** CONFERENCE AIM AND SCOPE
During the past years, innovative design approaches and new technologies brought a tremendous change in the way in which people interact with computers. Integration of multimedia and innovative on-line services is a stimulus to explore how these changes might open new perspectives for Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and leverage cross-domain synergy in interaction design and research.
MIDI Conference is organized by the Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technology (PJWSTK) in Warsaw, Poland. This conference continues the tradition of “Kansei – User Interface Design” Seminars organized annually since 2006, and aims at being a leading, cross-disciplinary HCI-related scientific event in Central Europe.
MIDI Conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for academics, designers, developers and practitioners to discuss the challenges and opportunities for enriching human interaction with digital products and services -- including technology, business, entertainment and art, whatever connects the human user and any type of digital technology.
The conference will have two main streams covering:
(1) full papers (up to 8 pages), presenting research results, insightful surveys of methodologies or validated concepts of novel interaction paradigms and applications;
2) short papers (up to 4 pages) presenting selected development aspects of Human-Computer Interaction, ideas that are not yet fully developed or work-in-progress, intended for further refinement.
Additional tutorials and workshops will be also included in the conference program.
** TOPICS OF INTEREST
MIDI Conference invites submissions on all topics related to cross-disciplinary, innovative design of interactions between humans and digital products of any type – hardware, software, services, games and art.
We welcome submissions that include, but are not limited to, any of the following topics:
-- human-centred design practices, methods and tools, user interface design, usability, accessibility, user-centred design of e-services, Kansei engineering and User Experience
INTERACTIVE MULTIMEDIA and MULTIMODAL INTERACTION:
-- novel interaction techniques, voice interfaces, interactive multimedia, Augmented/Virtual Reality, ubiquitous, multimodal, pervasive and mobile interaction, wearable computing, new devices and sensors, novel information visualization and presentation
INTERACTION in SERVICES DESIGN:
-- unfolding trends in HCI research and practice, user experience, customer experience, Service Design, user participation and co-design
INNOVATION and CREATIVITY:
-- innovations in design, e-business and e-services, expanding novel forms of interaction through ideas, social networks, technology, systems and tools
-- new forms of collaboration, groupware, teamwork, management and strategy in research and design organizations
NOVEL HCI METHODOLOGIES:
-- understanding people and interactions: theory, concepts and methods, contextual, ethnographical and field studies
-- application, critique and evolution of methods, processes, theories and tools
LAST-MINUTE REPORTS and CASE STUDIES
-- work-in-progress and pilot studies, latest projects and case studies.
MIDI Conference is an unique opportunity to bring together in one place researchers and practitioners working in diverse areas of interaction design, in various institutions ranging from IT systems and services development to interactive games and media design for business, advertisement, arts or entertainment.
In order to provide conditions for establishing intensive personal contacts and stimulating high-quality, lively discussions, it is planned that this conference will be attended by up to about 70 participants.
Warsaw is a vibrant, modern city, remembering its rich history: social programme of the conference will offer excellent opportunities to expand participants’ experience with the variety of attractions the city has to offer.
** SUBMISSION and PUBLICATION
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel of leading researchers:
-- best papers will be accepted to the main conference proceedings, in cooperation with the ACM, and will be published in the ACM Digital Library;
-- accepted short papers (work-in-progress, industrial experiences and case studies) will be published by the PJWSTK in a separate volume of short papers as on-line proceedings with an ISBN in Open Access under Creative Commons license and indexing in Google Scholar and DBLP Computer Science Bibliography.
The papers should be submitted using the template downloadable from the conference website.

Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.
