computing for the human pace

The word "computer" is coming to mean more than just desktop machines, and the machines themselves are being used to perform ever more diverse tasks. Whatever the tasks and whatever the machines, however, there is a human side to computing. The HCI Group at Waikato is interested in this human part of computing in all its forms.
