Title: "Computational Informatics, Social Factors and New Information Technologies: Hypermedia Perspectives and Avant-Garde Experiencies in the Era of Communicability Expansion"

Handbook Aims

The current handbook is intended to be a first guideline for all those professionals of the new information and communication technologies. At the same time it has an interrelated bidirectional goal; to save costs to the manufacturers or entrepreneurs of the products/services of the latest technological generation and to evaluate the communicability of design. All of this is done to detect quickly the positive human and social factors (boosting them) and negative (wiping them out). The handbook encourages high quality chapters. Next are listed the main subjects related to the design of the latest generation interactive systems and the social factors that are included in them. These subjects do not exclude others that directly or indirectly are related to them.

Scopes of Interest (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 Monday, 11 July 2011; second, authors of accepted proposals will be notified by Friday, 15 July 2011 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter organizational guidelines. Full chapters are due by Monday, 25 July 2011. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a triple-blind review basis. The handbook is scheduled to be published in July/August 2011 by Blue Herons Editions (Canada, Argentina, Spain and Italy).
