    HCI 2013 - The Internet of Things

    Proceedings of the 27th International BCS Human Computer Interaction Conference (HCI 2013)

    Brunel University, London, UK, 9 - 13 September 2013

    The 27th International BCS Human Computer Interaction Conference was organised by the School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics at Brunel University in conjunction with BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. The conference was held on campus at Brunel University from Monday 9 September to Friday 13 September.

    The conference theme was ‘The Internet of Things’ and the challenges it holds for HCI researchers. As you will hopefully agree when you look through these proceedings, this focus provided us with a set of papers that highlighted the diversity and richness of HCI research in the UK and internationally for such a topical area of debate. Papers were presented on topics such as: design methods, sustainability, HCI and education, social media, mobile design, user characteristics, HCI in the work place and innovative interaction styles.

    On the basis of a discussion in the industrial panel, we have provided a brief introduction to the full papers that were presented at the conference. The aim here is to hopefully make individuals from both an academic and industrial background more inclined to delve in and discover the richness and quality of the research papers that are available in these proceedings.

    As ever, these proceedings are a reflection of the hard work put in by authors who submitted papers (whether they were successful or not), reviewers and the programme committee. So we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all their hard work in making HCI 2013 a very successful and enjoyable conference.

    All the best,

    Steve Love, Kate Hone and Tom McEwan
