Call for papers on Service Design

The academic journal Behaviour and Information Technology has accepted to publish a special issue on ‘Services and Human-Computer Interaction: New Opportunities’. A call for papers, explaining the topic and procedure has been sent out. You can also download it here.

The editors of this special issue are Peter Wild (Cambridge University), Neil Maiden (City University London) and Geke van Dijk (STBY).

The deadline for paper submissions is 28 February 2010. The journal will be published both online and in hard copy format by Taylor & Francis.

We welcome a broad range of papers that are practical, empirical, or theoretical in orientation, in addition to tightly argued polemics and theoretically informed review papers.
