2 New Pubs-HCI & IM Research Needs Report and Grand Challenges
Report-U.S. NCO/ITRD Program

The National Coordination Office for Information Technology Research 
and Development (NCO/ITRD) has recently published a new report, Human 
Computer Interaction and Information Management (HCI & IM) Research 
Needs.  This document provides an overview of 10 U.S. Federal Agency 
(DARPA, EPA, DOE/SC, NOAA, NIH, NSF, NASA, NIST, GSA, AHRQ)  
presentations on HCI & IM research needs as presented at a government 
meeting in October 2001. Recommendations fall within four broad areas:

         Information Creation, Organization, Access, and Use
         Managing Information as an asset
         Human-Computer Interaction and Interaction Devices
       Evaluation Methods and Metrics

The document provides a primer to aid in explaining why these problems 
are difficult. The primer can serve to clarify the issues behind 
research in these areas. Additional information includes agency points 
of contact.

A second publication entitled, Grand Challenges: Science, Engineering, 
and Societal Advances Requiring Networking and Information Technology 
Research and Development, November 2003, has recently been released. 
This document uses an illustrative set of Grand Challenge problems  
that require advances in IT research for solution. Included are 
several HCI & IM related  topics that are of interest to this 
community.

Please share this information.

Both documents can be accessed on the NCO/ITRD WEB site:

They are under What's new.
