A Look Inside
Main Description
This book presents the proceedings of HCI'89, the major European conference on human-computer interaction, held at the University of Nottingham, 5-8 September 1989. The papers of People and Computers V reflect the conference themes. Theoretical basis and methodical practice of HCI Integration of HCI with other disciplines Industrial relevance Contributions are included from leading researchers and designers in both industry and academia. The book represents a comprehensive guide to current research in HCI which will be essential reading for all researchers, designers and manufacturers whose work impinges on this rapidly moving field. It will be of particular interest to researchers in computer science, ergonomics, electrical engineering and psychology, and to others concerned with improving communications between people and computers.
