Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is an interdisciplinary field that has attracted researchers, educators, and practitioners from many different disciplines. To better utilize information communication technologies, we need to better understand the interplay among users, tasks, technology, and environment in the context of e-business applications and services.
OBJECTIVE OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE:
The objective of the special issue is to provide an open and constructive discussion forum of important HCI research issues related to the history, reference disciplines, theories, practice, methodologies, techniques, new development, and applications of the ways humans interact with information communication technologies, especially in the business, managerial, organizational, social and/or cultural contexts.
The editors are looking for interesting and novel research that address important HCI challenges in today's electronic communities and organizations by drawing upon theories and/or methodologies from all relevant reference disciplines. The special issue is open to all types of research methodologies (e.g., conceptualization, theory development, case study, action research, experimentation, survey, simulation).
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
Informed user interface design and evaluation for all types of business and organizational applications such as:
