Abstract

This book contains the proceedings of the 13th International Human Choice and Computers (HCC13) Conference, held at Poznan University of Technology, Poznan, Poland, during September 19–21, 2018.

The conference was held by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Technical Committee 9 (TC9): Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Society, as part of the 2018 IFIP World Computer Congress (WCC). The conference chairs, David Kreps, (Chair of Working Group, WG 9.5, and Chair of TC9), Charles Ess (Guest Program Chair), Kai Kimppa (Finland Representative, Vice Chair of SIG 9.2.2 and Vice Chair TC9), and Louise Leenen (Chair WG 9.10), chose the theme for this year’s conference: “This Changes Everything.” Tracks were advertised in the call for papers addressing a range of concerns across the working groups of TC9, and the accepted papers coalesced into six groups: History of Com- puting; ICT4D and Improvements of ICTs; ICTs and Sustainability; Gender; Ethical and Legal Considerations; and Philosophy.

The papers selected for this book are based on both academic research and the professional experience of information systems practitioners working in the field. It is the continued intention of TC9 that academics, practitioners, governments, and inter- national organizations alike will benefit from the contributions of these proceedings.

The volume editors have, in addition, contributed an introductory paper “This Changes Everything,” which is divided into two principle parts: the first looking at the nature and outcome of the call for this conference, and the second, subdivided into the six sections, introducing each individual paper in the volume.
