Description

The interaction between humans and computers is evolving rapidly, impacting every aspect of human and organizational life. This book presents the latest developments in this field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI). It discusses issues related End User Computing, as well as issues related to the human side of IT. This book will set a framework for the social and organizational issues related to IT, giving emphasis to its role as facilitator of social relationships, enabling the development of the organizational and individual intelligence and helping to improve human conditions. In Issues of Human Computer Interaction, models and theories are presented together with practical cases that will help students, lecturers, researchers and managers to have a clear idea of what is going on in HCI, today.

Reviews and Testimonials

In this book, individuals can find many contributions from different specialists in Computer Based Systems. They provide a new perspective for computer interaction centered in human aspects. In this field, the human aspects are the key to success for all organizations and the true soul of information systems.

– Antonio Serrano, Universidade de Evora, Portugal

This book discusses a pertinent and interesting subject. The HCI is a multidisciplinary area and the most important contributions have been advanced by several disciplines, especially from computational science, psychology, sociology, and ergonomics. The virtue of this book is precisely to put in evidence and to help to conciliate the different contributions from those areas to HCI. Much care has been taken in the development of this book. It should be a recommended book to professionals of the HCI area, but also a textbook to be used in the subjects dealing with HCI.

– Mario Lousa, Instituto Superior Politecnico Gaya, Portugal

Lest there be any misunderstanding, this is not just another book about designing Graphical User Interfaces. This series of essays pulls together the many threads associated with the design, implementation and maintenance of contemporary IT installations, but focuses mainly on the human issues associated with change, as people adapt to cope with the demands of knowledge-based, learning organizations. As such, the collection is a valuable reference for all those involved with e-business and e-commerce, highlighting as it does the multi-disciplinary aspects of successful designing for people, whether they work alone, in small teams, or in large organizational groups.

– Ana M. Correia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal

A valuable resource for those interested in HCI; either to apply within a profession at a learning stage or for research reasons. The diversity of the articles make it clear that HCI goes beyond the way humans and computers interact.

– Joao Carvalho, University of Minho, Portugal

In the so-called knowledge-based society, Information Technologies and Systems should not be seen as an end in itself. Instead, they should be understood as human-made tools that facilitate the ever present human quest for knowledge and life meaning. This book is an important contribution to build that understanding.

– Isabel Ramos, University of Minho, Portugal

Issues of Human Computer Interaction presents some of the latest developments in the field. It helps to set a framework for the social and organizational issues related to IT. Recommended. All levels.
