In 2001 AFIHM and the British HCI crew mixed their annual meetings, bringing jointly the simplest gains of every organisation's separate convention sequence, and delivering a different chance for the French- and English-speaking HCI groups to interact.
This quantity includes the whole papers awarded at IHM-HCI 2001, the fifteenth annual convention of the British HCI crew, a consultant staff of the British computing device Society and the 14th annual convention of the organization Francophone d'interaction Homme-Machine, an self sustaining organization for any French-speaking one who is attracted to Human-Computer Interaction.
Human-Computer interplay is a self-discipline well-suited to this sort of multi-linguistic and multi-cultural convention because it brings jointly researchers and practitioners from various disciplines with very alternative ways of considering and dealing. As a group we're already used to tackling the demanding situations of operating throughout such limitations, facing the issues and making the most of the richness of the ensuing insights: interplay with out frontiers.
The papers awarded during this quantity hide all of the major components of HCI examine, but additionally specialize in contemplating the demanding situations of latest functions addressing the next themes:
- Enriching HCI by way of crossing nationwide, linguistic and cultural boundaries;
- attaining larger co-operation among disciplines to carry usable, worthwhile and interesting layout solutions;
- profiting from event received in different program areas;
- Transcending interplay constraints by utilizing novel technologies;
- assisting cellular users.

Example text

In light of this, let us come back to Vicente's analysis: "It is well known that workers frequently informally tailor the design of their device and work practices to better meet domain demands. In some cases, workers make permanent changes that could have been, but were not, originally introduced by designers ... in contrast the temporary changes ... would have been far more difficult, if not impossible, for designers to anticipate completely and reliably. These tailoring activities are responding to local circumstances ...

The controls retained constitute the artefact part of the old instrument and afford schemes pertinent to driving with a manual gearbox. An analysis of the design project in terms of the instrument, as carried out above, could have been done beforehand and would have predicted the appearance of system breakdowns during use. e. 6The notion of the psychological instrument is developed by Rabardel (1995) and Beguin & Rabardel (2000). 7 The concept of affordance was initially developed by Gibson (1966) to descri be the reciprocal relation between perception of the environment and action.

Thus, it is not a passing phenomenon that disappears after a brief apprenticeship. e. in terms of a personal view. The drivers in question are experienced and developed their skills by driving vehicles with manual gearshifts. They developed 'utilisation schemes' specific to this type of gearbox. It is even more natural that they continue applying these utilisation schemes given that the designers kept the same control devices (clutch pedal and gearshift) in the new semi-automatic gearbox. Table 1 allows us to compare the two situations during a change of gears.
