The way in which we learn about, use and design interfaces between people and the computer systems they are faced with is an area which has, in recent years, been the subject of much research. This research field is usually known as Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and, without doubt, has had (and continues to have) an extraordinary effect on the shaping of applied ergonomics concerns in the 1980s.

This Special Issue, which appears in this and a subsequent issue, covers a range of contemporary topics in HCI, and aims to present a cross-section of on-going research. Whilst it is impossible here to provide a full view of the area, it is possible to select a number of current concerns for our attention; the Special Issue “The user's side of the computer interface” has done just that.
