Human-Computer Interaction is a multidisciplinary field focused on human aspects of the development of computer technology. As computer-based technology becomes increasingly pervasive - not just in developed countries, but worldwide - the need to take a human-centered approach in the design and development of this technology becomes ever more important. For roughly 30 years now, researchers and practitioners in computational and behavioral sciences have worked to identify theory and practice that influences the direction of these technologies, and this diverse work makes up the field of human-computer interaction. Broadly speaking it includes the study of what technology might be able to do for people and how people might interact with the technology.
In this series we present work which advances the science and technology of developing systems which are both effective and satisfying for people in a wide variety of contexts. The human-computer interaction series will focus on theoretical perspectives (such as formal approaches drawn from a variety of behavioral sciences), practical approaches (such as the techniques for effectively integrating user needs in system development), and social issues (such as the determinants of utility, usability and acceptability).
Awareness systems can be broadly defined as those systems that help people construct and maintain awareness of each others' activities, context or status, even if the participants are not co-located. Originally intended for supporting people involved in the same activities at different locations, such systems are now used to support social interactions between any connected individuals and to support socialrelationships over sustained periods of time.
Providing an overview of the current state-of-the-art this book provides a theoretical foundation for the design and development of Awareness Systems. It offers a reflection on the field, tracking research progress from past visions to current trends and future challenges, while presenting a representative collection of design concepts in the area and helping to systematize evaluation practices. It will be welcomed by all those working in the area of Awareness Systems.
