We are very pleased to inform you that the second event of the series HCI Challenges in Human Movement Analysis has been accepted as a one-day workshop to be held with ACM AVI 2020 International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces (Island of Ischia, Italy).

Join us on Monday 8th June 2020 28th September 2020, on site or online, to share experiences, discuss the challenges and foster user experiences on  “Visual user interfaces for human motion”.

We invite users as well as designers, practitioners and researchers of systems having human-movement as input for interaction to discuss methods, design and evaluation to improve end-user engagement.

Participants are encouraged to submit position papers.

Call for participation 2020

“Visual user interfaces for human motion” – 8th June 2020
New date:  28th September 2020 –  Island of Ischia, Italy
*** Remote attendance will be facilitated ***


Visual interfaces are important in human motion to capture it, to visualize it, and to facilitate motion-based interactive systems.
Across multiple applications,  how to improve end-user engagement?

In the series of workshops on HCI Challenges for Human Movement Analysis, this second event aims at defining and discussing methods and experiences of design and use of visual interfaces for motion-based interaction.

We invite users as well as designers, practitioners and researchers of systems having human-movement as input for interaction to discuss challenges on
– design and evaluation
– machine processing
– human factors


  • Motion-based Interaction,
  • Full-body interaction,
  • (Multi)Sensory Interfaces,
  • Movement computing and motion capture,
  • Embodied interaction,
  • Natural user interfaces,
  • Gesture interaction and recognition,
  • Activity recognition,
  • Wearable devices,
  • Biofeedback


Participation is not limited to authors of position papers.
  • Online participation will be facilitated for authors of accepted position papers (no registration fee required).
  • On-site participation requires registration, participants can either register for the workshop only or attend the main conference.

Position papers present applications, case studies, design or evaluation methods outlining challenges in terms of

  • body movement data capture, analysis and visualization, e.g. sensors, graphical user interface,  multimodal feedback
  • user experience, e.g. instructions, requirements, evaluation
  • human factors, e.g. motor skills, ergonomics, limitations

Position papers

Up to 2 pages, excluding references (self-referencing welcome).
No specific format is required.
At least one author must attend the workshop presentations section, on-site or online.
  • Please email your submission to: papers@hcihumanmovement.org
  • Extended deadline: 28th July 31st July 2020 (“anywhere on Earth”).
  • Include authors names, affiliations and contact information.
  • Attached file: pdf
  • Additional links or illustrations are welcome.

Important dates

July 28th 31st: Submission deadline
August 21th: Notification of acceptance
September 28th: One-day workshop
September 28th – October 2nd: Main conference AVI 2020

Expected outcomes

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work for a book proposal.
