The 11th International Conference on Distributed, Ambient and Pervasive Interactions (DAPI), an affiliated conference of the HCI International 2023 Conference, provides a forum for interaction and exchanges among researchers, academics, and practitioners in the field of HCI for DAPI environments. One focus of DAPI 2023 is to extend the scope from by now “traditional” configurations of one or several persons interacting with a limited number of smart devices, e.g., in a smart room, by moving towards ubiquitous smart environments like smart cities and smart ecosystems. This implies the contributions of additional disciplines providing more comprehensive perspectives.
