The risk is to make interaction unmanageable, in that complexity can appear suddenly, catching people by surprise.

Abstract

This volume contains the proceedings of the ninth edition of the biannual conference organised by the Italian chapter of ACM SIGCHI (Association for Computer Machinery - Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction). The Italian ACM SIGCHI Chapter, called SIGCHI Italy, has been officially chartered on April 24, 1996. Its aim is to promote an increased knowledge and greater interest in the science, technology, design, development, and application of methods/tools/techniques for HCI. This year's conference, held on September 13--16 in Alghero (Italy), is hosted by the Department of Architecture, Design and Planning, University of Sassari. The theme Conference is Facing Complexity with a focus on how to face the complexity of interaction with new objects and technological systems. Following the theme of Donald A. Norman's latest book, the paradigm of simplicity will be questioned, as it often makes problems look banal and not transparent to the point of obscuring the complexity of human-computer systems. The risk is to make interaction unmanageable, in that complexity can appear suddenly, catching people by surprise.
