About this book

Designing Inclusive Interactions responds to the recent changes in the research landscapes in the fields of Human Computer Interaction, Computer Science, and Healthcare as a result of new technology and innovation. Research into accessibility for interface design has always represented an unconventional, multi-disciplinary arena of pragmatic disciplines, such as experimental psychology, engineering design, and rehabilitation practice. It has moved from isolated activities in disparate fields to the more interdisciplinary perspective evident today in areas such as healthcare and inclusive design. As a result of this, there is now a need for the transfer of knowledge and techniques from inclusive design research into the wider community. This book is divided into five areas: • Understanding Users for Inclusive Design • Measuring Inclusion • Inclusive Interaction • Assistive Technology • Inclusion and Healthcare The papers were selected by reference to the peer assessments of an international panel of reviewers from many key disciplines such as computer science, assistive technology, engineering and product design. This book represents a sample of leading national and international research in the fields of inclusive design, universal access, and assistive and rehabilitative technology. We hope that this will encourage inter-disciplinary research leading to better designs, effectively reducing exclusion and difficulty, in the workplace, at home and at leisure.

P. Langdon is Senior Research Associate at the University of Cambridge, UK, and is also External Examiner for the Kings College London and Guy's Hospital Intercollegiate MSc in Assistive Technology. Dr Langdon holds a PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of Sheffield, UK. His research interests include the properties and design of Haptic interfaces; the representation and formulation of statistical data on disability; and the integration of software development and empirical methodology. P. John Clarkson is Professor of Engineering Design and Director of the Cambridge Engineering Design Centre at the University of Cambridge, UK. After receiving a PhD in Engineering (Electrical Machines) from the university, he spent seven years as Manager of the Advanced Process Group for PA Consulting Group's Technology Division. His current research interests are in engineering design, particularly the development of design methodologies to address specific design issues. P. Robinson is Professor of Computer Technology and Deputy Head of Department at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory in the UK. He is also a Fellow, Praelector and Director of Studies in Computer Science at Gonville & Caius College within the university, where he previously obtained his PhD in Computer Science.
