Human-Centered Design

The design of IS artefacts requires a profound understanding of the entangled relationships between artefacts, their users, and the relevant tasks, before, during and after artefact development. This track is concerned with creating multidisciplinary and multi-theoretical knowledge through rigorous research, including building and validating theories of user behaviour, exploring and testing design methods and principles, and contributing useful models and tools.
