This workshop addresses the role of multimodality and mediated interaction for the analysis and design of human-centred, embodied, cognitive user experiences. Of particular interest are embodied visual-spatial, visuo-auditory, and visuo-locomotive cognitive experiences.
The workshop is organised as part of the The 16th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (INTERACT '17, https://www.interact2017.org/) to be held in Mumbai, India during September 25 - 29, 2017.

The workshop brings together experts in:
Technical Focus. The workshop focusses on multimodality studies aimed at the semantic interpretation of human behaviour, and the empirically-driven synthesis of embodied interactive experiences in real world settings. In focus are narrative media design, architecture & built environment design, product design, cognitive media studies (film, animation, VR, sound & music), and user interaction studies. In these and other design contexts, the workshop emphasises evidence-based multimodality studies from the viewpoints of visual (e.g., attention and recipient effects), visuo-locomotive (e.g., movement, wayfinding), and visuo-auditory (e.g., narrative media) cognitive experiences. Modalities being investigated include, but are not limited to:
The scientific agenda of the workshop focusses on the multi-modality of the objects, artefacts, and interactive people-experiences emanating therefrom. Universality and inclusion in design are of overarching focus in all design contexts relevant to this workshop; here, the implications of multimodality studies for inclusive design, e.g., creation of presentations of the same content in different modalities, are also of interest.
The workshop provides a platform to discuss the development of next-generation embodied interaction design systems, practices, and (human-centered) assistive frameworks & technologies encompassing the multi-faceted nature of embodied interaction design conception, analysis, and synthesis. All contributions addressing the workshop themes from formal, computational, cognitive, design, engineering, empirical, and philosophical perspectives are most welcome.
