Topics from this paper

Sketching as a support mechanism for the design and development of shape-changing interfaces
An approach to inform the direction of shape-change research is developed, which uses simple, accessible tools and techniques to connect researcher and user, and how sketching can bring these groups together to inform and elucidate research in this area.
Implications for Adoption
The motivations for, and practicalities of, incorporating "implications for adoption" into HCI research practice are explored and methods for addressing this need are discussed, specifically design fiction.
Digital technologies and environmental change: examining the influence of social practices and public policies
This thesis responds directly to calls for increased analysis and discussion of the social practices and public policies that influence the environmental footprint of digital technologies, and suggests ways that environmental public policy could influence and be influenced by HCI research.

    Aarhus Conference on Critical Alternatives
  • 2015
This paper explores formative cognitive science influences on HCI, through the impact of early work on the design of input devices, and discusses a core idea that it is argued has animated much HCI research since: the notion of scientific design spaces.
Fallacies of Agreement: A Critical Review of Consensus Assessment Methods for Gesture Elicitation
HAL is a multi-disciplinary open access archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific research documents, whether they are published or not. The documents may come from teaching and
What's the Situation with Situated Visualization? A Survey and Perspectives on Situatedness
This survey shows that research on situated visualization has focused on technology-centric approaches that foreground a spatial understanding of situatedness, and outlines future directions, including considering technology, material and aesthetics, leveraging the perspectives for design, and methods for stronger engagement with target audiences.
A bibliometric study of human-computer interaction research activity in the Nordic-Baltic Eight countries
It is shown that the HCI research activity gaps across the Nordic-Baltic countries should be narrowed by increasing the activity in countries with low research outputs, and first-time authors could receive guidance through collaborations with experienced authors in the same institution or other labs around the world.
Are You Open? A Content Analysis of Transparency and Openness Guidelines in HCI Journals
It is indicated that journals in the sample currently do not set or specify clear openness and transparency standards, and potential reasons, the aptness of natural science-based guidelines for HCI, and next steps for the HCI community in furthering openness and Transparency are discussed.
Consequences, Schmonsequences! Considering the Future as Part of Publication and Peer Review in Computing Research
The aim is to draw on scholarship around creative-yet-grounded speculation about technology futures and to consider how these might be applied to publication and peer review.
Counterfactual Thinking: What Theories Do in Design
ABSTRACT This essay addresses a foundational topic in applied sciences with interest in design: how do theories inform design? Previous work has attributed theory-use to abduction and deduction.


CHI 1994-2013: mapping two decades of intellectual progress through co-word analysis
This study quantifies and describes the thematic evolution of the field based on a total of 3152 CHI articles and their associated 16035 keywords published between 1994 and 2013 and identifies the evolution of major themes in the discipline.
Co-word analysis of the trends in stem cells field based on subject heading weighting
Hierarchical cluster analysis is used to cluster the subject headings and the strategic diagram is formed to analyze the evolutionary trends in the stem cell field.
Scientometric analysis of the CHI proceedings
A ranking of countries and organizations based on the h index, an indicator that tries to balance the quantity and quality of scientific output based on a bibliometric analysis, is presented.
Co-word analysis as a tool for describing the network of interactions between basic and technological research: The case of polymer chemsitry
The co-word analysis techniques developed in this paper should help to build a bridge between research in scientometrics and work underway to better understand the economics of innovation.
The dynamics of research in the psychology of work from 1973 to 1987: From the study of companies to the study of professions
We use a co-word analysis of the key words of 6055 articles that appeared in the psychology of work from 1973 to 1987 and were listed in the PASCAL database to bring out changes in the scientific
