A Workshop on Human Computer Interaction as a Gateway for Assistive Technology (Assistive-HCI'12)

Under the framework of The 4th International ACM Conference on Management of Emergent Digital EcoSystems (MEDES'12)
will be held on October 28-31, 2012 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
= General Information =
Typically, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) represents a significant technology attracting research interests from various disciplines.
It acts as a gateway for the world of assistive technology and collaborative computing.

Assistive-HCI'12 workshop focuses on the broad scope of physical interaction, cognitive communication, and social issues involved in
the use of information and communication technologies. The workshop provides a scientific forum gathering people from academia,
research, and industry for discussing the most emerging issues, recent advances, and future challenges in the area of human computer interaction.

= Topics of Interest =
Submissions are invited in, but not limited to, any of the following areas:

? Assistive Technology
? Collaborative Computing
? Multi-sensor HCI
? Speech and language processing
? Supportive, adaptive, and multimodal user interfaces
? Interactive educational environments
? Visualization and collaboration
? HCI for the social web
? Multi-user interaction analysis
? Interactive machine learning
? User modeling & personalization
? Security and privacy issues
? Affective user-centered analysis, design and evaluation
? Brain Computer Interactions
? Ubiquitous and Context-Aware Computing
? 3D Human Computer Interaction
? Interaction Design for Developing Regions
? Intelligent user interfaces

= Submission Guidelines =
Submissions must be in an electronic form as PDF format and should be uploaded using the conference website (;conf=medes2012).
The submitted paper should be at most 8 ACM single-space printed pages. Papers that fail to comply with length limit will be rejected. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer reviewers. After the preliminary notification date, authors rebut by evidence and arguments all reviewer inquiries and their comments. Based on the rebuttal feedback, reviewers notify authors with the final decision. Selection criteria will include: relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical soundness, and quality of presentation.
Preference will be given to submissions that take strong or challenging positions on important emergent topics related to Assistive-HCI'12 workshop theme. At least one author should attend the conference to present the paper.

The conference Proceedings will be published by ACM and indexed by the ACM Digital Library and DBLP.
Extended versions of selected papers will be published in several special issues and peer reviewed journals.
The list of journals will be announced later.
