer graphics, to name a few,
make possible the realization of these carefully designed interfaces.
Although interface specialists and software engineers routinely work
in teams, we believe their collaboration is not explored and promoted
as it could be, leading to better end-results. This track emphasizes
perspectives of HCI and SE applied to HCI. That is, wee interested
in novel solutions for accessibility, design, engineering,
management,
and user experience of HCI. Additionally, we are also interested in
methodologies, techniques, and tools of software design and
development that assist users in absorbing and managing information
on
a variety of computational devices (i.e., SE applied to HCI). This
is
particularly challenging in domains such as safety critical systems,
or using hardware constrained mobile devices.
We welcome original and unpublished research achievements including,
but not limited to, the following topics:
- Accessibility
- Collaborative interaction
- Development methodologies, methods and techniques of HCI
- Domain-specific or end-user programming of HCI
- Formal models of interfaces requirements engineering
- Group and communities behavior modeling
- Intelligent and adaptive user interfaces
- Model-driven approaches (visual languages and environments) for HCI
- Software tools and environments to support HCI software development
- Usability
- User interface design
- User physiologic and cognitive modeling
in domains such as
- Education and Training
- Mobile Computing
- Safety Critical Systems
- Ubiquitous Computing
- Universally Accessible Interaction and Inclusive Design
*** Submission Guidelines ***
A paper cannot be submitted to more than one track. Submissions must
be original, unpublished, and not currently under review by
workshops,
conferences, or journals. All papers should be submitted online via
eCMS system at the SAC 2010 website.
Papers must be formatted according to the ACM template provided in
the
SAC2010 website, and take into account the following:
- In order to facilitate double blind review, the name(s) and address
(es) of the author(s) must NOT appear in the body of the paper, and
self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate
blind review. Only the title should be shown at the first page
without
the author's information;
- Papers should not exceed 4000 words;
- Authors should submit a separate cover sheet attached for each
paper
that includes the title of the paper, the name(s), affiliation(s),
address(es), email(s), phone(s), and fax number(s) of the author(s).
All accepted papers will be published in the annual conference
proceedings and will be available at the conference. Note that
accepted papers must fit within five (5) two-column pages, with the
option to add three (3) more pages at an additional expense of 80
(eighty) U
