This thematic area addresses advances in theoretical , methodological , technological and empirical aspects of Human Computer Interaction , treats including design knowledge and methods , interaction frameworks and models , novel interaction techniques , design and development tools , new application domains and user studies. HCI research is a highly multidisciplinary field at the cross -road of computer science , cognitive and social psychology , design , engineering and communication.

• Human Interface and the Management of Information thematic area
This thematic area addresses human interaction with information and knowledge in personal , organizational and social contexts . The overwhelming information abundance in contemporary human life makes it imperative to elaborate new and Effective forms of interaction to manage and present data in a user friendly and supportive way . Important aspects include information design , retrieval , presentation and visualization , support for learning , work , decision, collaboration , as well as service engineering and its application .

• 11th International Conference on Engineering Psychology and Cognitive Ergonomics
The information processing and reasoning abilities of human beings undergo significant stress very Often When Interacting with complex and information rich computational systems, putting at serious risk task performance . Good system design to Promote Appropriate responses in all Situations, but Especially in an emergency , is vital . It is critical That human interactions are designed in Such a way as to maximally exploit human cognitive abilities in Such contexts , while at the same time Avoiding overload , stress and negative emotions .

• 8th International Conference on Universal Access in Human – Computer Interaction
