HICSS 2007: HCI Mini-Track

Hawaii International Conference on Systems Sciences
Mini-Track: Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)
(Offered as part of the Human and Computer Collaboration Technologies Track)


The aim of this mini-track is to provide a forum for HCI researchers to exchange a broad and comprehensive range of issues related to the design, development, and assessment of human-computer interaction. Appropriate papers for the HCI mini-track will draw on the broadest range of research methodologies including developmental, conceptualization, theorization, case study, hermeneutic, action research, experimentation, survey, simulation, and so on. Likewise, a broad range of reference disciplines will be appropriate for participation in the HCI mini-track, including: computer science, information systems, consumer behavior, psychology, organizational sciences, and so on. Given the fast pace of change within this HCI area – new applications, new types of users, new types of devices, and so on – papers that help to bridge academic research and industry practice are welcome. Given the diverse goals of this mini-track, there are a plethora of appropriate topics for papers; possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The behavioral, cognitive, and motivational aspects of human/computer interaction
  • User task analysis and modeling
  • The analysis, design, development, evaluation, and use of information systems
  • Guidelines and standards for interface design
  • User interface design and evaluation of the Web for:
    • B2B, B2C, C2C E-Commerce
    • Group collaboration
    • Negotiation and auction
  • Design and evaluation issues for small screen devices and M-Commerce
  • Interface issues in the development of other new interaction technologies
  • Information system usability engineering
  • The impact of interfaces/information technology on attitudes, behavior, performance, perception, and productivity
  • Implications and consequences of technological change on individuals, groups, society, and socio-technical units
  • Issues related to the elderly, the young, and special needs populations
  • Issues in teaching HCI courses
  • Other human factors issues related to HCI
  • Interface design for group and other collaborative environments
  • User/Developer experiences with particular interfaces, design environments, or devices
