This book is concerned with the importance of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Usability, user participants, and Sustainability in the Information Communication Technology (ICT) industry throughout the world. ICT has become a crucial instrument for communication, entertainment, commerce and research and this increased usage is presenting new environmental and sustainability issues as we try and meet the ever growing needs of both businesses and individuals. Sustainability must become central to the design of new technologies to make a concerted effort to tackle the environmental concerns we face now and for the future. Development frameworks, tools and models are used and explored and the New Participative Methodology for Sustainable Design (NPMSD) is introduced as a way of identifying key factors needed in developing more sustainable systems including new smart technology and portable devices. It is hoped additional research will be carried out in the future to assess these sustainable design steps using larger, more diverse countries with developed and developing economies to further refine such methods. Sustainable Design will be an invaluable resource for students and researchers, designers and business managers who are interested in the human-centred, environmental concerns of sustainable technologies

This completely revised edition, of the Handbook of Human-Computer Interaction, of which 80% of the content is new, reflects the developments in the field since the publication of the first edition in 1988. The handbook is concerned with principles for design of the Human-Computer Interface, and has both academic and practical purposes. It is intended to summarize the research and provide recommendations for how the information can be used by designers of computer systems. The volume may also be used as a reference for teaching and research. Professionals who are involved in design of HCI will find this volume indispensable, including: computer scientists, cognitive scientists, experimental psychologists, human factors professionals, interface designers, systems engineers, managers and executives working with systems development. Much of the information in the handbook may also be generalized to apply to areas outside the traditional field of HCI.

Human–Computer Interaction (HCI) is the current challenging issue of research and information technology. The areas of recent research like Usability Engineering, Cognitive Architectures, Spoken Dialogue System and Recommender Systems are covered in the book. Besides, the new dimensions of HCI, such as Ontological Engineering, Ambient Intelligence and Ubiquitous Computing are also introduced. Design methodologies of Spoken Dialogue System and the corresponding mathematic models are also presented, whereas the main emphasis is given on the simple presentation and making the cognition process easier for the learners. The book is an invaluable tool for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of computer science and engineering, and information technology. In addition, it is of immense value for the postgraduate students of computer application. Besides, researchers will be benefitted from Chapter 3 (Modelling of Understanding Process) and Chapter 5 (Recommender Systems) as these are based on the review of cognitive architectures and ontological tools. Software engineers will find the book useful especially for the contents of Chapter 2 (Usability Engineering). Technology innovators will appreciate Chapter 7 (Ambient Intelligence—The New Dimension of Human–Computer Interaction), which discusses advanced technologies, such as Ambient Intelligence, Middleware Technologies and Ubiquitous Computing. Information specialists and web designers will have an interesting experience with Chapter 6 (Advanced Visualisation Methods) that deals with advanced visualisation techniques.

Designing Interaction, first published in 1991, presents a broadbased and fundamental re-examination of human-computer interaction as a practical and scientific endeavor. The chapters in this well-integrated, tightly focused book are by psychologists and computer scientists in industry and academia, who examine the relationship between contemporary psychology and human-computer interaction. HCI seeks to produce user interfaces that facilitate and enrich human motivation, action and experience; but to do so deliberately it must also incorporate means of understanding user interfaces in human terms - the province of psychology. Conversely, the design and use of computing equipment provides psychologists with a diverse and challenging empirical field in which to assess their theories and methodologies.
