Everyday human-technology interaction is often problematic because the performance capacities that underlie the technologies change frequently, and new ones are introduced. Emerging technologies and services are compelling the interaction community to constantly develop new innovative approaches to solve interaction problems. As a result, interaction design is now in a crucial period in terms of capitalizing on new design possibilities to solve contemporary problems in an efficient manner.

This comprehensive volume follows the success of Future Interaction Design I and complements it by looking at emerging approaches which are likely to contribute to the discipline in the near future. The theme underpinning the book is that it is the human character rather than the technology that should determine the nature of interaction, and that the term ‘interaction design’ covers a range of issues relevant to enabling quality design. A team of international authors discuss a number of new topics, such as psychological design processes, gerotechnology, modeling, e-learning and subconscious experiences.

This novel and broad-ranging volume will be of considerable value to researchers and practitioners seeking innovative perspectives for designing and ensuring effective interaction between humans and technology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"The book consists of an introduction and ten papers, plus a consolidated index of terms and authors. … the purpose of this book is to present new thinking in HCI, and in this, it succeeds. I would lend the book to graduate students interested in HCI, and I believe that research libraries should add a copy to their collections." (Richard Botting, ACM Computing Reviews, May, 2009)
