    Point or click?: Evaluating two input modalities for mobile games2007In: Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Internet and Web Applications and Services, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research in computer games have focused on user experience from the perspectives of game content, graphics, interactivity and underling game story while missing to address the effect of a certain input modality on the user experience. In this paper we report from two user studies that focus on players' experience and performance in relation to the use of two different input modalities for the same game and whether it changes the flow and gameplay in any way. The overall research was according to this whether a game can be more fun to play with a certain input modality? The paper presents the results from these studies and draws conclusions based on these data in relation to computer games and user experiences in the context of mobile game playing.

    Abstract [en]

    For many in the field of HCI, location and space are synonymous; yet, as we move from the mobile era to the ubiquitous era, computing becomes entangled with notions of space. This workshop critically examines the role of space in human-computer interfaces. The objective is to bring together diverse perspectives of space, drawing from architecture, philosophy, art, geography, design, dance, spatial-cognition, mathematics, computing, and still other domains, towards foregrounding space in theoretical discussions and explorations within the CHI community. Expected outcomes are the reporting of fresh insights into the impact and role of space in the interaction process.

    ScrollPad: Tangible Scrolling with Mobile Devices2004In: Proceedings of the 37th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS'04), 2004, 6- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we approach the problem of managing large visual sets of data on small mobile devices. While current approaches either focuses on 1) scrolling on the mobile device, or 2) reducing the content in various ways (e.g. zooming, automatic redesign depending on the screen size of a mobile device, etc) our approach is to scroll with the mobile device itself (i.e. object in the world scrolling) over a large virtual area. We present the background for this project and working prototype called Scrollpad developed to illustrate this concept. We then present an initial user study conducted and relate this project to similar efforts made before concluding the paper.

    Lost in translation: Investigating the ambiguity of availability cues in an online media space2007In: Behaviour & Information Technology: An international journal on the human aspects of computingArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we present a longitudinal study of an online media space addressing the question of how availability is managed in an interaction-intensive organization. We relied on three different data collection techniques and analysed our data in relation to three different work modes. During this study we participated in an online media space, for approximately six months making spot checks and observing the population from which ten subjects were selected for interviews. Our results show how techniques and strategies for availability management are developed and continuously adapted to a shared common ground. Further, our results show how having the communication channel open, and regulating availability on a social level instead of on a solely technical level, has the advantage of better coping with the ever-changing dynamics in group works. Finally, we show that there exists an ambiguity of availability cues in online media spaces that is smoothly handled by individuals.

    Understanding search behavior in professional social networks2011In: Human Technology, ISSN 1795-6889, E-ISSN 1795-6889, ISSN 1795-6889, Vol. 7, no 3, 194-215 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We present an empirical study of social interaction in a professional social network. As the point of departure, we take previous research into distributed work and information foraging theory to explore interaction search behavior of individuals active in professional networks, examining how social factors govern their behavior. For this exploration, we focused on the process through which relevant collaborators are chosen to execute shared work tasks in the area of logistics, and identified six characteristics of the explored processes. We recognized the “survival of the social” as a cornerstone for efficient and long-term professional networks and outlined design implications arising from our findings. More specifically, we found that participants are oriented to solutions that involve active social agents and social relations, rather than optimizing based on task characteristics, efficiency, and cost. These behaviors motivate the need for the concept of social interaction foraging.

    Mobile e-Services and Open Data in e-Government Processes: concept and Design2015In: Mobile Web and Intelligent Information Systems: 12th International Conference, MobiWis 2015, Rome, Italy, August 24-26, 2015, Proceedings / [ed] Muhammad Younas, Irfan Awan, Massimo Mecella, Springer, 2015, Vol. 9228, 149-160 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The traditional service life cycle starts with the formulation of required needs and ends with the adoption and ownership of the service. In an e-government context, this takes the form of citizens consuming services provided by the public sector bodies. We examine how a combination of mobile e-services and open data can extend and allow possible citizen-driven continuation of the service life cycle. The chosen method is a concept-driven approach, manifesting our concept in a digital prototype, which allows citizens to generate and acquire open data, as well as develop and publish their own e-services.

    Mobile e-Services and Open Data in e-Government Processes: Transforming Citizen Involvement2015In: Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Information Integration and Web-based Applications & Services (iiWAS2015) / [ed] Maria Indrawan-Santiago, Matthias Steinbauer, Ismail Khalil, Gabriele Anderst-Kotsis, New York: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2015, 58-67 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mobile computing is one of the most important paradigms to influence and enhance modern e-services, mainly due to its anytime and anywhere availability adding value to the delivered service. In a traditional e-government context, the service life cycle takes the form of citizens consuming services provided by public sector bodies. In this paper, we use a novel concept combining mobile e-services and open data to extend and allow possible citizen-driven continuation of the service life cycle. The concept is evaluated throughout the design process, and also becomes the subject of a focus group. Our most important conclusions are that the concept design extends the service life cycle within the public sector context, and also creates new entrances for citizens to participate in generating and acquiring open data, thus transforming citizens' involvement. The result is increased co-operation, as well as increased adoption and availability of data and e-services, enhancing citizen participation.

    Application Mobility: Concept and Design2015In: Recent Advances in Ambient Intelligence and Context-Aware Computing / [ed] Kevin Curran, USA: IGI Global, 2015, 169-186 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mobility has become an omnipresent part of our modern IT society. Alongside the general taxonomy of mobile users, terminals, sessions, and services, there are also more specialized forms of mobility. Context-Awareness Supported Application Mobility (CASAM) or “Application Mobility” is one such form that is explored in this chapter. CASAM builds on the idea of using context to move an application between different devices during its execution in order to provide relevant information and/or services. The authors use a concept-driven approach to advance mobile systems research, integrating it with a more traditional user-centric method and a case study, further exploring the concept of CASAM. To empirically situate our design work they conducted an empirical study of a home care service group serving the Swedish municipality of Skellefteå, followed by an exercise in matching the properties of the CASAM concept in relation to problems within current workflow.

The result is a proposal for an IT artifact manifesting the CASAM concept, attending to all the identified problems while at the same time validating the concept.

    On the making of things: taking a risk with 3D printing2015In: PIN-C 2015 reframing design: proceedings of the 4th participatory innovation conference 2015 / [ed] Rianne Valkenburg, Coen Dekkers and Janneke Sluijs, Hauge: The Hauge University of applied sciences , 2015, Vol. 1, 485-499 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we explore how the tradition of craft can be re-visited to assist a move beyond 3D-printed objects. While CAD, 3D modeling and 3D printing do offer precise tools for the repetitive manufacturing of small objects we argue that the closeness to "the materials at hand" is lost at the current moment. Via a practical design case we illustrate how we have experimented with ways of re-introducing craftsmanship both as an opportunity and as a necessity for moving forward. We combine this explorative/maker approach with an analytical approach, and analyze the process using the viewpoint of David Pye's (1968) notions of "workmanship of risk" and "workmanship of certainty".

    Redesigning Work: From Sedentariness to Activeness2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    At the core of ‘Healthcare Information Systems’ is an idea of designing systems that are functional, practical and contained integrated solutions. As humans have always spent the majority of their hours in seated positions in work environments and workplaces, it is important to investigate these environments before applying a design for promoting daily movement and physical activity. In this paper we focus on the history of workplace design. We argue that the strategies for reaching this sedentary living style have been carried out by different means during the past 70 years of technological development. Further on, we illustrate this current paradigm through the presentation of an empirical study that shows how people compensate for a passive mode of working. In this paper, we contribute to the current development in our field by offering this alternative design paradigm and we suggest concept-driven design research as a possible way forward if we are to design information systems for active worklife.

    Sociala medier - ett nät av härskartekniker?2015In: Human IT, ISSN 1402-1501, E-ISSN 1402-151X, Vol. 13, no 1, 1-34 p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    På senare tid har fenomenet näthat debatterats flitigt som en företeelse i sociala medier. Det handlar om explicita former av mobbning, utpekanden och svartmålande av individer och grupper. Näthat kan ses som en extrem form av försök att skapa maktasymmetrier mellan människor, det kan även ses som en förlängning av härskartekniker. I vår forskning har vi dock riktat vår uppmärksamhet mot ett närbesläktat, men betydligt mer subtilt sätt att utöva sociala makt- och positioneringsspel på nätet, exempelvis genom osynliggörande, förlöjligande, undanhållande av information, dubbel bestraffning, påförande av skuld och skam, våld och hot om våld samt objektifiering. Mer specifikt fokuserar vi vilka möjligheter att utöva makt som möjliggörs när dessa klassiska härskartekniker flyttar ut i sociala medier. De centrala frågorna i denna artikel är: vilka uttryck tar sig de klassiska härskarteknikerna i sociala medier, och vilka motstrategier växer fram i strävan att förhålla sig till dessa? Vår forskning bygger på en kvalitativ intervjustudie av människors användning och erfarenheter av Facebook, Instagram, Twitter och bloggar. Mot bakgrund av studien visar vi hur sociala mediers handlingsutrymmen möjliggör olika former av härskartekniker, och vi diskuterar även vilken betydelse internets och sociala mediers potentiella spridnings- och nätverkseffekter har i detta sammanhang. Vidare identifierar vi 11 motstrategier som har formats i syfte att bemöta och stävja utövande av härskartekniker i sociala medier. Avslutningsvis diskuterar vi vad medieträning för sociala medier skulle kunna innebära i ljuset av de sociala makt- och positioneringsspel som just nu utspelar sig på Facebook, Twitter, Instagram och i bloggosfären.

    Sociala medier och härskartekniker2014 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    En snabb kommentar, en gest eller bara en lite för lång konstpaus kan fullständigt omdefiniera det sociala rummet. Mellan två personer skapas en maktasymmetri där den ena parten använder tekniker för att ställa sig ovanför, vid sidan om, eller i avstånd från den andre. Det sker subtilt men ändå så uppenbart. Det handlar om härskartekniker.

    Sociala medier är inget undantag. Även på Twitter, Facebook, Instagram och i exempelvis bloggosfären, pågår liknande sociala makt- och positioneringsspel. I den här boken möter du nätprofilerna Johanna Frändén och Clara Lidström som båda har skapat sig en stark röst och position i de sociala medierna. Genom deras erfarenheter lär vi oss om strategier som har vuxit fram för att förhålla sig till det sociala spel som pågår på nätet.

    Bokens teoretiska utgångspunkt är de handlingsutrymmen och härskartekniker som de sociala medierna möjliggör. Författarna Annakarin Nyberg och Mikael Wiberg presenterar tio härskartekniker som idag utövas på nätet – och tio motstrategier för att utveckla ett bättre förhållningssätt till såväl subtila som tydliga härskartekniker i sociala medier.

    Sociala medier och härskartekniker vänder sig till dig som vill förstå vår digitala samtid. Boken syftar till att medvetandegöra det komplexa i det till synes ytliga i vår vardag på nätet.

    Concept-driven interaction design research2010In: Human-Computer Interaction, ISSN 0737-0024, E-ISSN 1532-7051, Vol. 25, no 2, 95-118 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we explore a concept-driven approach to interaction design research with a specific focus on theoretical advancements. We introduce this approach as a complementary approach to more traditional, and well-known, user-centered interaction design approaches. A concept-driven approach aims at manifesting theoretical concepts in concrete designs. A good concept design is both conceptually and historically grounded, bearing signs of the intended theoretical considerations. In the area of human–computer interaction and interaction design research, this approach has been quite popular but not necessarily explicitly recognized and developed as a proper research methodology. In this article, we demonstrate how a concept-driven approach can coexist, and be integrated with, common user-centered approaches to interaction design through the development of a model that makes explicit the existing cycle of prototyping, theory development, and user studies. We also present a set of basic principles that could constitute a foundation for concept driven interaction research, and we have considered and described the methodological implications given these principles. For the field of interaction design research we find this as an important point of departure for taking the next step toward the construction and verification of theoretical constructs that can help inform and guide future design research projects on novel interaction technologies.

    Abstract [en]

    Selfies, commonly understood as those shallow pictures taken with no preparation, no thought behind them, no careful editing, no thoughtful posing, and no other purpose than showing off one?s look. Thepractice of taking photos of oneself has been around for quite a while. One can recall the days when Polaroid pictures were taken and handed out to friends and family. Nowadays, technology lets us share these self portraits online via social media, making them viewable by anyone around the globe.The phenomenon became so big that a new word was invented for it. Selfies are of course enabled by a combination of interactive materials, including social media, such as Instagram, and the camera phone. Beyond that, however, and in staying true to the socio-material approach, one sees thepractice of taking selfies as a phenomenon consisting of not only interactive materials but also social processes.

    Configuring social agents2001In: HCI International: 8th International Conference on Human Computer Interaction, 2001, 450-454 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social agents have recently been more frequently used in the user interface. However, so far not many studies have been conducted on what impact such interfaces have on users behavior. This paper discusses this and reports on empirical findings, which focus on impact of social agents on user behavior. We talk of social agents as interfaces that act autonomously but are related to the actions of the user. However, to really figure out what social impact these interfaces have on humans, we discuss what characteristics of social agents that should be possible to configure, in order to establish, maintain and develop a fruitful relation with the user. In order to do so, we needed to explore the impact for real users. The exploration of the impact of social agents such as BonzyBuddy the Parrot and Bob, the Paper-clip guy, was done empirically through observations and interviews with users. Based on empirical data collected in the study, a user-agent interaction model was constructed. The model illustrates three dimensions for configuration of social interfaces. Given the interaction model the two agents investigate are discussed followed by a discussion on what implications these observations has for design of social agents. Having identified the need for self-examining and selfadapting social agents and related problems we then conclude the paper and points at some future work.

    Interaction per se: understanding “the ambience of interaction” as manifested and situated in everyday & ubiquitous IT-use2010In: International Journal of Ambient Computing and Intelligence, ISSN 1941-6237, Vol. 2, no 2, 1-26 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Interaction is a core concept in the fields of Ubiquitous computing, Ambient systems design, and generally in the fields of HCI and Interaction Design. Despite this, a lack of knowledge about the fundamental character of interaction still exists. Researchers have explored interaction from the viewpoints of user-centered design and design of graphical user interfaces, where interaction stands for the link between technology and humans or denotes the use aspect. A framework is proposed for exploring interaction as a design space in itself between a human and the technology. It is proposed that this framework for interaction as a design space for Interaction Design, in which the very form of the in-between, the interaction, be explicitly targeted. It is an opportunity to go beyond user and usability studies to seek answers to fundamental questions concerning the form and character of interaction as implemented in today’s interactive systems. Moreover, this framework is an opportunity to expand and explain a new design space for Interaction Design. The proposed framework, anchored in two exemplifying cases, illustrates the character and the form of interaction as it situates itself in online, ubiquitous and everyday IT use.

    Abstract [en]

    Mobile HCI is changing. From being about, for example, UI design for small devices, interaction via limited input modalities, and design for small screens, these important aspects of mobile HCI are now heavily interwoven in complex arrangements of computational devices, platforms and services. With a point of departure taken in these processes of current development, this paper sets out to describe and envision a research agenda for mobile HCI carefully crafted out in relation to three specific and recent developments in this field. More specifically, these strands of developments include the formation of new interaction landscapes, the long tail of interaction, and digital materialities. This paper presents the background of each followed by examples illustrating how these three manifest themselves in practice. With a point of departure taken in these three cornerstones a research agenda is presented followed by a discussion on the implications of this agenda for mobile HCI research.

    Methodology for materiality: interaction design research through a material lens2014In: Personal and Ubiquitous Computing, ISSN 1617-4909, Vol. 18, no 3, 625-636 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Increasingly, human–computer interaction (HCI) is acknowledging the material dimensions of our subject. In doing so, a wide repertoire of methods is currently being explored for conducting interaction design research through a material lens. These methods range from material studies and studies in material cultures to methods borrowed from craft, designerly approaches to interaction design, sketching in hardware approaches, and so on. While we acknowledge these important attempts to approach the material dimensions of interaction design, it should also be noted that there is a lack of more systematic studies of methods that are, can be, or have been applied within HCI and interaction design to specifically explore interaction design through a material lens. So, there is a need for a methodology that acts as a guideline to material-centered interaction design research. In this paper, we address this need. More specifically, this paper contributes to this current state by presenting a methodology for methodological explorations in material-centered interaction design research. The development of this proposed methodology takes a point of departure in the methods available and applied so far. With grounding in design theory, this paper organizes these methods into a four-dimensional structure to guide deliberate choices of methods in different phases of interaction design research projects—that is, it serves as a framework for research design. The organizing structure for the proposed methodology follows the simple dialectic tradition in design to work back and forth between details and wholeness, materials and textures. In this paper, we describe the four dimensions of our framework and how these can be useful to guide research design aimed at advancing our understanding of the material dimensions of HCI. We illustrate how the proposed structure can be practically useful—both in advancing our studies of interaction design through a material lens and show how it brings us back to the roots of our profession—that is, back to a focus on the materials, the fundamental components of any computational composition.
