INTERACT 2021 - Bari, Aug 30th, Sep 3rd, 2021

Call for Papers


The theme of INTERACT 2021 is “Sense, Feel, Design”,  highlighting new challenges of interaction design. Technology is today more and more widespread, pervasive and blended in the world we live in. On one side, devices that sense humans' activities have the potential to provide an enriched interaction. On the other side, the user experience can be further enhanced by exploiting multisensorial technologies. Not only the traditional human senses of vision and hearing, but also senses of touch, smell, and taste, as well as emotions are to be taken into account when designing for future interactions. INTERACT 2021 is the right venue to debate such new challenges. Another new topic of this edition is Human-AI Interaction, focusing on the design of human-centered intelligent systems.

Conference proceedings are published in Springer LNCS series and are available in the Springer Digital Library.
