Human Work Interaction Design for e-Government and Public Information Systems

A Full day workshop at INTERACT 2011, Lisbon, Portugal on Sept. 6, 2011.
Organized by IFIP WG 13.6 Human Work Interaction Design

The complex interplay and information exchanges between the models of Government to Government, Government to Business and Government to Citizen pose different kind of challenges while designing the e-government systems. Human work analysis is very critical in public information systems design as the procedures, working styles, organizational contexts are different in various public sector organizations. Interaction design of e-government system and public information systems has to simultaneously address the user experience requirements of diverse users such as people from varied educational and professional backgrounds, senior citizens, physically disabled, illiterate and people with different languages and cultural preferences. The combination of Human Work analysis and Interaction Design in user interface design for e-government systems has to adopt itself to diverse delivery media such as web, desktop, touch screen kiosks and mobile devices.

We would like to invite position papers / case study papers on the theme of the workshop following significant thematic areas such as – 

• Human work analysis and interaction design case studies in e-government and public information systems
• The influence of socio-economical, political and cultural context on the design of public information systems
• Social networks and collaborative user interfaces for policy crowd-sourcing
• Government-centric versus citizen-centric design approaches
• User interface design for diverse delivery media for e-government services such as web, desktop, touch screen kiosk and mobile devices
• Designing for diverse users, Every-citizen interface design, Mass personalization
• Democratic design for e-government
• HCI challenges in bridging the digital divide through e-government
• Usability evaluation methods for e-government
• User experience design for e-government
