Human Computer Interaction Research in Web Design and Evaluation

A book edited by:
Dr. Panayiotis Zaphiris, Centre for HCI Design,
City University, London, UK

Dr. Sri Kurniawan, School of Informatics,
University of Manchester, Manchester, UK

Overall Objectives of the Book
The objective of this book is to look at the topic of Web design in a
new direction. The majority of existing books on this topic have been
focusing primarily on the technical dimensions (programming languages,
hardware and software needs) of Web design. Few books touch on the user
aspect of Web design and interaction. In addition, this book will try
to provide an academic/research direction to Web usability.

Because humans are an important participant in Web interaction and a
significant factor contributing to successful Web design is user
involvement throughout the design and evaluation processes, there is a
need for a unified view of the user-related topics that surround Web

This book will point out that beyond the technical aspects of Web
design, we need to systematically take into account human interaction
and activity, and the completely renewed social and cultural
environments that Web environments and interfaces are calling for and
technologies are now capable of delivering. The general goal is to
discuss the basis of a broad framework for the development and
management of Web environments, enriched with contributions from domains
as diverse as Web design, information systems, psychology, sociology,
artificial intelligence, e-learning and many others.

The Target Audience
University educators and educators in general; university
administrators; researchers; lecturers of HCI and user-centred design;
Web system managers; instructional designers; general audience with an
interest in HCI and Web design. This book will be structured in such a
way so that it can act as a core textbook in HCI and Web development

Recommended Topics
Recommended topics include but are not limited to the following:

* Introduction: Introduction to HCI and User-Centred Design and their
application to Web design

* Humans as Web Users: human abilities and limitations (cognitive,
perceptual, motor) and their effect on efficient use of the Web;
cognitive psychology and its application to Web design

* Analysis: Query-based techniques (interviews, focus groups, surveys)
and Web design; Task Analysis, users, context and requirements and their
application to Web design; Personas

* Design: Conceptual and detailed Web design; Prototyping
(paper/electronic) as used in Web design; Screen design; Information
architecture; Design of user-friendly Web navigation schemes and
features; Web Accessibility and Web design for people with special
needs; Participatory design and other innovative design approaches in
Web design; Dialogue design

* Evaluation: Usability evaluation; Expert (heuristic) evaluation; Web
accessibility evaluation

* Special Topics: Interaction styles and their applicability to the Web;
Information visualization on the Web; Computer mediated communication
and the Web; The future of HCI and the Web

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before March
31, 2005, up to 2 page proposal clearly explaining the mission and
concerns of the proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be
notified by April 30, 2005 and be sent chapter organizational
guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by July 31,
2005. All submitted chapters will be reviewed through a blind reviewing
process. The book is scheduled to be published by Idea Group Inc.,
www.idea-group.com, publisher of the Idea Group Publishing, Information
Science Publishing, IRM Press, CyberTech Publishing, and Idea Group
Reference Imprints.
