"It's about the information, stupid!", Why We Need a Separate Field of Human-Information Interaction
The past few years have seen increasing discussion of the need for - even the inevitability of - a field of human-information interaction (HII). The "I" in HII implies a focus on information and not computing technology. The panel is structured to encourage an exploration of both pros and cons in favor of a separate field of HII. Panelists provide a diversity of perspectives from several different disciplines and research traditions including cognitive modeling and the study of human cognition, information science, information architecture, personal information management, ethnography and anthropology.
