Abstract

Human-computer interaction (HCI) draws on a wide range of academic disciplines and leverages many different theoretical foundations. Identifying the right research projects to pursue in this domain, executing the research, and finding an appropriate outlet for such work is a challenge. This paper presents ways to determine appropriate projects, discuss the role of theory in the formation of a project, analyze issues underlying success in research design, and explore the different models for publishing “relevant” HCI research. Our focus is on laboratory experiments used for theory testing.
