    Proceedings of HCI 2011
    The 25th BCS Conference on Human Computer Interaction

    Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, 4 - 8 July 2011

    Human computer interaction is a key area of computing. The BCS Conference on Human Computer Interaction is the leading conference in the field in the UK. It covers the design, evaluation and application of techniques and approaches for interacting with devices and services. HCI is now on its 25th conference and for this anniversary, papers reflect on our theme of Health, Wealth and Happiness.

    Technology is posed to play a growing part in our health and well-being into older age; wealth manifests itself in many ways, many of which we do not always recognise - relationships, richness of life experience, creativity and innovation, knowledge and qualities of character. Lastly is there a relationship between happiness and technology, and will more gadgets increase our well-being? How can technology measure well-being and how can technology be used to motivate behaviour change towards a sustainable, healthy future?
