Human-Centered Computing Cluster  (HCC)

This program has been archived.

CONTACTS

See program guidelines for contact information.

SYNOPSIS

This cluster, Human-Centered Computing (HCC), encompasses a rich panoply of diverse themes in Computer Science and IT, all of which are united by the common thread that human beings, whether as individuals, teams, organizations or societies, assume participatory and integral roles throughout all stages of IT development and use. 

HCC topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Problem-solving in distributed environments, ranging across Internet-based information systems, grids, sensor-based information networks, and mobile and wearable information appliances.
  • Multimedia and multi-modal interfaces in which combinations of speech, text, graphics, gesture, movement, touch, sound, etc. are used by people and machines to communicate with one another.
  • Intelligent interfaces and user modeling, information visualization, and adaptation of content to accommodate different display capabilities, modalities, bandwidth and latency.
  • Multi-agent systems that control and coordinate actions and solve complex problems in distributed environments in a wide variety of domains, such as disaster response teams, e-commerce, education, and successful aging.
  • Models for effective computer-mediated human-human interaction under a variety of constraints, (e.g., video conferencing, collaboration across high vs. low bandwidth networks, etc.).
  • Definition of semantic structures for multimedia information to support cross-modal input and output.
  • Specific solutions to address the special needs of particular communities.
  • Collaborative systems that enable knowledge-intensive and dynamic interactions for innovation and knowledge generation across organizational boundaries, national borders, and professional fields.
  • Novel methods to support and enhance social interaction, including innovative ideas like social orthotics, affective computing, and experience capture.
  • Studies of how social organizations, such as government agencies or corporations, respond to and shape the introduction of new information technologies, especially with the goal of improving scientific understanding and technical design.

Human-Centered Computing (HCC) subsumes topics covered by these areas previously supported by the IIS Division: Digital Society and Technologies; Human-Computer Interaction; and Universal Access.
