Advances in Longitudinal HCI Research
Theoretical perspectives, methods, and case studies
Longitudinal studies have been traditionally seen as too cumbersome and labor-intensive to be of much use in research on
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). However, recent trends in market, legislation, and the research questions we address,
have highlighted the importance of studying prolonged use, while technology itself has made longitudinal research more accessible
to researchers across different application domains.
This book is aimed as an educational resource for graduate students and researchers in HCI and will be published in the Springer
Human-Computer Interaction Series: http://www.springer.com/series/6033
We invite HCI researchers and practitioners to contribute to the following suggested (but not limited) topics:
- the theoretical underpinnings of longitudinal HCI research: when
a longitudinal study is appropriate, what research questions can be addressed and what challenges are entailed in different longitudinal research designs,
- advances and challenges in methods of longitudinal data collection and analysis: how can we maintain participant adherence and data reliability in longitudinal studies, how to conduct efficient longitudinal studies through the large-scale deployment of technology through app stores and otherwise, how to use particular methods of data collection and analysis in longitudinal settings (e.g., Experience Sampling, Hierarchical Linear Models, Contextual Bandits)
- reviews of the state of the art of different research topics in longitudinal HCI research
- case studies of longitudinal research, across the full spectrum of HCI: e.g., usability and user experience, social robotics and virtual agents, information visualization, interaction design & children, social computing, personal informatics etc.
