Electronics : Special Issue "Combining Model-Based and Data-Driven Methods in Human–Computer Interaction"
Impact Factor: 2.9 (2022); 5-Year Impact Factor: 2.9 (2022)

The pervasiveness of modern computing systems, mainly based on embedded devices, has opened up the world of the human computer interface (HCI) to a set of different interaction methods (voice, text, classical GUIs, gestures, etc.). This richness of means by which humans can interact with machines is often enabled by artificial intelligence (AI), which is becoming more and more central in accessing complex computer-based systems. To this aim, the availability of a large quantity of data is critical in training and validating AI-based software.

Traditional software engineering methods oriented to the assurance of such properties are frequently based on models. In fact, model-based methods are crucial in modern HCIs. They allow designers to create accurate representations of user behavior, system dynamics, and contextual factors. By using models, designers can simulate interactions, predict user outcomes, and optimize interface design. These methods enhance usability, efficiency, and user satisfaction, leading to better HCI experiences. Other important non-functional features of HCIs are called to perform safety, privacy preservation, and fairness.

This Special Issue is devoted to the exploration of the relationship between model-based and data-driven approaches in building and assessing complex HCI systems, with particular interest on approaches focusing on critical systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Integration of model-based and data-driven methods for UI design in complex interactive systems.
Leveraging machine and deep learning techniques to improve model-based HCI design and assurance.
Utilizing data-driven approaches to enhance the accuracy and validity of model-based HCI predictions and simulations as well as model calibration.
Adaptive user interfaces.
Enhancing usability testing and verification.
Integration of cognitive models and machine learning algorithms for intelligent HCI design.
Adoption of data-driven approaches for human-centered design (HCD). Integration of explainable artificial intelligence for improving the interoperability of HCI and user satisfaction.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
