• augmenting or taking into account individual human abilities and limitations,
• social and cultural awareness, and
• adaptability across individuals and specific situations.
• integrate input from different types of sensors and communicate through a combination of media as output,
• act according to the social and cultural context in which they are deployed, and
• be useful to diverse individuals in their daily life.
• HCC is "conceived as a theme that is important for all computer-related research, not as a field that overlaps or is a subdiscipline of computer science"; and
• HCC acknowledges that "computing connotes both concrete technologies (that facilitate various tasks) and a major social and economic force."
• new human-centered methodologies for the design of models and algorithms and the development of diverse HCC systems;
• focused research on the integration of multiple sensors, media, and human sciences that have people as the central point;
• new interdisciplinary academic and industrial programs, initiatives, and meeting opportunities;
• discussions on the impact of computing technology that include the social, economic, and cultural contexts in which such technology is or might be deployed;
• research data that reflects human-centered approaches—for example, rich data collected from real multisensorial and culturally diverse social situations;
• common computing resources—for example, software tools and platforms;
• evaluation metrics for theories, design processes, implementations, and systems from a human-centered perspective; and
• methodologies for privacy protection and the consideration of ethical and cultural issues.
