8th Conference on Multimedia, Interaction, Design and Innovation (MIDI’20)
Sofia, Bulgaria, 6-9 September, 2020
MIDI Conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for academics, designers and practitioners to discuss the challenges and opportunities for enriching human interaction with digital products and services.
The main focus of MIDI Conference is exploring design methods for creating novel human-system interaction, developing user interfaces and implementing innovations in user-centred development of advanced IT systems and on-line services.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following areas:
Technologies and software engineering for interaction design:
- interactive multimedia and multimodal interaction design
- novel interaction techniques, voice interfaces, interactive multimedia
- ubiquitous, multimodal, pervasive and mobile interaction, wearable computing
- novel information visualization and presentation techniques, Augmented/Virtual Reality
Methods and methodologies for design and prototyping:
- design methods for usability, accessibility and outstanding user experience
- prototyping of user interfaces and interactive services
- human-centred design practices, methods and tools, user interface design
- unfolding trends in HCI research and practice, customer experience, Service Design
User experience and interaction design methods:
- advances in user-centred interaction design
- understanding people and interactions: theory, concepts, models and methods
- understanding people and interactions: contextual, ethnographical and field studies
- critique and evolution of methods, processes, theories and tools for human-computer interaction
- novel methodologies for conceptualization, design and evaluation of interactive products and services
- Authors should submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF or MSWord file).
