The International Journal of Creative Interfaces and Computer Graphics (IJCICG) provides coverage of the most innovative and cutting-edge computer graphics and interfaces. IJCICG focuses on the latest visual technologies that raise the bar for novelty, aesthetic beauty, sophistication, and utility. This scholarly resource encompasses the pragmatic and research aspects surrounding the design and creation of effective, novel, visual interfaces in support of creativity and productivity. This journal presents research that shows new ways of representing and interacting with information on desktops, mobile devices, and public and virtual spaces. IJCICG aims to be accessible to a wide range of readers by publishing articles with wide or cross-cutting appeal (as opposed to those focusing solely on mathematics or algorithms) and seeks revolutionary - not stepwise - results or visions. All papers should have some practical visual result, appeal, or focus.

Topics Covered

Topics to be discussed in this journal include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Advances in interfaces to support creativity, productivity, and expression
  • Aesthetic computing, visual explanations, and data visualization
  • Bleeding-edge web, RIA, and mobile interfaces
  • Cutting-edge interfaces and applications in practical creative fields such as engineering and design, digital art, entertainment, video gaming and computer animation, museums, performance, and other creative endeavors
  • Design of new styles of interaction-rich applications and services
  • Novel visual metaphors used for visualization or practical data mining
  • Societal impact and evaluation of graphical applications and interfaces
  • State of the art mobile applications with unique visual characteristics
  • Technologies and underpinnings that enable or support visually compelling interfaces
  • Trends in innovative and future interfaces
  • Use of visual elegance and simplicity

Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Creative Interfaces and Computer Graphics (IJCICG) is to bring together research, pragmatic work, and results revolving around the most innovative, fascinating, and technically advanced computer graphic applications and their human-computer interfaces. This journal's key themes include: design rationale and approach, software underpinnings, deployment, and interaction, with an emphasis on creative, cutting-edge, aesthetic, and innovative uses of graphics in applications and human-computer interfaces. Articles in this journal are presented in a systematic but accessible style and emphasize their impact, extraordinary nature, and their positioning in this exciting field. Targeting researchers, developers, designers, user-experience engineers, artists, and planners, IJCICG supplies readers with a better understanding of the design and deployment of novel graphical applications and technologies on the desktop, the Web, mobile devices, and public spaces.

Reviews and Testimonials

Designing products and services people will fall in love with requires a solid understanding of human behavior and user needs, a toolkit of human-centered design methods, and a possibility to tap into new HCI research and innovations. In the era when the boundaries are blurring between the physical and the digital, it is highly useful to have a journal focusing on novel research and discoveries in human-computer interaction and visualization.

– Harri Kiljander, Director UI Design, Nokia

Modern lives are full of technological advancement, giving us new ways of working, learning, playing, being creative, and reaching previously inaccessible audiences. To maximise the benefits of these changes, we need to design and understand revolutionary interfaces and systems: having a journal focused on showcasing creative, novel, interesting, unusual, visionary systems is a great resource.

– Russell Beale, University of Birmingham, UK


Editor(s)-in-Chief Biography

Adérito Fernandes-Marcos graduated in Computer Science Engineering from the Nova University of Lisbon; got a PhD suma cum laude in Computer Graphics and Information Systems from the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany; and Habilitation, an academic degree for Full Professorship (Agregação) in Technology and Information Systems from the University of Minho. Between November 1997 and October 2005 he has been a Departments Head, then Executive Director of the Computer Graphics Centre (CCG), an Interface Institute of the University of Minho. On behalf of CCG he received the European IST Prize 2000: Grand Prize Winner for the TeleInViVo project and also the LAVAL Virtual 2002 – “Science et education” and “GRAND PRIX DU JURY 2002”, by the Laval Academy, Mayenne França, for the European project ARCHEOGUIDE.

He is Full Professor at the Portuguese Open University (Universidade Aberta), Lisbon, Portugal. He is the principal mentor and founder of the Doctoral Program in Digital Media-Art, being its current Director. Previously, he was an Assistant Professor at University of Minho, where he was responsible for the design of a variety of curricula in the fields of Multimedia, Information Systems and Computer Graphics, Technology and Digital Art for undergraduate and post-graduate courses. At this university, he was co-founder of the Masters Course in Computer Graphics and Virtual Environments (with three editions) and founder and first director of the Masters Course in Technology and Digital Art, actually in its fourth edition. He integrated the Executive Board of Eurographics from January 2002 until August 2005 and again since October 2008 until February 2013. He was the President of the Executive Board of the Eurographics Portuguese Chapter and reelected for a second term in 2010 until 2013. He is chairman of Artech-International Association for Computer Arts, an initiative in the field of digital/computer arts, that is responsible for the Artech - International Conference on Digital Arts. Since 2000, he is working as a regular consultant of Agency for Innovation, the European Association INTAS, European Commission and ZGDV (German Institute for Computer Graphics, Darmstadt, Germany). He is a member of Artech-International, Eurographics, ACM, IEEE and SIGRAPH. He is author and co-author of more than six dozen articles in refereed magazines, conference proceedings and book chapters.
