    Addressing the rising prevalence of interactive systems in our daily lives, this book focuses on the essential aspects of usability, user experience (UX) and inclusive design. It:

    ·         Discusses both theoretical and practical aspects, approaches and methods for the design process and the collaboration between HCI Design and Software Engineering.

    ·         Expands to practical topics such as web and mobile design, aesthetics, information visualization, information architecture and navigation design, along with relevant guidelines and standards.

    ·         Tackles the issue of persuasive interfaces that has arisen as a crucial concern in the contemporary digitalized landscape.

    ·         Emphasizes the importance of making computing systems inclusive and user-friendly for a diverse range of users, including children, older adults and persons with disabilities.

    ·         Highlights the significance of usability, underscoring its key role in enhancing the overall user experience of interactive products.

    This book has been written for individuals interested in human-computer interaction research and applications.
