Abstract
The members of the deaf communities have been excluded for many years from society and their own culture. Deaf culture is a term applied to the social movement that holds deafness to be a difference in human experience (which includes the right to use Sign Language) rather than a disability. The deaf suffer, daily, through life-threatening situations that go unattended, mostly due to lack of awareness, proper practices, and policies, among others. The Deaf are in dire need of acknowledgment of their plight, in particular by Health and Social Care practitioners, politicians, and researchers. This chapter calls attention to this minority and its needs, including social, political, citizenship, strategies, and polices dimensions. It presents a Human-Computer Interaction architecture with which to inform the design of Information and Communication Technologies to aid Health and Social Care professionals in their work with the deaf.

Distance Learning Essentials
Human-computer interaction (HCI) or, alternatively, man-machine interaction (MMI) or computer-human interaction is the study of interaction between people (users) and computers. It is an interdisciplinary subject, relating computer science with many other fields of study and research. Interaction between users and computers occurs at the user interface (or simply interface), which includes both software and hardware, for example, general purpose computer peripherals and large-scale mechanical systems such as aircraft and power plants.

How Semantic Web Technologies can Support the Mediation between Supply and Demand in the ICT Market: The Case of Customer Relationship Management
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is a discipline that studies the design of the interaction between human users and computers and thus the design of User Interfaces (UI). HCI is typically concerned with the goal of defining UI enabling a user-friendly interaction, and takes into account usability and accessibility issues. Roughly speaking, usability refers to the provision of an easy access to a system functionality, while accessibility takes into account the universal access (in particular for impaired people) to all system features.
