A Category Theory Approach to HCI

David England
2013 unpublished
In this paper we revisit Category Theory as a modelling tool for Human Computer Interaction. We first review past approaches and limitations to formal methods in HCI.  ...  We then introduce a category theory with a tutorial example, before moving onto a more complex example. We end by discussing the further implications for theories of HCI.  ...  Here we can see the beginnings of a general Category approach to HCI.  ...

Four approaches to user modelling—a qualitative research interview study of HCI professionals' practice

T. Clemmensen
2004 Interacting with computers  
Despite the obvious fallacies in these approaches, typification of users appears unproblematic for the experienced HCI professional, because in practice user types are rich conceptual structures that support  ...  Less traditional approaches to user modelling give other kinds of schematic user typification in terms of the users' roles, users' social events or users' self-concepts.  ...  Acknowledgements For comments and suggestions to the paper and for interesting discussions about HCI Professionals' practice, we thank Jesper Holck, Kerstin Rose, Niels Bjørn-Andersen, the HCI group at  ...

A Review of Mobile HCI Research Methods [chapter]

Jesper Kjeldskov, Connor Graham
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The purpose is to provide a snapshot of current practice for studying mobile HCI to identify shortcomings in the way research is conducted and to propose opportunities for future approaches. 102 publications  ...  Also, gaps in the distribution of research approaches and purposes were identified; action research, case studies, field studies and basic research being applied very infrequently.  ...  In this paper we replicate elements from this study by applying its overall approach to the field of mobile HCI.  ...

Do you know "saudade"? The importance of a cultural and language-based emotion approach for HCI [article]

Diogo Cortiz, Paulo Boggio
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Today most technologies and interfaces are designed to be global.  ...  CULTURAL AND LANGUAGE-BASED EMOTION APPROACH FOR HCI Emotions theories Today we can divide the studies of emotions into a few approaches.  ...  Even local startups plan to have a broader market reach if their local technologies. It is a one size ts all approach.  ...

In search of theoretical foundations for UX research and practice

Marianna Obrist, Virpi Roto, Arnold Vermeeren, Kaisa Väänänen-Vainio-Mattila, Effie Lai-Chong Law, Kari Kuutti
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 ACM annual conference extended abstracts on Human Factors in Computing Systems Extended Abstracts - CHI EA '12  
The data set was filtered and categorized in several iterations, resulting in 56 items distributed over 7 major theory categories and related to 9 relevant disciplines.  ...  Our results help to explore the multidisciplinary nature of UX and to build a more solid foundation for UX research and practice.  ...  Within the CHI community, where user experience (UX) is seen as being subsumed by the discipline of HCI, only a limited number of studies exist focusing on theoretical approaches of UX design and evaluation  ...

Designing and Engineering for Emergence: A Challenge for HCI Practice and Research

Steven Alter
2010 AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction

The Role of Design Artifacts in Design Theory Construction

John Zimmerman, Jodi Forlizzi
2008 Artifact  
Many designers working in the HCI research community have expressed an increased interest in research through design, a research approach that employs methods and processes from design practice.  ...  The discipline of design is facing such a time, as scholars, researchers, and practitioners are devoting attention to creating categories for design practice and design research, articulating methods and  ...  THE FUTURE OF DESIGN THEORY IN HCI In order to make design theory useful within the field of HCI, the community needs to understand theory in way that is useful.  ...

Human-Computer Interaction through Sociological Lens

Liliia V. Zemnukhova
2013 International Journal of Social Science and Humanity  
Interaction is the central category of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research area. The main purpose of HCI is to make interaction with computer systems usable.  ...  As a result, human-computer interaction becomes a new possible object of sociology, though sociology itself is not quite ready to take it.  ...  However, interaction as a central category of the HCI is not the only notion or issue of this research field.  ...

Curiosity, Creativity, and Surprise as Analytic Tools: Grounded Theory Method [chapter]

Michael Muller
2014 Ways of Knowing in HCI  
Grounded theory method (GTM) is increasingly used in HCI and CSCW research (Fig. 1 ).  ...  GTM adds to these lay human capabilities a rigorous, scientifi c set of ways of inquiring, ways of thinking, and ways of knowing that can add power and explanatory strength to HCI and CSCW research.  ...  If we were guided by a hypothesistesting approach, we might try to force a community of practice into the "team" category.  ...

Interaction criticism and aesthetics

Jeffrey Bardzell
2009 Proceedings of the 27th international conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI 09  
In concludes with a proposed mapping of aesthetics and critical theory into interaction design, both as a practice and as a discipline.  ...  However, the use of aesthetics and critical theory in HCI remains both marginal and uneven in quality.  ...  The category of the "user" in HCI is both an empirical phenomenon waiting to be studied and a speculative construct.  ...
