COOP 2016

COOP is one of the key European conferences on Cooperative Systems, Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Collaborative Computing and is affiliated to EUSSET – the European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies. COOP 2016 will be the twelfth edition of this biennial conference and will take place in Trento, Italy
The COOP conferences promote the idea that cooperative systems design requires a deep understanding of collective activities, involving both artefacts and social practices, within a context. COOP embraces a wide set of research questions on the design, development, and evaluation of socially-situated technologies. This year, the programme intends to open up to the topic of collaborative design, with a special emphasis on “Making together”.

AVI 2016

Since 1992, AVI has been a biannual appointment for a wide international community of experts with a broad range of backgrounds. Through out more than two decades, the conference has attracted leading researchers of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) from all over the world, offering a forum to present and disseminate new technological results, new paradigms, new visions for HCI and user interfaces. Because of advanced technology and new possibilities for user interaction, AVI has broadened the topics it covers, still keeping its main focus on the conception, design, implementation and evaluation of novel visual interfaces.
While routed in Italy, AVI is a true international conference with respect to nationality of participants, authors of papers and program committee members. The mixture of carefully selected research contributions paired with cordial Italian hospitality creates a unique conference atmosphere, which has made AVI an internationally recognized brand.
Traditionally, AVI has been in cooperation with ACM SIGCHI and AVI proceedings have been published by ACM Press and available in the ACM Digital Library.
