THCI is a high-quality peer-reviewed international scholarly journal on Human-Computer Interaction. It is published by AIS (http://home.aisnet.org/) and sponsored by AIS SIGHCI (http://sighci.org/). As an AIS journal, THCI is oriented to the Information Systems community, emphasizing applications in business, managerial, organizational, and cultural contexts. However, it is open to all related communities that share intellectual interests in HCI phenomena and issues. The editorial objective is to enhance and communicate knowledge about the interplay among humans, information, technologies, and tasks in order to guide the development and use of human-centered Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and services for individuals, groups, organizations, and communities.
