Call for Papers

Special Issue of the
ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems
on COMMON SENSE FOR INTERACTIVE SYSTEMS

Main submission deadline: April 27th, 2011

AIMS AND SCOPE

Ideally, computers should be able to interact with users at a
higher level than they do now, by understanding our goals, our
problems, and the social procedures by which we live. But to do
so, they must have access to a wealth of information about the
world that we take for granted: common sense knowledge, or world
knowledge.

Common sense knowledge can give rise to a richer user experience
with a wide variety of interactive systems, from recommenders to
storytelling platforms.

Since everyone possesses common sense knowledge, volunteers
represent a significant source of common sense for computers. A
well-designed intelligent user interface can guide a volunteer in
a subjectively rewarding way to add the knowledge that is most
needed.

Alternatively, world knowledge may be provided by a domain
expert, or a game or story world may be created by an artist; in
these cases, an interface must be designed to pass this knowledge
from the expert to a common sense knowledge base.

This special issue aims to advance understanding of both sides of
this symbiotic relationship: How can common sense enable
computers to understand and serve their human users better? How
can interfaces effectively support the elicitation of common
sense knowledge?
