Human-Computer Interaction

Human-computer interaction (HCI) has advanced at a fast pace and is one of the enduring areas of interest for the field. It essentially deals with the design, evaluation, adoption, and use of information technology (IT), with a common focus on improved user performance and experience. HCI can be examined from an individual, organizational, managerial, psychological, social, or cultural perspective. However, the current trend toward a post-PC era characterized by multi-touch, direct manipulation interfaces and the claimed central role of the user experience provide novel challenges for HCI research and novel manifestations of HCI phenomena. Although much research has already been done in this area, advancements in the functionalities of IT continue to pose new questions of interest. For example, with the consumerization of IT and the emergence of gadgets such as smartphones and tablets, there are revolutionary changes in the nature of the human-computer interface. As a new generation of users, who are referred to as digital natives engage with information systems, their expectations about appropriate interfaces are likely to be very different. Finally, as IT spreads through most countries, there is a need to study the impacts of cultures and economic prosperity on the nature of appropriate information systems. This track focuses on issues related to the manner in which humans interact with technologies, information and tasks in organizational, managerial, cultural, and social contexts. We invite research papers that advance our understanding of HCI at the individual, work group, organization, and society levels. We particularly welcome controversial pieces that will challenge the audience’s thinking regarding taken-for-granted assumptions, models, and research practices. This track welcomes both traditional as well as innovative methodologies, including but not limited to social network analysis, ethnomethodology, and conversation analysis.
