Special Issue on: "Interactive Experiences in Multimedia and Augmented Environments"

Guest Editors: Prof. Teresa Romão and Prof. Nuno Correia, New University of Lisbon, Portugal

Novel interaction techniques and devices provide users with new experiences, which may have impact on their feelings, behaviours, knowledge acquisition process, performance and/or enjoyment. Innovative multimedia and augmented reality environments push the user interface beyond the digital into new physical and social contexts, affording a variety of dynamic, context-dependent and also subjective user experiences.
