Human-Computer Interaction: Informing Design Utilizing Behavioral, Neurophysiological, and Design Science Methods Minitrack

The aim of this minitrack is to provide a forum for HCI researchers to exchange a broad range of issues related to the design of human-computer interaction by drawing upon diverse approaches, including behavioral, neurophysiological, and design science methods. Appropriate papers for the HCI mini-track will draw on the broadest range of research methodologies including, but not limited to, behavioral methods (e.g., case study, experimentation, survey, action research), neurophysiological tools (e.g., fMRI, eye tracking, HCI devices such as mice, touch screens and typing dynamics, skin conductance response), and design science approaches. Accordingly, a broad range of reference disciplines may be appropriate to draw upon to inform design, such as: computer science, information systems, consumer behavior, psychology, organizational sciences, neuroscience, neuroeconomics, and neuromarketing. Moreover, papers that help to bridge academic research and industry practice are welcome.

Given the diverse goals of this minitrack, there are a plethora of appropriate topics; possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Behavioral, neurophysiological, and design aspects of human-computer interaction
  • Neuroscientific approaches to human-computer interaction
  • How design and human-computer interaction is informed by neurophysiological tools
  • User task analysis and modeling
  • Analysis, design, development, evaluation, and use of information systems
  • Guidelines and standards for interface design
  • Web-based user interface design and evaluation for:
    • B2B, B2C, C2C E-Commerce
    • Group collaboration
    • Negotiation and auctions
  • Design and evaluation issues for mobile devices and m-Commerce
  • Interface issues in the design and development of other new interaction technologies
  • Information system usability engineering
  • The impact of interfaces on attitude, perception, behavior, productivity , and performance (including their measurement with neurophysiological tools)
  • Implications and consequences of technological change on individuals, groups, society, and socio-technical units
  • Design issues related to the elderly, the young, and special needs populations
  • Issues related to teaching HCI courses
  • Other human factors issues related to HCI
  • Interface design for group and other collaborative environments
  • User Developer experiences with particular interfaces, design environments, or devices
  • Evaluation of HIC devices, design approaches and usability in specific domains, including health care, law, engineering, governmental, business, and so on
