Human Factors and Ergonomics #35: Human Computer Interaction Handbook: Fundamentals, Evolving Technologies, and Emerging Applications, Third Editionby Julie A., Ph.d. (edt) Jacko
Synopses & Reviews
The third edition of a groundbreaking reference, The Human Computer Interaction Handbook: Fundamentals, Evolving Technologies, and Emerging Applications raises the bar for handbooks in this field. It is the largest, most complete compilation of HCI theories, principles, advances, case studies, and more that exist within a single volume. The book captures the current and emerging sub-disciplines within HCI related to research, development, and practice that continue to advance at an astonishing rate. It features cutting-edge advances to the scientific knowledge base as well as visionary perspectives and developments that fundamentally transform the way in which researchers and practitioners view the discipline.
New and Expanded Topics in the Third Edition:
The chapter authors include experts from academia, industry, and government agencies from across the globe all among the very best and most respected in their fields. The more than 80 tables, 400 figures, nearly 7,000 references, and four-page color insert combine to provide the single most comprehensive depiction of this field. Broad in scope, the book pays equal attention to the human side, the computer side, and the interaction of the two. This balanced, application-focused design coverage makes the book not only an excellent research guide but also an authoritative handbook for the practice of HCI and for education and training in HCI.
This third edition continues to provide the most up-to-date, comprehensive overview of the most important research in the field of human-computer technologies, including insights that are directly applicable throughout the process of developing effective interactive information technologies. It features cutting-edge advances to the scientific knowledge base as well as visionary perspectives and developments that fundamentally transform the way in which researchers and practitioners view the discipline. Copiously illustrated with figure and tables, it contains nine new chapters covering topics such as creativity and cognition, social networking, human-robot interaction, and recommender systems.
The Human-Computer Interaction Handbook: Fundamentals, Evolving Technologies, and Emerging Applications is a comprehensive survey of this fast-paced field that is of interest to all HCI practitioners, educators, consultants, and researchers. This includes computer scientists; industrial, electrical, and computer engineers; cognitive scientists; experimental psychologists; human factors professionals; interface and systems designers; product managers; and executives working with product development.
This new Handbook offers a comprehensive compendium of foundational principles, as well as the most recent advances in conceptualizing, designing, and evaluating computing technologies. It spans a variety of traditional and non-traditional platforms, including desktop and mobile computing, networked and virtual environments, and information appliances. In addition, the volume offers thorough coverage of interaction issues concerning diverse users, including men; women; children; the elderly; and those with cognitive, physical, and perceptual impairments. Another unique feature of this new Handbook is that HCI is presented in the context of special application domains, such as e-commerce, telecommunication, government, health care, educational software, entertainment, games, motor vehicles, and aerospace.
In this volume, an unprecedented number of top experts in the field of HCI share their expertise, experience, and insight regarding research, technological advancements, and specific methodologies in the field of human-computer interaction.
