Advances in Technology and Human Interaction Series (ATHI) Book Series

Call for Edited Book Proposals
Publisher: IGI Global
Series Editors-in-Chief:  Dr. Panayiotis Zaphiris (City University, UK)
Series Operational Editor: Chee Siang Ang (City University, UK)


LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:
Technology has rapidly become more and more pervasive in almost
everybody's lives. There are many daily activities that can be
performed much more comfortably.

For example, much of the power of the Web comes from the fact that it
presents information in a variety of formats and, therefore, is
theoretically accessible by users using a variety of technologies,
devices, and computer applications. The Web also becomes a medium to
disseminate information in more places and times, and to more people
of varying characteristics than any other media can ever achieve.

For that reason, the key objective of this call for book proposals is
to publish books in the area of inclusive design and evaluation of
interactive systems by focusing on the user aspect of Universal design
and interaction, and to present the wide range of advanced technology
that can help disadvantaged users get access to technology.

Inclusive design in this context refers to the approach to the design
of interactive products, technologies and services to be as usable as
possible by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability or
situation.

MISSION OF ATHI:
The Advances in Technology and Human Interaction (ATHI) Book Series
provides a platform for publication of books that address the broad
topics of Human-Computer Interactions (HCI).  The type of books that
the series intends to publish is therefore broad and interdisciplinary
and can include aspects from a wide variety of disciplines. These
disciplines range from more classic HCI ones such as usability and
accessibility evaluation, user modelling, user interface design to
non-classic HCI domains like social computing and online communities,
interaction with computer games, CSCW, ethnographic study of
human-computer interaction and human interaction from the point of
view of sociology or philosophy. We are primarily interested in edited
volumes that provide a forum for multiple views and voices to be
heard.  But we are also happy to consider authored books. It is open
to all research paradigms, be they empirical or conceptual, but
requires that they be accessible and reflected.

COVERAGE OF ATHI:
Among topics to be included (but not limited) are the following:

Access to education and learning
Accessibility guidelines
Accessible network communities
Adaptive and augmented interaction
Alternative I/O techniques
Ambient intelligence
