While the digital technology spreads to almost all societal and private domains and arenas, the value of the living, sensing, feeling, acting, vibrant and intelligent body, that is, the soma itself becomes increasingly the subject of the human-computer interaction (HCI) studies.

The Journal of Somaesthetics now invites articles that deal with the aesthetic relationship between technology and the soma.

The journal welcomes contributions that might be considered too theoretical in human-computer interaction dissemination channels.Read more about CfP Somaesthetics and Technology: extended deadline July 30
