Description & Coverage
Description:

In recent years, mobile technology has been one of the major growth areas in computing. Designing the user interface for mobile applications, however, is a very complex undertaking which is made even more challenging by the rapid technological developments in mobile hardware. Mobile human-computer interaction, unlike desktop-based interaction, must be cognizant of a variety of complex contextual factors affecting both users and technology.

The Handbook of Research on User Interface Design and Evaluation provides students, researchers, educators, and practitioners with a compendium of research on the key issues surrounding the design and evaluation of mobile user interfaces, such as the physical environment and social context in which a mobile device is being used and the impact of multitasking behavior typically exhibited by mobile-device users. Compiling the expertise of over 150 leading experts from 26 countries, this exemplary reference tool will make an indispensable addition to every library collection.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Adaptive and intelligent user interfaces
  • Assistive mobile technologies
  • Design for special needs groups
  • Ethnography
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • In-car user interfaces
  • Interacting artifacts
  • Mobile Communication
  • Mobile interaction techniques
  • Mobile Learning Applications
  • Mobile user interfaces
  • Novel interaction paradigms
  • Physical Environment
  • Social context
  • Unobtrusive interaction
  • User Interface Design
  • User interface evaluation
  • Visual interaction
  • Wearable Technologies
Reviews and Testimonials

The complementary combination of theoretical and practical content will enable readers to draw parallels with their own research or work, and apply and/or further the research efforts of others in their own projects.

– Joanna Lumsden, National Research Council of Canada, Canada

In this two-volume set, Lumsden collects 64 research papers addressing the complex issues surrounding the design and evaluation of mobile device user interfaces.

– Book News Inc. (2008)

This work gives a valuable framework for further research on user interface not only for mobile devices, but for all devices in general.

Editor/Author Biographies
Joanna Lumsden (PhD) is a senior lecturer/researcher in the School of Engineering & Applied Sci­ences at Aston University (Birmingham, UK) where she also manages the Aston Interactive Media (AIM) Lab. Prior to moving to Aston University in 2009, Joanna was a researcher with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the designer and lab manager for a state-of-the-art mobile human computer interaction (HCI) evaluation lab within the NRC facility. Joanna is also an adjunct professor with the Faculty of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of New Brunswick (Canada). She obtained her BSc in software engineering (Hons) from the University of Glasgow (Scotland, 1996), where she also later achieved her PhD in HCI in 2001. Her research interests and expertise are mainly in mobile HCI and associated evaluation techniques. She has served on program committees for several international HCI/general computer science conferences and was also editor of the Handbook of Research on User Interface Design and Evaluation for Mobile Technology.
