Next steps for sustainable HCI
Magazine article, 2014

Experts share their views on how steps are being taken to develop sustainable human-computer interfaces (SHCI). The SIGCHI HCI ∧ Sustainability Community (HCI ∧ S) has organized a workshop at CHI 2014 to address the issues and disputes of researchers and professionals from the field. The workshop also aims at finding concrete ways to support work that builds on existing sustainability knowledge within and beyond HCI and finding ways for HCI to contribute to achieving sustainability. Participants of the workshop have mean by the term. Participants agreed that SHCI research should articulate clear study- or design-specific sustainability goals and metrics on a project-by-project basis, without being restricted to HCI criteria such as usability, efficiency, or user satisfaction. SHCI researchers also need to evaluate their work with sustainability criteria derived from relevant natural and social scientific research and the communities within which they work.
