Special Issue of ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction
"Human-Computer Interaction in the New Millennium"

Submission Deadline: February 15, 1999

ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (TOCHI) will publish a
special issue titled "HCI in the New Millennium" as the first issue of
2000. John M. Carroll of Virginia Tech's Center for Human-Computer
Interaction will be Guest Editor.

Human-computer interaction (HCI) is the intersection between the social and
cognitive sciences, on the one hand, and computer science and technology,
on the other.  HCI researchers analyze and design specific interaction
technologies (e.g., displays and pointing devices, Internet browsers).
They study and improve the processes of technology development (e.g.,
usability evaluation, design rationale).  They develop and evaluate new
applications (e.g., desktop conferencing, software design environments).
Through the past two decades, HCI has progressively integrated scientific
concerns with the engineering goal of improving the usability of computers,
established a body of technical knowledge and methodology, and contributed
broadly to the development of new computer technologies and applications.

As we contemplate the dawn of a new millennium, we should ask where HCI is
going.  What are the critical technical challenges and opportunities that
will define HCI research and development work beyond the year 2000?  What
are the approaches that will sustain and enhance the vitality and
effectiveness of HCI in this new era?  How will HCI be different from and
similar to what it is today?  These questions can be addressed with respect
to HCI taken broadly, or with respect to narrower technical subdomains
within HCI (for example, groupware, or even more narrowly, real-time
collaborative support).

This special issue is explicitly prospective; we seek visionary analyses.
However, papers must meet the high standards of technical quality for
Transactions articles.  Thus, visions of the future should be clearly and
technically articulated, and soundly argued.  The basis for a visionary
analysis of the future is a careful and creative analysis of the past and
present.

are submitting for the special issue "HCI in the New Millennium."
