Dear CHI-Resources,

   I’m proud to announce that the 6th Edition of Designing the User Interface has been published!!  As some of you know, I’ve been working intensely with UM colleagues (Catherine, Niklas Elmqvist, Nick Diakopoulos) and two others who have been teaching from our book for years (Maxine Cohen and Steve Jacobs) for more than a year to make this significant update.

     For those of you who are coming to CHI 2016 in San Jose, CA, we’ll have a Book Launch next Wednesday, May 11 (see below).  Further below is a brief summary about the book, but you can learn more and, if you will be teaching HCI, order a review copy from the publisher on their website:

    Please join us to celebrate the book and take pride in our HCI discipline as we continue to create transformational experiences for billions of users.  The 6th Edition includes a new section covering 16 Grand Challenges in HCI.

    We can also be proud that between our book and the one led by Jenny Preece, Interaction Design, 4th Edition (, the HCIL is the source of an estimated 90% of the textbooks in our field.

                  Best wishes… Ben

The Sixth Edition of Designing the User Interface provides a comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date introduction to the dynamic field of human-computer interaction (HCI) and user experience (UX) design. This classic book has defined and charted the astonishing evolution of user interfaces for three decades. Students and professionals learn practical principles and guidelines needed to develop high quality interface designs that users can understand, predict, and control. The book covers theoretical foundations and design processes such as expert reviews and usability testing.

By presenting current research and innovations in human-computer interaction, the authors strive to inspire students, guide designers, and provoke researchers to seek solutions that improve the experiences of novice and expert users, while achieving universal usability. The authors also provide balanced presentations on controversial topics such as augmented and virtual reality, voice and natural language interfaces, and information visualization.

Updates include current HCI design methods, new design examples, and totally revamped coverage of social media, search and voice interaction. Major revisions were made to EVERY chapter, changing almost every figure (170 new color figures) and substantially updating the references.
