Abstract

This report lays out a discussion framework for understanding the role of human-computer interaction (HCI) in public policymaking. We take an international view, discussing potential areas for research and application and their potential for impact. We consider how to more deeply integrate and act to meet user needs during the creation of the digital systems that are essential to modern life.
Little has been written about the intersection of HCI and public policy; existing reports typically focus on one specific policy issue or incident. To date, there has been no global view of the extent of actual areas of existing impact and potential impact. We have begun that analysis and argue here that such a global view is needed. Our aim is to provide a solid foundation for discussion, cooperation and collaborative interaction, and outlining future programs of activity.
This report summarizes the observations and recommendations from a daylong workshop at the CHI 2013 conference in Paris, France. It also incorporates contributions made after the workshop by workshop participants and by individuals who were unable to participate in the workshop but whose work and interests were highly related and relevant.
Although this material has been reviewed and approved for distribution by the Executive Committee of SIGCHI, the views and opinions expressed are not necessarily those of SIGCHI or the organizers of the CHI 2013 and CHI 2014 conferences. Updates, additions, and corrections are welcome because this report will be used as a working document to support the ongoing policy-related activities of SIGCHI and its members.
