***Industrial Track: Putting HCI into Best Practice***

The Industrial Track is designed as a means to bring together
practitioners of different industrial areas as well as practitioners
with scientists.

Thus, the conference strongly encourages submission of
contributions, showcases and use case studies. Submissions on a
of topics are sought – particularly those that identify new directions
in the practical implementation and use of Human Computer Interaction
methodologies and tools. We welcome experience reports, war stories
(success and failure) and lessons learned.

Submissions should meet the following conditions:

At least one author of each Industrial Track submission should be from
company (rather than from a university).

The paper should report about industrial or other real-world
experiences, projects etc.

Presentations may include a short demo of the solution, methodology,

Contributions should concentrate on the HCI aspects behind the
rather than being pure marketing presentations.

Presentations should raise awareness in the research communi
ty of the
problems of practical applications.

Topics include the following aspects:

– Multi-platform delivery / device independence – Rich internet
- E-learning systems and content
- Simulations
- Serious games
- Mobile applications
- e-commerce applications and HCI issues
- Web 2.0 and e-learning 2.0
- Tool & Methodology Choices, Tradeoffs, Decisions
