Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to participate in the IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces 
2015 ( by submitting a poster. Posters provide an 
informal but interactive forum in which authors can present their work 
to symposium attendees during the poster session and during conference 
breaks. They describe works-in-progress, novel ideas, novel systems, or 
present the latest implemented applications. Posters are a great way to 
let others in the 3DUI community know about your work as well as an 
opportunity to discuss and make potential collaborations!

Poster submissions should be within the scope of three-dimensional user 
We would also like to introduce a subtle shift in focus for 3D UI 
research. Given that this is the 10th annual 3DUI Symposium, and that 
significant progress has been mode over the years to address the 
"classic five" low-level interaction tasks of Selection, Manipulation, 
Navigation, Symbolic Input, and System Control, we strongly encourage 
posters that attempt to address higher-level tasks that draw on three or 
more of the lower-level tasks.

Topics of the symposium include (but not limited to):
* 3D input devices
* 3D display and sensory feedback
* 3D interaction techniques
* 3D user interface metaphors
* Mobile 3DUIs
* Non-fatiguing 3DUIs
* Desktop 3DUIs
* 3DUIs for VR and AR

MobiSys 2015 Final Call for Papers

MobiSys 2015 Final Call for Papers!

Paper abstract deadline: November 28th, 11:59 PM EST.
Paper submission deadline: December 5, 2014, 11:59 PM EST.

MobiSys 2015 will continue the tradition of publishing top-notch research
papers dealing with all aspects of mobile systems. MobiSys seeks original
papers that take a broad systems perspective rather than focus narrowly on
low-level components. Of particular interest are technical contributions
that enable new and compelling mobile scenarios and applications. The
conference values results and insights obtained from working implementations
more highly than those obtained solely from simulations.

Please note that the Mobisys paper deadline and the conference itself is
earlier than in the past, due to co-location with WWW 2015.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Experience w/ mobile apps, networks and systems
Innovative mobile sensing & crowdsourcing apps
Tools for building and measuring mobile systems
Innovative wearable or mobile devices
Novel software architectures for mobile devices
Data management for mobile applications
Infrastructure support for node mobility
System-level energy management for mobile
Operating systems for mobile devices
Support for mobile social networking & web       
Security and privacy in mobile systems

British HCI 2015: First Call for Papers

British HCI 2015: First Call for Papers

The 29th British Human Computer Interaction Conference ( will be held in
Lincoln (UK) from 13th-17th July 2015. The conference is organised by the University of Lincoln's Social
Computing (LiSC) research centre in conjunction with the BCS Interaction Specialist Group.

The theme for HCI 2015 is digital society, and the role interactive technology plays in mediating our civic
lives. This is inspired by the 800th anniversary, in 2015, of the sealing of the Magna Carta, an event
viewed as an international cornerstone of liberty and that one that challenged society's relationship
with authority. Lincoln is home to one of only four surviving copies of the Magna Carta and will take a major
role in the 800th anniversary celebrations coinciding with our hosting of HCI 2015. The theme reflects
the increasing public consciousness of how interactive technologies fundamentally affect our
privacy, rights, and relationships with authority, government and commerce. Whilst the conference
will, of course, welcome contributions from all aspects of HCI research we will particularly encourage
submissions of all types that focus on social renewal, activism, democracy, and grassroots innovation.

HCI 2015 will feature a number of innovations. The main conference will be single oral track and feature
both full papers and a new submission stream of position papers, as well as invited panels and other
special sessions. Works-in-Progress will be presented as posters and we will host an interactive demos
exhibition. In addition to the traditional workshops that precede the conference we will also host a 24
hour hack and a large scale doctoral student networking event. Please check the website for Calls for Participation, or follow our Twitter account to hear breaking
news. For any queries about any of the submission streams please contact hci2015 <at>

We are now inviting submissions for full and position papers - for full details see  Full technical paper submissions will be variable in length
between 6-10 pages and will describe complete pieces of research that make a distinct contribution to the
field of HCI. Position Papers will a maximum 2 pages and are intended to provide authors with a route to

CFP: Special Issue on eLearning and Linked Open Data - Extended Deadline (December 15, 2014)

Call For Articles:
Special Issue of the Bulletin of the Technical Committee on Learning

“eLearning and Linked Open Data”

Guest Editors:

Salvador Sanchez-Alonso and Enayat Rajabi Information Engineering research
unit University of Alcalá, Spain {salvador.sanchez, enayat.rajabi} <at>

With the proliferation of e-learning resources on the Web, exposing, and
sharing educational resources in digital form has become an important issue.
Many of these resources are implicitly related to each other or to the
interest, cultural and technical environment of learners. Connecting
different kinds of learning objects promotes a new scenario where currently
isolated data repositories would progress towards an open discovery space
including resources independent of their geographic and system boundaries.
Finding links  is also very useful for enriching educational materials and
provides the added benefit of giving access to richer contents to both
educators and learners. 
The Linked Data approach, as a de facto standard for interlinking data on
the Web, includes a set of successful principles which facilitate sharing
and reusing data on the Web and lead to vast amounts of publicly available
datasets. Using Linked Data, the repository owners can publish structured
data and establish typed links among them from various sources. This
approach enables enriching existing resources, enhances casual discovery,
and improves resource discovery. However, applying the Linked Data in
eLearning contexts needs more research attention and many aspects remain
largely unexplored.
