Call for Papers: Behaviour & Information Technology

Special Issue: Advances in methods, techniques and tools for the study of human behaviour (http://explore.tandfonline.com/cfp/est/tbit-cfp-1214)

Introduction

In depth understanding of human behavior remains one of science’s grand challenges. Advancements in ICT has eased sensing and recording problems but introduced a new problem: the interpretation of this “big” data. This is where becomes apparent that tools cannot surpass solutions and can even confuse our understanding of human behavior.

With electronics becoming cheap and omnipresent and software becoming open source, these technologies can hardly limit researcher’s aims. Although they invite researchers to go from lab to life, they introduce uncontrollable sources of noise and, consequently, increase research complexity. This call for papers invites advances in methods, techniques and tools that contribute to our understanding of human behavior.

Topics

Advances on methods, techniques, and tools can include, but are not limited to:

Modalities as well as combinations of them:

  • Text analysis and mining
  • (Computer) vision
  • Eye-tracking
  • Speech, audio and auditory aspects
  • Tactile measurements
  • Olfactory measurements
  • Physiological signals

Methods as well as combinations of them:

  • Recording
  • Analysis
  • Formal
  • Protocols
  • Traditional HCI measurements (e.g., keyboard, mouse, and joystick)

Environments as well as combinations of them:

  • Lab/ controlled
  • Virtual reality
  • Augmented reality/environments
  • Ambulatory (ambient and ubiquitous)

Application areas:

  • Consumer behavior
  • Social behavior (including tracking)
  • Timing of behavior
  • Psychophysiology (including well-being)
  • Eating behavior

In all cases, submission must contain a thorough theoretical framework, rigorous methods, and solid analysis resulting in well validated work. Submissions can address lab and field research, low and high fidelity prototypes, and tool boxes or extensions of existing methods or systems.

Submission

Important Dates

Full manuscript due: April 01, 2015
