Title: "New Horizons in Creative Open Software, Multimedia, Human Factors and Software Engineering"

Handbook Aims

This edited handbook aims to report emerging new horizons in R+D and development outcomes on problems and corresponding strategies, methods, techniques, approaches and successful applications or solutions in computational informatics, design, communicability, audio-visual contents, social factors and programming for hypermedia (online and/or off-line interactive systems), etc. The handbook encourages high quality chapters to eradicate ambiguities and increasingly unify all participants in computer science and design, from production to realization of the emerging or new technologies.

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 2012; second, authors of accepted proposals will be notified by 2012 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter organizational guidelines. Full chapters are due by 2012. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a triple-blind review basis. The handbook is scheduled to be published in 2012 by Blue Herons Editions (Canada, Argentina, Spain and Italy).
