Ranking & Metrics Impact Score is a novel metric devised to rank conferences based on the number of contributing the best scientists in addition to the h-index estimated from the scientific papers published by the best scientists. See more details on our methodology page.

Research Impact Score: 0.70
Contributing Best Scientists: 4
H5-index:
Papers published by Best Scientists 5
Research Ranking (Computer Science) 330
Research Ranking (Psychology) 12
Research Ranking (Social Sciences and Humanities) 16

Overview

Top Research Topics at Interaction Design and Children?

  • Human–computer interaction (31.90%)
  • Multimedia (30.28%)
  • Mathematics education (10.09%)

Human–computer interaction, Multimedia, Mathematics education, Interaction design and Context (language use) are the subjects of interest in the conference. The studies on Human–computer interaction discussed can also contribute to research in the domains of Robot, Interface (Java) and Embodied cognition. The event explores issues in Multimedia which can be linked to other research areas like Session (computer science), Storytelling, Creativity and Set (psychology).

More specifically, the research on Game design in the event is related to Game Developer.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • Using the fun toolkit and other survey methods to gather opinions in child computer interaction (280 citations)
  • Some reflections on designing construction kits for kids (248 citations)
  • Ambient wood: designing new forms of digital augmentation for learning outdoors (244 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Interaction Design and Children:

The most cited papers tackle a plethora of topics, such as Multimedia, Human–computer interaction, Participatory design, Knowledge management and Context (language use). The subject of Storytelling, which is connected to the field of Digital storytelling and Creativity, serves as the foundation of the Multimedia research featured in the most cited publications. While work presented in the most cited papers provide substantial information on Human–computer interaction, it also covers topics in Gesture, Artificial intelligence and Wearable computer.

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2016 edition, 2.13% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 26.09% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 15.22% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 9.78% of all publications and 48.91% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
