Personal and Ubiquitous Computing
Jose Bravo Castilla-La Mancha University Luis A. Castro Sonora Institute of Technology
Traditional notions of Human-Computer Interaction involve explicit interaction with users through input devices such as the keyboards or touchscreens and output devices, such as computer displays or printers, that display information to users.
Now, with the advent of ambient intelligence (AmI) interactions may also happen implicitly via sensors embedded in the environment that serve to mediate or articulate interaction using responsive technology.
This theme issue aims to bring together emerging research and developments in AmI, including ubiquitous sensing, user and behavioural modelling and the recognition of human behaviour.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Human-ambient interaction Ubiquitous and ambient displays Use of wearable devices and environmental sensors for context data gathering Adaptive interfaces for AmI environments Use of context and location information in user interfaces Adaptive interfaces for Ambient Assisted Living Big data analytics from context information Persuasive interfaces and user empowerment User modelling in AmI environments User-centered methodologies and strategies for AmI development Modelling user engagement in AmI
