Title: "Redesigning User Interface and Graphics Applications in Education, Medicine and Engineering: New Trends for Computational Imaging and 3D Simulation Technologies"

Handbook Aims

The various technological devices and the programming used in augmented reality, multimedia mobile, etc. must maximize the quality of the digital image (static and / or dynamic) to shorten the distance between the real and artificial world, generated by computers. However, In the new interfaces, the human being has to continue to easily differentiate the reality of the content from the fiction or virtuality of the images.

In our days, the user needs interactive systems to function correctly, in the technological devices with which she / he interacts (with or without artificial intelligence). In this theoretical-practical area, graphic computing (graphics and paradigms display, algorithms for the simulation, etc.) and the applications generated from it play a fundamental role including cutting-edge interfaces.

A vanguard that is directly related to those basic sectors of economically developed societies. In other words, serious and qualitative education; modern medicine, efficient and committed to safeguarding human lives, and engineers tending to find practical and sustainable solutions, in the shortest possible time, with reduced costs and oriented to the good of the entire community.

Therefore, our goal is to present a set of new trends in the generation of computer simulation images, using software and hardware committed to the common good in education, medicine and engineering. Below is a list of the main topics covered.

Finally, we clarify that this grouping of tracks and sub-themes are not closed. In other words, it is feasible to incorporate other issues, related to those exposed and that make direct and indirect reference to theories, experiences, results, lessons learned, projects in development, etc. In short, the principal topics and subtopics covered include but are not limited to:


Two-stage submission: First, interested researchers and practitioners are invited to submit a chapter proposal clearly stating your focused domain problems and contributions related to one of the above topics due on * Open *; second, authors of accepted proposals will be notified by "between two / three weeks after the submission/s" about the status of their proposals and sent chapter organizational guidelines. Full chapters are due by * Open *. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a triple-blind review basis. The handbook is scheduled to be published in 2020 by Blue Herons Editions (Canada, Argentina, Spain and Italy).
