GHItaly21 – 4th Workshop on Games-Human Interaction
11 to 13 of July 2021

In Conjunction with CHItaly 2021 –
The biannual Conference of the Italian ACM SIGCHI Chapter

Submission deadline: April 23, 2021

The 4th Workshop on Games-Human Interaction – GHItaly21 is the fourth edition of a series of workshops focused on the multifaceted issues related to the design and development of human-game interfaces. GHItaly21 aims at establishing a common venue for scholars and industry practitioners, where they can exchange ideas on all the topic related to this multidisciplinary field, and possibly create new collaborations. The main goal of the event is to spur discussion on the development of new ways of researching, teaching, and working on HCI applied to design and production of video games. The application range of video games has to be intended in its broadest sense: from entertainment and to “serious” applied finalities (health, education, etc).

GHItaly21 will be held online in conjunction with the 14th Edition of CHItaly, the biannual Conference of the Italian ACM SIGCHI Chapter, from 11 to 13 of July 2021 in Bolzano.


The workshop aims at collecting contribution advancing the research applied to video games. Suggested topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Adaptive and Context-Aware Interfaces
  • Agency of objects
  • Artificial Intelligence applications
  • Biometric measures for interaction
  • Critical or meaningful play experience
  • Distributed and Online systems
  • Full-body Interaction
  • Game Design & Level Design
  • Human Computer Interaction applied to visual interfaces
  • Immersive VR systems
