ICIS 2007: HCI Track

ICIS 2007 Track on HCI


Human-computer interaction (HCI) is an interdisciplinary area that has attracted researchers, educators, and practitioners from several disciplines. In essence, it deals with the design, evaluation, adoption, and actual use of information technologies with a focus on improving users’ experience. In recent years, the area has developed at a fast pace with the increasingly pervasive use of information technologies. In particular, the importance of usability, which is a key aspect of HCI, has been significantly heightened by the prevalence of Internet and e-Commerce applications.

HCI is a main research stream in the field of information systems. HCI in IS is concerned with the ways people interact with information technologies in business, from managerial, organizational, social, and cultural perspectives. This track welcomes complete and research-in-progress papers that aim at advancing our understanding of human-computer interaction at the individual, group, organization, and society levels from any of these perspectives. Papers may use any type of research methods.

Examples of specific topics include but not limited to:

  • New HCI techniques and technologies

  • Personalization and adaptive interfaces

  • Pervasive and ubiquitous computing

  • Website design and evaluation

  • Interface designs on new platforms such as mobile technologies

  • Usability engineering and measurement

  • Aesthetic and affective computing

  • Online trust and online communities

  • Interface design methodologies

  • Design implications of online user behaviors

  • Design implications of diversity in users, technologies, and environments
