With this Special Issue, we aim to bring together expertise and insights 
from the domain of human-computer interaction (HCI) to help address 
fundamental challenges in semantic web systems design. There are many 
technological and socio-technical challenges in semantic web, linked 
data and web science that may benefit from the research techniques and 
other approaches from interaction design, user-centered design and 
related disciplines. The special issue on Semantic Web Interfaces (SWI) 
is being developed in parallel with workshops and a W3C community group.

Topics of interest for the special issue (but not limited to)

     Requirements for supporting the design and implementation of user 
interfaces for semantic applications
     Natural Language Interfaces
     Interaction styles and requirements, including new/emergent types 
of interactions
     Models for specifying structure and behavior of semantic interfaces
     Lessons learned from developing, evaluating and using semantic 
     Defining Semantic Interfaces: concepts, requirements
     Literature reviews and methodologies
     Stakeholders perspectives
     Semantic search interfaces
     Use Cases/Case Studies, best practices, evaluations
     New web based interaction technologies (Gesture, Touch, Mind-Web 
Interfaces, etc.)
     UI/UX paradigms for semantic applications on mobile devices, taking 
into account on-board sensors (think: Siri/Google Now on steroids)
     Visualization in semantic interfaces
