CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

INTETAIN 2015

7th International Conference on Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment

June 10-12, 2015 - Turin, Italy

Scope

HCI studies aim to plan, design and implement new forms of interaction between people and computers. As HCI involves machines and humans both computer sciences (computer graphics, operating systems, programming languages, etc.) and social sciences (human factors, cognitive psychology, ergonomics, etc.) are relevant.

Moreover, when these disciplines are considered together to foster the development of (digital) entertainment contents, new attractive challenges need to be faced by researchers and practitioners. New intriguing research areas can arise from the application of new interaction paradigms to the entertainment industry. As a matter of example, touch and multi-touch interfaces can be considered. They have really shacked up the way people interact with mobile devices, thus also changing the concept of entertainment for this type of devices.

The 7th Int e rnational Conference on Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment (INTETAIN 2015) will address all the issues concerning relationships between human-computer interaction and entertainment.

The objective of the conference is to attract high state-of-art contributions that address the broad challenges faced in using innovative and interactive technologies/tools in order to create entertainment contents. The goal is to explore and discuss innovative studies, technologies and applications aimed to propose new interface paradigms.
