About i-com

i-com is an international scientific journal that is devoted to different topics around Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), media design, usability, engineering and systems evaluation, software ergonomics, cooperative systems, e-learning, mobile and ubiquitous systems, user-adaptive systems, agent development tools and methods for media in different application fields (including e-business, knowledge management, leisure and entertainment, transport, engineering, and medicine), barrier-free systems design, and the social aspects of information and communication technologies.

The journal seeks to build bridges between research and practice as well as between teaching and business, emphasizing interdisciplinary teamwork and application-oriented solutions. We particularly aim at publishing cross-disciplinary research showing the practical application of the research.

The journal is supported by the special interest group on “Human-Computer Interaction” (FB MCI) at the German Association for Informatics (GI).
