Special Issue on HCI Enabled Augmentative Communication for Ubiquitous Applications
Theme
Ubiquitous computing, also known as ambient or pervasive computing, is the intensity of work, residential, and commute settings with interconnected gadgets. Because of ambient information gathering and application, smooth, simple gateways, and flexible money transfers, such integrated techniques could enhance such environments and transit options significantly more pleasant and efficient. The fundamental goal of ubiquitous computing is to create linked intelligent things that make connectivity and data sharing smoother and much less intrusive. Moreover, autonomous systems increasingly replace people in many activities and will soon be pervasive and part of everyday life. Additionally, ubiquitous computing has increased its position in various industries, such as self-driving cars, Internet of Things applications, health informatics, industrial robotics and autonomous application, advanced agricultural framework, and application related to industrial 4.0. Many technology supplier's specialists are working tirelessly to build next-generation augmentative communication systems that will suit consumers' ever-increasing demands. Hence, considerable advancements in augmentative communication are required for personalized and pervasive applications.
The convergence of augmentative communication with human-computer Interaction enables persons with hearing impairments to express their communicative purpose and interact. It provides an alternate and convenient approach for consumers to share through modern communication equipment facilitated by Human-computer interaction. HCI using augmentative communication is accomplished using digitally outputs derived from the user's facial expressions, gestures, sign language, texts, emails, and pictures. Besides, the primary disadvantages of current augmentative communication devices are their inability to deal with persons who possess non-verbal communication abilities. Hence augmentative communication enabled human-computer interaction framework presents an ideal solution to the issues raised above by providing more inventive methods to express human ideas and emotions. Even though recent achievements in augmentative communication enabled human-computer Interaction, both areas are still in the early stages of research and need more improvement.
The use of human-computer Interaction assisted particular plans and design methodologies for augmentative communication would result in significant advancements in supporting persons with speech difficulties while also increasing the relevance of AC in ubiquitous applications. Further, it has as the convergence of augmentative communication with human-computer Interaction would aid in ubiquitous applications like self-driving cars, Internet of Things applications, health informatics, industrial robotics and autonomous application, advanced agricultural framework, and application related to industrial 4.0. Hence, this special issue focuses on Human-Computer Interaction enabled Augmentative Communication for Ubiquitous Applications. The list of topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
    • Advanced frameworks, tools, and methods in Human-Computer Interaction enabled augmentative communication ubiquitous applications
    • Futuristic HCI enabled augmentative communication for speech and language processing in ubiquitous applications
    • HCI enabled augmentative communication collaborative decision-making systems for individuals with hearing incapacities
    • HCI enabled augmentative communication for overcoming the human hinders in automation of imminent ubiquitous applications
    • Cognitive artificial intelligence for HCI enabled augmentative communication
    • HCI enabled augmentative communication for context-aware ubiquitous applications
    • Security, trust, and privacy in HCI enabled augmentative communication for pervasive applications
    • HCI enabled augmentative communication to content distribution networks for ubiquitous computing

Signal Processing Techniques for Sustainable Communication in Underwater Acoustic Networks
Aims
Communication systems have come a long way since humans discovered first how to communicate. From smartphones to holographic projections, a lot has changed with the advent of technology. Now it is possible to communicate underwater as well. Underwater acoustic communication is the process of sending and receiving messages in an underwater environment. Hydrophones are the most commonly used device. The complexity of such communication systems exists due to the limited bandwidth, heavy signal attenuation, low data rates, time variations, and multi-path propagation. In order to address these critical issues, innovative signal processing systems are being used. Iterative equalization and decoding and spatial multiplexing methods of signal processing have been proven to enhance the robustness and performance of such underwater acoustic networks. Research in signal processing for underwater communication is majorly focused on the standardization of channel models and feedback-based underwater acoustic systems. The former issue can be addressed using techniques like statistical models and nominal propagation models. However, due to the heterogeneity of underwater surfaces and complex environments, categorised and tailored models might have to be created. Future research can focus on a unified model that includes a repository of observed channel responses.
The latter issue relating to feedback is helpful in developing smart underwater acoustic systems for the next generation. These can be achieved using a number of innovative tools like directive transmission, adaptive power control, adaptive positioning, and adaptive modulation. The advantages of such feedback systems include active time reversal, excitation in single mode etc. Future research in this area can focus on security and privacy, spatial division multiplexing, and point-to-point links. Peer-to-peer networks are being integrated with cellular-based centralized networking to develop bandwidth-efficient underwater acoustic networks. It has been demonstrated that information-based, software-define, and mobility-aware architecture is the key to addressing challenges like large communication delays and degrading network efficiency. The future of sustainable underwater acoustic networks relies heavily on the combination of communication, sensing, and navigation solutions, reliable network communications among Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), and sustainable implementation. The cost, implementation, and availability of such underwater communication systems can also be significantly increased with the help of lighter and more sustainable hardware and software tools.
Scopes
Topics of Interest of the special issue include the following:
    • Development of active real-time ocean monitoring and observation systems using peer-to-peer networks.
    • Design and development of a feedback system for shallow-water acoustic networks.
    • Innovative signal processing models for underwater acoustic networks in sea surfaces with large time variances.
    • Development of a smart data-driven learning system for tuning acoustic links in an underwater environment.
    • Design and development of a smart underwater acoustic network for oil exploration systems.
    • Baseband signal processing for sustainable communication in underwater acoustic networks.
    • Adaptive modulation frameworks for enhanced performance of underwater acoustic networks.
    • Optimization of security features in a multi-user underwater acoustic system.
    • Methods to mitigate interference and noise in underwater acoustic signals.
    • Novel techniques for the development of an affordable and unified model for underwater acoustic networks and signal processing.
