1. The Novel Advances in Interfaces for Human-Computer Communicability

Introduction

The use of mobile multimedia systems, especially in the context of telephony, has constituted a radical change in the communication process among human beings. That metamorphosis is irrespective of the place where they are at the moment of establishing the process of interactive communication, age, experience in the use of new technologies or training, among other variables.

The rapid diffusion of new devices has generated a kind of democratization of the multimedia systems and has reduced the digital divide among broad sectors of the population. The monthly cost of the services of the latest generation of mobile telephony, such as the acquisition of these devices, continues to be the main factor in the expansion or reduction of this digital divide. To the economic component we must add the use-abuse relationship of these devices, depending on the age of the users.

At present, it is easy to see how children between one and two years of age are already in contact with mobile telephony devices. It is an explorative or directed interaction guided / encouraged by their parents (babies) or companions (children and youngsters), so that they can activate dynamic media, such as: motion graphics, computer animation, video clips, special sound effects, music, etc.

In other words, the contents and applications of multimedia telephony have entered into the process of enculturation and transculturation of children and adolescents. Some content attracts attention and motivates navigation through audiovisual aesthetics, but is highly fragmented from a textual point of view. The consequence of these phenomena of interaction is the demotivation to read large volumes of texts, be it in digital or analogue media (paper).

In this process of constant feedback between users and the new interactive systems, the interfaces play a fundamental role. From these, you can see how logic or reasoning has been supplanted by intuition. An example, in this sense, are the different functionalities of the same icons, used in the interfaces of different models of operating systems of mobile telephony.

Therefore, the present session will analyze the human-computer interaction, from the perspective of the quality of communication between the user and the interactive systems, that is, the communicability, together with the latest breakthroughs in interface design. In this context, the analysis of interactive design, from its various categories, such as the presentation of the information on the screens, structuring of the contents, accessibility of databases, addressed sense modalities , etc., are some of the central themes. Simultaneously, we will analyze all those factors that, from the point of view of semiotics and audiovisual communication, boost or inhibit the processes of enculturation and transculturation, in students, through the social networks.

Other current and emerging themes and/or topics are also welcome, for example:

:: Augmented Reality
:: Children-Computer Interaction
:: Computer Graphics and Computer Vision
:: Gestural Interaction
:: Graphic Design
:: Information Retrieval and Information Visualization
:: Intelligent Interfaces
:: Interface Design and Assessment of Interactive Systems
:: Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing
:: Semiotics
:: Software Engineering
:: Static and Dynamics Media
:: User Experience
:: User Interface Technology
:: Web Interface Design

 

2. Improving Interactive Learning Through Comics, Animations And New Media

Introduction

In education, the use of comics has been a strategic means to enhance and promote the teaching process, inside and outside the classroom, since the last century. In the new millennium, it is still a means of visual or iconic base, whose greatest attribute is simplicity, it is available to teachers, students, parents, etc., who do not require intermediaries or special devices for reading. This is so, that the didactic process is still considered a valid element, irrespective of whether it is digital or not.

One evolution of the comic has been digitalization in 2D and/or 3D, going from the so-called traditional, small screen or television, to cinema and/or new media. The richness of the comic can be analyzed from the elaboration process, such as the incorporation of the elements of the historical context, the generation of the characters, the communication strategies (for example, the influence of the planes of the cinematographic cameras in the vignettes or cinema language, among many others. As a result of this wealth, it continues to be used in the brochures that explain processes such as the assembly and use of industrial machinery, the supply and prevention of medicines, etc. This form of communication is not synonymous with entertainment, on the contrary, it is still a sector of the publishing industry, which is in constant growth, in several countries of the EU, Japan, USA, etc.

These are some of the motivations to deepen their use, along with animations, especially in the new media. As a starting point, we consider it appropriate to start the work done by Walt Disney, along with other creators of cartoons, comics, clay animation, 2D and 3D animation, motion graphics, etc., of the 20th and 21st centuries, applied to the teaching of languages, geography, history, science, cinema, etc. It is a space where the inclusion of the "real and virtual" context will be valued. Some key elements of that scope are:

  • The development of original educational content.
  • Last generation software and hardware belonging to graphic computing, to enhance the final quality of the products and services derived from it.
  • Analysis of social communication, applied to interactive systems or not, either online or off-line.
  • Promote the study of positive examples and promote the use of these interactive communication resources to eradicate the negative aspects of current social networks, especially those related to cyber behavior.

The following are some of the main themes of this section. Other areas, topics, or subtopics of current relevance, provided their originality and impact, are welcome and possible for inclusion. Finally, a brief list of other potential areas and subtopics of interest:

:: 2D and 3D Computer Animation
:: Blended Learning
:: Cinema 3D
:: Claymation
:: Comics for Learning
:: Creativity
:: Communicability
:: Culture Systems
:: e-Learning
:: Educational Technology
:: Gamification of Learning
:: Human and Social Factors
:: Motion Graphics
:: New Media
:: Virtual Classroom and Virtual Campus

All contributions –papers, demos and posters, should be of high quality, originality, clarity, significance and impact. In the current sessions are demonstrated a correct integration and collaboration among professionals of formal and factual sciences.Finally, all submitted research works will be reviewed in double-blind (at least three reviewers), non-blind, and participative peer review. These three kinds of review will support the selection process of those that will be accepted for their presentation at the parallel sessions. Authors of accepted works who registered in the conference can have access to the evaluations and possible feedback provided by the reviewers who recommended the acceptance of their contributions, so they can improve the final version of their works accordingly.
