Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by SCOPUS, Google Scholar, The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Semantic Scholar, Engineering Index (EI) and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

Scope

While the deployment of connected automated vehicle (CAV) turns into reality, its acceptance has been called into question. Public acceptance is a multi-faceted construct, tightly related to emotional processes and trust in a new technology, beyond the accomplishment of functional performance.

In order to address this issue, one of the objectives of the project H2020 SUaaVE (Supporting acceptance of automated VEhicle), under grant agreement No 814999, is the conceptualisation of the fundamental architecture to humanise the behaviour of the vehicle. In particular, this concept will be aimed to understand passengers’ state based on their physiological response and, from this information, to manage corrective actions in vehicle for enhancing trip experience.

Scope

Digitalisation is transforming the retail industry into “Digital Retail”, a combination of physical retailing and digital technologies. At the same time, omnichannel customer journey, described as the simultaneous use of various channels by customers, emerged as a new phenomenon caused by changes in consumer behaviour.

Human-Computer Interaction brings a user-centric perspective into needs for utilizing computer/digital technologies, and for shaping those towards positive and engaging experiences.

Shaping these technologies for customer needs and enriching shopping experiences is essential, also fulfilling retailer requirements. The intersection of HCI and Digital Retail can bridge the gap for enabling and designing omnichannel and convenient shopping experiences to consumers and retailers equally.

This special session is organized by members of the Horizon2020 project PERFORM: www.perform-network.eu.
