2 New Pubs-HCI & IM Research Needs Report and Grand Challenges
Report-U.S. NCO/ITRD Program

The National Coordination Office for Information Technology Research
and Development (NCO/ITRD) has recently published a new report, Human
Computer Interaction and Information Management (HCI & IM) Research
Needs. This document provides an overview of 10 U.S. Federal Agency
(DARPA, EPA, DOE/SC, NOAA, NIH, NSF, NASA, NIST, GSA, AHRQ)
presentations on HCI & IM research needs as presented at a government
meeting in October 2001. Recommendations fall within four broad areas:

Information Creation, Organization, Access, and Use
Managing Information as an asset
Human-Computer Interaction and Interaction Devices
Evaluation Methods and Metrics

The document provides a primer to aid in explaining why these problems
are difficult. The primer can serve to clarify the issues behind
research in these areas. Additional information includes agency points
of contact.

A second publication entitled, Grand Challenges: Science, Engineering,
and Societal Advances Requiring Networking and Information Technology
Research and Development, November 2003, has recently been released.
This document uses an illustrative set of Grand Challenge problems
that require advances in IT research for solution. Included are
several HCI & IM related topics that are of interest to this
community.

Please share this information.

Both documents can be accessed on the NCO/ITRD WEB site:

They are under What's new.
