Special Issue "Emotion, Cognition, and Empathy in Extended Reality Applications"
A special issue of Informatics (ISSN 2227-9709).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2020).
Interests: empathic computing, extended reality, human-computer interaction
Extended reality (XR) applications have now become advanced enough to be used in real-world use cases such as medicine, education, training, gaming, and remote collaboration. Over the last couple of decades, the majority of XR research primarily focused on engineering aspects of the system and recently has started focusing on the usability of the XR systems.
A new area of research in the XR domain is focusing on the emotional and cognitive aspects of the applications. The advent of mobile and affordable bio-sensors such as electroencephalography (EEG), electrocardiogram (ECG), and photoplethysmogram (PPG) have made it possible to measure and, in some cases, use neural activities and physiological signals in real-time during the usage of the XR applications.
In this Special Issue, we are inviting submissions where multidisciplinary work involving XR and Affective and/or Empathic Computing is performed. We are open to both original research and review articles. The scope of the submissions includes but is not limited to the following:
- Extended reality (AR/VR/MR/XR)
- Empathic computing in XR
- Affective computing in XR
- Adaptive XR interfaces
- Measuring emotions and cognition in XR

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 papers will be 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. Informatics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
