Absract: This revision features new examples and discussion involving mobile, wearables, and Internet-connected smart devices. However, the naming and organization remains the same except for three changes: I have shortened the name of one principle to extend its reach: "Color Blindness" is now simply Color and includes more than just color blindness. I've added one new principle, Aesthetics, and brought back two old principles, Discoverability and Simplicity. I dropped them from the list more than a decade ago when they had ceased to be a problem. Problems with Discoverability, in particular, have come roaring back. What has changed greatly is the level of detail: You will find many new sub-principles within each category, along with far more explanation, case studies, and examples.

Weblink: Conference Series Home Page
Absract: Emerging "intelligent" or "smart" environments react in an attentive, adaptive, and active (sometimes proactive) way to the presence and activities of humans and objects in order to provide intelligent/smart services to the inhabitants of these environments. Related technologies integrate sensing capabilities, processing power, reasoning mechanisms, networking facilities, applications and services, digital content, and actuating capabilities distributed in the surrounding environment. While a wide variety of different technologies is involved, the underlying goal is to either entirely hide their presence from users or to smoothly integrate within the surrounding context as enhanced environment artifacts rather than as technological gadgets. This way, the computing-oriented connotation of technology essentially fades-out or even disappears in the environment, providing seamless and unobtrusive interaction paradigms. Therefore, people and their social situation, ranging from individuals to groups, be them work groups, families or friends and their corresponding environments (office buildings, homes, public spaces, etc) are at the centre of the design considerations. The conference objective is to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of scientific information on theoretical, generic, and applied issues of Distributed, Ambient and Pervasive Interaction in novel technological environments.

Absract: The Journal of Interaction Science (JoIS) supports substantial scientific research on interaction science. We define interaction science as the scientific investigation of human / technology interactions. Examples include: * a psychology laboratory experiment that uses technology to record human performance and commentary; * an HCI experiment that takes a rigorously scientific approach; * relevant, experimental studies in cognitive psychology, neurocognitive psychology, artificial intelligence and the social sciences; * brain computer interface experiments and related interaction methods, interaction studies of scientific or medical technologies. Substantial empirical, theory-building or methodology studies/critiques are welcomed.

Absract: Multimedia and Human-Computer Interaction is a highly anticipated conference due to the popularity of the fields. MHCI is set to become an exciting event with the potential for continued growth throughout the years. MHCI is designed to bring together, researchers active in the two fields (and related sub-fields) to foster an environment conducive to exchanging ideas, information and research. This is especially important since these fields can largely benefit from increased collaboration as interactive multimedia is becoming a rather dominant field of technology. By bridging the gap between multimedia and HCI, this will allow for a deeper understanding of the two fields and understand their importance in our future.

Keywords: hci-sites:conferences
Weblink: Conference Web Page
Absract: The ACM Symposium on Spatial User Interaction (SUI) is the first international symposium focused on the user interface challenges that appear when users interact in the space where the flat, two-dimensional, digital world meets the volumetric, physical, three-dimensional (3D) space we live in. This considers both spatial input and 3D output, with an emphasis on the issues around interaction between humans and systems. Due to the advances in 3D technologies, spatial interaction is now more relevant than ever. Powerful graphics engines and high-resolution screens are now ubiquitous in everyday devices, such as tablets and mobile phones. Moreover, new forms of input, such as multi-touch, finger and body tracking technologies are now easily available. In this environment, spatial UIs are transitioning out of the research community and game industry. More and more commercial 3D systems with spatial interaction capabilities exist, many priced at the consumer level. Until now, the challenges, limitations, and advantages of using this third dimension for human-computer interfaces have not been well understood. These questions will only become more relevant as the associated technologies continue to cross the barrier towards wide adoption.

Absract: The recommendations in this article reflect current thinking on language for writing in the academic accessibility community. Certain words or phrases can (intentionally or unintentionally) reflect bias or negative, disparaging, or patronizing attitudes toward people with disabilities and in fact any identifiable group of people. Because language can convey these things, it can influence our impressions, attitudes, and even actions. Choosing language that is neutral, accurate, and represents the preference of the groups to which it refers can convey respect and integrity.

Absract: On this page a summary is given of end user computing technologies from the 1950s to the present day that have influenced work on enabling end user programming. This begins with the early interactive computing environments that put ordinary users rather than specialists in the 'driving seat' of computer software. These were the forerunners of PC (personal) computers that gave users the opportunity to use computers for business, education, and at home. This history examines how each technology has assisted in moving towards a goal of making it possible for users to generate their own content.

Absract: ICU is a mature, widely used set of C/C++ and Java libraries providing Unicode and Globalization support for software applications. ICU is widely portable and gives applications the same results on all platforms and between C/C++ and Java software. ICU is released under a nonrestrictive open source license that is suitable for use with both commercial software and with other open source or free software. Here are a few highlights of the services provided by ICU: * Code Page Conversion: Convert text data to or from Unicode and nearly any other character set or encoding. ICU's conversion tables are based on charset data collected by IBM over the course of many decades, and is the most complete available anywhere. * Collation: Compare strings according to the conventions and standards of a particular language, region or country. ICU's collation is based on the Unicode Collation Algorithm plus locale-specific comparison rules from the Common Locale Data Repository, a comprehensive source for this type of data. * Formatting: Format numbers, dates, times and currency amounts according the conventions of a chosen locale. This includes translating month and day names into the selected language, choosing appropriate abbreviations, ordering fields correctly, etc. This data also comes from the Common Locale Data Repository. * Time Calculations: Multiple types of calendars are provided beyond the traditional Gregorian calendar. A thorough set of timezone calculation APIs are provided. * Unicode Support: ICU closely tracks the Unicode standard, providing easy access to all of the many Unicode character properties, Unicode Normalization, Case Folding and other fundamental operations as specified by the Unicode Standard. * Regular Expression: ICU's regular expressions fully support Unicode while providing very competitive performance. * Bidi: support for handling text containing a mixture of left to right (English) and right to left (Arabic or Hebrew) data. * Text Boundaries: Locate the positions of words, sentences, paragraphs within a range of text, or identify locations that would be suitable for line wrapping when displaying the text.

Absract: The WAI-WAI-ARIA Primer introduces developers to the use of WAI-ARIA [ARIA] for addressing the accessibility of dynamic Web content for people with disabilities. This primer explains the accessibility problems posed by hybrid technologies such as Dynamic Hypertext Markup Language (DHTML) and Asynchronous Java and XML (Ajax). It introduces the technologies to map controls, Ajax live regions, and events to accessibility application programming interfaces (APIs), including custom controls used for Rich Internet Applications. The primer also describes new navigation techniques to mark common Web elements with roles such as menus, primary content, secondary content, banner information and other types of Web structures. These new technologies can be used to improve the accessibility and usability of Web resources by people with disabilities, without extensive modification to existing libraries of Web resources. This document is part of the WAI-ARIA suite described in the WAI-ARIA Overview.

Absract: Abstract information refers to information that a user can't directly obtain just by visualizing the spatial information of objects in a 3D virtual environment (3DVE). This thesis first reviews the state of the art on interactive 3DVEs development, abstract information visualization techniques and the evaluation of interactive 3DVEs. Then, this thesis presents a conceptual model, reusable toolkit and usability evaluation methodology for comparing the usability of different abstract information visualization techniques. In order to control the navigation skill variable, the design of a constrained navigation approach for teleporting the user from one user context to another is proposed. Finally, this thesis presents case studies for validating the proposed conceptual model, toolkit and usability evaluation methodology by performing usability testing experiments. The contributions of this thesis are a conceptual model, reusable toolkit and usability evaluation methodology for measuring and comparing the usability of abstract information visualization techniques in interactive 3DVEs.

Absract: Years ago, we came across the work of Noriaka Kano, a Japanese expert in customer satisfaction and quality management. In studying his writing, we learned about a model he created in the 1980s, known as the Kano Model. This model predicted the reaction of users as the key elements of Flickr's personalized homepage propagated to other web sites. It predicted why users were initially delighted and why the delight faded over time. We find the Kano Model to be an indispensable tool for designers. Let's take the model apart, so we can understand why it's so useful.

Absract: User experience is how a person feels during all phases of use of an interactive system, and acquires renewed fundamental importance in new and emerging mobile, ubiquitous and omnipresent interaction contexts. The scope of user experience design extends to all aspects of the user's interaction with a product, how it is perceived, learned, and used, and addresses design knowledge, methods and practices, with a focus on a deeply human-centered process. In this context, usability is revisited as a fundamental aspect of user experience. The conference solicits papers reporting results, covering a broad range of research and development activities on a variety of related topics.

Absract: The idea for establishing a special dedicated forum to researching learning analytics was motivated by several important indicators: 1. The growth of data surpasses the ability of organizations to make sense of it. This concern is particularly pronounced in relation to knowledge, teaching, and learning. 2. Learning institutions and corporations make little use of the data learners "throw off" in the process of accessing learning materials, interacting with educators and peers, and creating new content. 3. In an age where educational institutions are under growing pressure to reduce costs and increase efficiency, analytics promises to be an important lens through which to view and plan for change at course and institutions levels.

Weblink: www.uie.com/articles/why_sketching
Absract: It seemed the conference room got brighter, as if, for the team staring at the whiteboard, light bulbs just went on. There was a collective sense of "Ohhh, I get it now." It was the culmination of a very confusing discussion, where everyone thought they knew what they were talking about, but, as it turns out, nobody was on the same page. In a moment of frustration, one junior team member -- a designer -- stepped up to the whiteboard and declared, "This is what I think we're talking about." Turns out the junior designer got it wrong. Yet his design spurred the idea's progenitor to rush to the board, grab the pen, and quickly correct the mistakes. That's when the group sighed their collective "ohhh" and the room lit up. The shift had happened. Up until now, they were talking about WHAT they were trying to do. Now, they could talk about HOW they would do it. The WHAT was now on the whiteboard -- and in everybody's head. For the first time, it was the same WHAT everywhere

Title: How to Create a UX Design Library
Author: Curtis, Nathan
Date: 2010-09-14
Weblink: www.uie.com/articles/design_library
Absract: A design library is a collection of guidelines & standards that describe a design system and maybe template assets to go with it. Creating a library for an experience of any scale is no trivial matter. It's not like you open up a code editor, chop things up, throw a ZIP file to some marketer and say, "Here you go. Enjoy!" You've got to have a plan. So, let's assume you've done due diligence: your design system is stable and mature, and you've answered all the right questions to justify the effort. You are ready to get started. What is the process? The process of creating a library involves many different activities across four sequential phases: * Analyze: understanding what it is, how it fits into your process, and what it'll contain * Assemble: building it, including documentation, template assets, and how you'll publish them * Adopt: communicating and getting everyone onboard * Adapt: administering & evolving it over time, through successive releases Once you've broken down the plan into four chunks, it's easier to zero conversation in on specifics: individual activities that may be obvious (documenting guidelines) and what's not (oh, yeah, you're right, I need a communications plan!).

Title: Five Indispensable Skills for UX Mastery
Author: Spool, Jared M.
Date: 2010-08-03
Weblink: www.uie.com/articles/indispensable_skills
Absract: For practicing User Experience Designers, one of the most important laws isn't Fitts' Law, which helps us understand how to design interactive elements. Nor is it Hick's Law, which describes how long people take to make decisions. It's Sturgeon's Law, which tells us that 99% of everything is crap. It's easy to produce a poor quality result -- anyone without the critical skills is capable of it and there are a ton of those people floating around. Yet if we want to be really excellent at what we do, what are those essential skills? What should we be practicing to become a master? This is exactly the question we set out to answer as we studied the work of the master UX professional. These masters were folks from all different disciplines within the UX world-interaction design, information architecture, user research, copywriting, and visual design. While they produced different deliverables and end products, it was clear that each of the masters we talked to had built their mastery upon some common skills -- skills that turn out to be indispensable when they're trying to produce excellent results.

Absract: As of May 2008, there were 40.04 million unique users accessing the mobile Internet at least once a month (Nielsen, 2008). This number increased by 73% over a period of two years (i.e., 2006-2008). As the prevalence of PDA and other smart devices with Internet connectivity increase, so does the need for attention to the usability of these devices. Much of the body of Web usability literature has been done on computing in a stationary environment. And although much of the existing research applies to the mobile Web, some principles need to be altered to address the unique problems associated with this form of Web access.

Absract: Eye tracking technology has been used many areas including visual systems, cognitive linguistics, and product design. Newer technology is easier to use and less invasive. Older equipment was head-mounted and more modern equipment looks just like a monitor. Eye tracking is a useful tool for web design. It can show what areas of a page are grabbing a user's attention and areas that are being ignored. Eye tracking is useful in showing how a user searches for information.

Many papers concentrated on building the human augmentation technologies, which is necessary for them to emerge in the real world. However, again as last year, few papers were investigating the ethical or safety issues of augmented human technologies. The next edition may bring more papers on this essential aspect that must be taken into account for a long term success of these technologies.

Absract: Information access is at the core of Google's mission -- to make the world's information universally accessible and useful. That's why in addition to crawling, indexing and ranking billions of websites, images, videos and other content, we also work to make that content available in all languages and in accessible formats. We want to make information available to everyone, and that includes people with disabilities, such as blindness, visual impairment, color deficiency, deafness, hearing loss and limited dexterity. We've found that providing alternative access modes like keyboard shortcuts, captions, high-contrast views and text-to-speech technology helps everyone, not just people with disabilities. For example, keyboard shortcuts help power users get things done more quickly without using a mouse, speech-to-text technology enables people to skim and search audio content, and custom product themes give people more opportunities to personalize.

Absract: For years, we've known about the importance of completing tasks. Not the items on your to-do list -- the users' tasks. What we found in our research over the last 10 years is that practically every measure of users' performance correlates strongly with the users completing their task. Users who achieve their objective believe the web site looks more professional, rate it as more fun, tell us it runs faster, and are more satisfied with the site. There's no doubt: if you want users to love your site, make sure they complete their tasks. Yet, even though we know task completion is important, many teams don't have a strategy for it. They adopt a "launch and leave" approach to their sites, moving on to the next project once they've pushed something out the door.

Users decide whether they are going to 'buy' your information (i.e., content) or your goods and services. E-commerce relationships depend on trust and lack of trust has been identified as one of the most formidable barriers in building online relationships.

Summary
References
Absract: There is some evidence to suggest that Web users are becoming more skeptical of the information they find online. Many Web sites contain incorrect or misleading information (Fogg, et al., 1999) [1] and some are pure hoaxes. As a result, designers face increasing pressure to enhance the credibility of their Web sites. According to Dictionary.com, credibility is defined as believability or trustworthy. Tseng & Fogg (1999) found that in their research believability is a good synonym for credibility [2]. The academic literature on credibility dates back to the 1950s and has to do with the fields of psychology and communication. Scholars tend to agree that credibility is a perceived quality and has two key components: trustworthiness and expertise.

Absract: In this article, I tell a story about a client who found a way to dramatically increase their e-commerce site's revenues with a couple of simple changes. While the story is interesting, the story-behind-the-story is just as interesting. The client had hired us because they were concerned about checkout-process abandonment. Their analytics were showing a 13% drop off in sales, which, based on the average value of the abandoned shopping carts, was worth about $1.2 million a year in additional revenue. Checkout-process abandonment is common in e-commerce sites and something that you can easily detect with your site's usage logs. You just look at the number of people who get to the first screen and then the number of people who actually complete the transaction. Everyone who doesn't make it is an abandonment. When the team contacted us, they'd already pretty much decided what the problem was and how they were going to fix it, even though they had never watched any shoppers make purchases. And they were dead wrong. Not only was their fix not going to help, our research showed that it was going to increase abandonment.

Keywords: hci-sites:articles

Absract: Recessions are a harrowing experience for everyone. Organizations turn their inspection goggles on every project, looking for ways to cut costs and extract more value. "Is this project doing what we need, right now?" becomes the mantra, as everything comes under review. In design, it's no different. Inevitably, great design is about producing both long and short term value for the organization. Something that is well designed not only delights the users but shows up positively on the income statement. We've been looking closely at the practices of some great organizations and one of the common threads we see is how well they match their design goals to the priorities of the business. This is especially important in tight economic times, when the organizations are looking to cut anything that doesn't show immediate value. The best teams have put this practice into place.

Date: 2009-
Standard number: HCI Bibliography: SocInfo Proceedings / SocInfo Papers DBLP: socinfo
Keywords: hci-sites:conferences
Weblink: www.socinfo.eu/
Absract: The two perspectives of study: of social sciences that consider the impact of ICT on social behavior, and of social informatics that considers how ICT can be improved to realize social goals, are two sides of one coin. Social informatics can and must base its research on findings from the social sciences. On the other hand, social science can find applications for its theoretical findings for improvements of ICT technology. These applications already have a real business value today, for example, in software for the support and management of virtual teamwork, available from many major ICT technology companies. Using the Internet as a source of information about social phenomena also has a real business value, as many e-marketing companies attempt to base their analyses on Web mining. The conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo) has been launched as an attempt to bring together representatives of computer science and the social sciences, recognizing that Social Informatics is an interdisciplinary domain. The interdisciplinary makeup of the conference is reflected in the Program Committee that includes both computer scientists and social scientists. All articles submitted for the conference have received reviews from specialists from both domains. Authors of accepted papers also have backgrounds in computer science and the social sciences. This emphasis on balancing the inputs of computer scientists and social scientists is motivated by the desire to make the conference a meeting place between the two disciplines.

The findings indicate, among other things, that although library catalogs are often thought of as discovery tools, the catalog's delivery-related information is just as important to end users. In addition, the report presents findings on: * The metadata elements that are most important to end users in determining if an item will meet his or her needs * The enhancements end users would like to see made in online library catalogs to assist them in consistently identifying appropriate materials * The enhancements librarians would recommend for online library catalogs to better assist them in their work The findings indicate, among other things, that although library catalogs are often thought of as discovery tools, the catalog's delivery-related information is just as important to end users.

Absract: Web sites, just like buildings, can be designed to meet the needs of all people, including those with disabilities. Unfortunately, many (if not most) current web pages and web-based resources contain major access barriers. This site aspires to be a clearinghouse for studies involving the collection of accessibility data pertaining to web sites and online resources in education, particularly in higher education.
Absract: Such studies and their findings are important for several reasons: (1) They provide institutions with a realistic picture about the accessibility of their web sites. (2) They supply advocates for a barrier-free online environment with data by which to further their cause. (3) They enable librarians contemplating the purchase of online resources to make better informed procurement decisions. (4) To vendors of online products, they identify product features that need improvement. (5) By providing models for online accessibility research they are likely to stimulate further research in this area. The audience for this resource guide include producers of online resources, including web designers; college and university instructors, administrators, and policy makers; distance educators; librarians; and disability professionals.

Absract: Software is created for and with a wide range of stakeholders, from customers to management, from value-added providers to customer service personnel. These stakeholders work with teams of software engineers to develop and evolve software systems that support their activities. All of these people and their interactions are central to software development. Thus, it is crucial to investigate the constantly changing human and cooperative aspects of software development, both before and after deployment, in order to understand current software practices, processes, and tools. In turn, this enables us to design tools, methods and support mechanisms for software engineering. This workshop provides a unified forum for discussing high quality research studies, models, methods, and tools for human and cooperative aspects of software engineering. The series of CHASE workshops continue to be a meeting place for the academic, industrial, and practitioner communities interested in this area, and provide an opportunity to present and discuss works-in-progress.

Absract: The PETRA Conference brings together different types of technology to address an important social and healthcare issue: as the world's population ages, there is growing interest in solutions for the in-home care of the elderly as well as for the care of people with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other disabilities or traumas. PETRA (which means "stone" in Greek) reflects the needs of the domestic environment, or "Oikos" as it was known in ancient Greece, but from a technological perspective. People's living environments are particularly important in an increasingly crowded and complex world where the need for inclusiveness and connectivity with the rest of the world is key. PETRA addresses the fact that, as people grow older, they will increasingly rely on technology to be able to stay in their homes.
