  *** CALL FOR PAPERS ***

  Human- and computer-based interactions  are ubiquitous in  our
  everyday lives - everything  from  our  mobiles,  iPods,  to a
  variety of computer systems  creates serious cognitive demands
  when switching from one to the next. When used simultaneously,
  extra cognitive demands are placed on us and the likelihood of
  success is dependent  upon our ability to apportion  attention
  to multiple tasks simultaneously.  To alleviate  the cognitive
  load associated with interacting  with varied  computing-based
  devices,   common   UIs   and  modes  of operation  should  be
  implemented,  significantly reducing the amount of information
  we must store and recall.  In addition,  subtle cues could  be
  emitted from the device to assist us during our  interactions,
  prompting   us  toward  the appropriate  action  required   to
  effectively complete a task.  These cues could be delivered in
  a variety of (communication channels), for instance, visual or
  auditory  cues could be  provided  according  to the  specific
  nature of the current activity.

  In  order to implement  these features,  UIs must be  provided
  with the means to detect the nature of the current interaction
  set,  rovide the subliminal cues across appropriate  channels,
  and evaluate their success.  This approach would benefit  from
  a   significant   collaborative   effort   from  a  range   of
  disciplines:   engineering,  neuroscience,  computer  science,
  psychophysiology,  and  related  fields.  The result  of  this
  approach provides exciting challenges which will significantly
  impact  society  at large,  making  significant  contributions
  toward a more natural,  convenient,  and even relaxing  future
  human-computer interface.

  Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  - Compatibility  of  subliminal information transmission  with
    other demands and conditions in the field of HCI
  - Limits of reproducibility
  - Influence in interaction with further explicit channels
  - Impact   of   subliminally  delivered  information  on   the
    cognitive load
  - Subliminally   delivered  information  and   the  level   of
    distraction
  - Subliminal  interfaces  for  the automotive domain  (head-up
    displays, vibro-tactile transducers embedded into the seat)
  - Basic characteristics of subliminally delivered  information
    (reachable   bandwidth,   natural  bounds,   complexity   of
    information, speed of perception)
  - Potential of subliminal cues to guide a person to the  right
    course of action or to a specific emotional state
  - Hardware components, that is, interactive smart rooms, games
    with dynamic UIs
  - Analysis   of  subliminal  processes,   that  is,   implicit
    interaction/cognition,  subliminal  messaging,   unconscious
    emotions
