THCI is a high-quality peer-reviewed international scholarly journal on Human-Computer Interaction. It is published by AIS (http://aisnet.org/) and sponsored by AIS SIGHCI (http://sighci.org/). As an AIS journal, THCI is oriented to the Information Systems community, emphasizing applications in business, managerial, organizational, and cultural contexts. However, it is open to all related communities that share intellectual interests in HCI phenomena and issues. The editorial objective is to enhance and communicate knowledge about the interplay among humans, information, technologies, and tasks in order to guide the development and use of human-centered Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and services for individuals, groups, organizations, and communities.

Full CFP available here

Submission Deadline: Full papers due March 31, 2023

The goal of this THCI special issue is to invite a scholarly dialogue on the Metaverse, especially with regards to how the confluence of emerging technologies will shape individuals’ perceptions and behaviors in this extended reality as well as their ensuing consequences.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • What are key design considerations, challenges, and solutions for the Metaverse?
  • What affordances and design elements are key success factors for e-commerce and/or branding in the Metaverse?
  • How can emerging technologies, such as Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR), Virtual Reality (VR) be seamlessly integrated into the Metaverse? Under what contexts is each of them most relevant?
  • What business models are successful for the Metaverse?
  • How is value created and captured in the Metaverse?
  • How do new interface devices affect individuals’ perceptions and behaviors in the Metaverse?
  • How do individuals react to anonymity, curated identity, or transparency within the Metaverse?
  • How do teams interact and function in the Metaverse?
  • What is the role of data in the Metaverse?
  • What are key privacy, security, and ethical considerations in the Metaverse?
  • What are the downsides of the Metaverse and why do they manifest?
