This Special Issue on Usability Engineering will appear in early 1999 and is meant to build a bridge between the software engineering and the human-computer interaction research communities. Usability engineering is emerging as the commercial and practical discipline that incorporates participatory design, rapid prototyping, and iterative evaluation.
User-centered design and usability evaluations have become common practices in many organizations, but they are still novel and typical development cycles do not accommodate these practices. Wide spread inclusion of usability engineering methods in development would be fostered by empirical studies validating these methods and case studies addressing cost/benefit issues.
We seek papers describing empirical studies, field studies or cases studies of topics such as: Design
Testing and Reviews
