  • Studies of Work and the Workplace in HCIby Graham Button; Wes Sharrock

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2009; US$ 30.00

    This book has two purposes. First, to introduce the study of work and the workplace as a method for informing the design of computer systems to be used at work. We primarily focus on the predominant way in which the organization of work has been approached within the field of human-computer interaction (HCI), which is from the perspective of ethnomethodology.... more...

  • Human-in-the-Loop Simulationsby Ling Rothrock; S. Narayanan

    Springer 2011; US$ 179.00

    "Human-in-the-Loop Simulations" is a compilation of articles from experts in the design, development, and use of human-in-the-loop simulations. The first section of the handbook consists of papers on fundamental concepts in human-in-the-loop simulations, such as object-oriented simulation development, interface design and development, and... more...

  • High Fidelity Haptic Renderingby Miguel A. Otaduy; Ming C. Lin

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2006; US$ 40.00

    The human haptic system, among all senses, provides unique and bidirectional communication between humans and their physical environment. Yet, to date, most human-computer interactive systems have focused primarily on the graphical rendering of visual information and, to a lesser extent, on the display of auditory information. Extending the frontier... more...

  • Recent Trends of Mobile Collaborative Augmented Reality Systemsby Leila Alem; Weidong Huang

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    The use of mobile collaborative AR has expended rapidly in recent years, due to the major advances in hardware and networking. The application areas are diverse and multidisciplinary. Recent Trends of Mobile Collaborative Augmented Reality Systems provides a historical overview of previous mobile collaborative AR systems, presents case studies of latest... more...

  • Activity Theory in HCIby Victor Kaptelinin; Bonnie Nardi

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2012; US$ 35.00

    Activity theory -- a conceptual framework originally developed by Aleksei Leontiev -- has its roots in the socio-cultural tradition in Russian psychology. The foundational concept of the theory is human activity, which is understood as purposeful, mediated, and transformative interaction between human beings and the world. Since the early 1990s, activity... more...

  • HCI Theoryby Yvonne Rogers

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2012; US$ 35.00

    Theory is the bedrock of many sciences, providing a rigorous method to advance knowledge, through testing and falsifying hypotheses about observable phenomena. To begin with, the nascent field of HCI followed the scientific method borrowing theories from cognitive science to test theories about user performance at the interface. But HCI has emerged... more...

  • Vision-Based Interactionby Matthew Turk; Gang Hua

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 50.00

    In its early years, the field of computer vision was largely motivated by researchers seeking computational models of biological vision and solutions to practical problems in manufacturing, defense, and medicine. For the past two decades or so, there has been an increasing interest in computer vision as an input modality in the context of human-computer... more...

  • Adaptive Interactionby Stephen J. Payne; Andrew Howes

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 35.00

    This lecture describes a theoretical framework for the behavioural sciences that holds high promise for theory-driven research and design in Human-Computer Interaction. The framework is designed to tackle the adaptive, ecological, and bounded nature of human behaviour. It is designed to help scientists and practitioners reason about why people choose... more...

  • Transnational Aspects of End-user Oriented E-services in the Baltic Sea Regionby Gunnar Prause; Kristina Hunke; Friederike Thessel

    BWV Berliner Wissenschafts-Verlag 2013; US$ 37.89

    Hauptbeschreibung This volume contains the final output of the European project "EGOPRISE - E-GOvernment solutions as instruments to qualify the public sector for the specific needs of small and medium sized enterPRISEs (SMEs) in the rural BSR". The consortium of the EGOPRISE project consists of 22 partner institutions from eight countries around... more...
