                    Special Issue
    Multimodality: a step towards universal access

About the UAIS Journal
----------------------
The UAIS Journal solicits original research contributions addressing 
the accessibility, usability and acceptability of Information 
Society Technologies by anyone, anywhere, at anytime, and through any 
media and device. Universal access refers to the systematic effort to 
proactively apply principles, methods and tools of universal design, 
in order to develop Information Society Technologies which are 
accessible and usable by all citizens. 
The Journal's unique focus is on theoretical, methodological, and 
empirical research, of both technological and non-technological nature, 
that addresses equitable access and active participation of potentially 
all citizens in the Information Society.

For further information, please, refer to the "Aims and scope" section 
on the Website of the UAIS Journal.

Aims and scope of this special issue
------------------------------------
Multimodality (that is the combination of various expression or 
presentation modalities) appears as a promising approach for 
facilitating access: 
- to all users, including the very young and the elderly, as well as 
  people with various types of disabilities;
- in all contexts of use, especially those emerging due to the diffusion 
  of novel computer applications contributing to the implementation of 
  new design principles and paradigms, such as "mobile computing", 
  "ubiquitous computing", "disappearing computer", "ambient intelligence", 
  etc.
Original research contributions are solicited, which focus on the use of 
new interaction media and modalities with a view to improving computer 
accessibility for all users in all contexts of use.

The thematic scope of this special issue includes scientific issues 
relating to the software organization and implementation, or to the 
utility and usability of novel input/output medias and modalities, 
provided that it may contribute to improving and widening the apparatus 
for universal access. 

Main topics
-----------
This special issue will focus on research work on the design, development, 
evaluation, and use of new interaction media / modalities and their 
combinations.
Authors of submissions should carefully explain how the work and results 
presented contribute to facilitating and promoting universal access.

Contributions are solicited in, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Design and implementation of novel interaction devices, modalities and 
  forms of multimodality
- Ergonomics and human factors of media, modalities and forms of 
  multimodality
- Design theory, software architectures, and support tools for 
  multimodal HCI
- Methods, techniques and instruments to assess the utility, 
  accessibility and usability of novel modalities and forms of 
  multimodality
- Modeling user diversity in the usage of novel medias, modalities and 
  forms of multimodality
- Modality adaptation ? Adaptable and adaptive multimodal HCI
- Multimodal interaction with computer-mediated virtual spaces
- Tools, techniques and methodologies for multimodal corpora (creation, 
  analysis, etc.)

Important dates
---------------
Deadline for submission of papers: December 31, 2001
Notification of acceptance: March 15, 2002.
Deadline for submission of camera-ready version of accepted papers: 
June 30, 2002.
Expected publication date of the special issue: second half of 2002.

Authors should submit their manuscripts electronically as PDF files to 
the Guest Editor of the special issue, NoŽlle Carbonell 
(e-mail: [log in to unmask]).

Manuscript preparation
----------------------
Please, refer to the "Instructions to authors" section on the Website 
of the UAIS Journal.

Reviewing process
-----------------

field, appointed by the Guest Editor of the issue in consultation 
with the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal.

Copyright information
---------------------
Submission of an article implies that:
- the work described has not been published before, except in form of 
  an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis;
- it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
