Special Issue on HCI and Social Media in Critical Systems

Human computer interaction in safety-critical systems is an interdisciplinary challenge. Application fields include control systems, critical infrastructures, vehicle and traffic management, production technology, medical technology, crisis management and civil protection. Nowadays in many areas mobile and ubiquitous computing as well as social media and collaborative technologies play an important role. The significance of this topic is now also represented in the special interest group “Human-Machine-Interaction in Safety-Critical Systems” ( of the German Informatics Society (GI). The specific challenges require the discussion and development of new methods and approaches in order to design information systems. These are going to be addressed in this special issue of the “Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management”. Generally the focus is rather on the effects of technology on real world practices than on computer technology itself presenting a clear contribution for safety-critical systems.
