Research in human–computer interaction (HCI) has identified meaning as an important, yet poorly understood concept in interaction design contexts. Central to this development is the increasing emphasis on designing products and technologies that promote leisure, personal fulfillment, and well-being. As spaces of profound historical significance and...
Conference Paper
Research in HCI and design position empathy as a key factor of a successful user-centred approach, supported by the emergence of empathic design methods. However, there is a dearth of empathy measurement tools to investigate the actual ability of design methods to trigger empathy among designers and beyond within the organization. For service stake...

Online services pervasively employ manipulative designs (i.e., dark patterns) to influence users to purchase goods and subscriptions, spend more time on-site, or mindlessly accept the harvesting of their personal data. To protect users from the lure of such designs, we asked: are users aware of the presence of dark patterns? If so, are they able to...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
When communication about security to end users is ineffective, people frequently misinterpret the protection offered by a system. The discrepancy between the security users perceive a system to have and the actual system state can lead to potentially risky behaviors. It is thus crucial to understand how security perceptions are shaped by interface...

Introduction - Alors que l’évaluation de l’expérience utilisateur (UX) est au cœur des préoccupations dans le domaine des interactions homme–machine, aucun outil d’évaluation auto-administré valide de l’UX n’existe actuellement en langue française. Le questionnaire AttrakDiff 2 (Hassenzahl, Burmester, & Koller, 2003) est un outil d’évaluation de l’...
Conference Paper
In the future autonomous vehicles will drive on our roads. It is unlikely that we will immediately move from manual to fully autonomous vehicles, instead the mix will change over time and include a large number of semi-autonomous vehicles. As a result human drivers will need to take over in specific situations (e.g., when sensors fail) and there wi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We study whether the padlock and the signal strength bars, two visual cues shown in network managers, convey their intended messages. Since users often choose insecure networks when they should not, finding the answer is not obvious; in our study we clarify whether the problem lies in uninformative and ambiguous cues or in the user who, despite und...

This chapter explores a novel methodology used to develop gamified mobility applications for a heavily congested European city. The methodology consists of three elements: a metaphorical traffic game, a complex and comprehensive mobility logging approach and two focus groups. The daily commute is explained as part of a real life traffic game that c...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Many methods and tools have been proposed to assess the User Experience (UX) of interactive systems. However, while researchers have empirically studied the relevance and validity of several UX evaluation methods, few studies only have explored expert-based evaluation methods for the assessment of UX. If experts are able to assess something as comp...
Conference Paper
This paper focuses on the user-centered design of a computer-based assessment (CBA) instrument for knowledge measurement. We describe relevant design steps in general and illustrate them via the design of our usability improved CBA concept map instrument (ISO 9241-11, 1998; ISO 9241-210, 2010). We discuss design versus evaluation methods from a hum...
Conference Paper
We present a socio-technical analysis of security of Hotspot and Hotspot 2.0. The analysis focuses is user-centric, and aim at understanding which user action can compromise security in presence of a attacker. We identify research questions about possible factors that may affect user's security decisions, and propose experiments to answer them.
Conference Paper
We propose an operational framework for a social, technical and contextual analysis of security. The framework provides guidelines about how to model a system as a layered set of interacting elements, and proposes two methodologies to analyse technical and social vulnerabilities. We show how to apply the framework in a use case scenario.
Conference Paper

RÉSUMÉ Depuis une dizaine d'années, le concept d'expérience utilisateur (UX) se répand dans le domaine des Interactions Homme-Machine (IHM). Centré sur l'utilisateur et son expérience subjective vécue de l'interaction avec un système interactif, l'UX s'intéresse, entre autres, aux aspects émotionnels, hédoniques ou encore esthétiques composant l'in...
Conference Paper
Authenticating web identities with TLS certificates is a typical problem whose security depends on both technical and human aspects, and that needs, to be fully grasped, a socio-technical analysis. We performed such an analysis, and in this paper we comment on the tools and methodology we found appropriate. We first analysed the interaction ceremon...
