subject has never been greater with the encroachment of information technology into every corner of the home and social spheres. Many more homes in the developed world will have access to information and information
technology in the near future, forming an information society. This book seeks to answer the questions surrounding this move to a `wired society', such as: How is the new technology actually used?
What are the effects on society as a whole? How will it affect human relationships? Who will gain and who will lose? What
technology is there to support everyday life? What services do people really want? How do we study aspects of this phenomenon? £/LIST£ Home Informatics and
Telematics brings together papers from researchers around the world who are looking at this challenging problem domain. There are contributions on the technical computing areas associated with the home, the HCI
of household technology, and theoretical studies on the sociological, psychological and methodological aspects of information technology in everyday life. Also included are studies on the use of computers and the Internet
at home, along with fundamental research on the social nature of human communication. This volume contains selected proceedings from the International Conference on Home Informatics and Telematics (HOIT 2000), `IT at Home:
Virtual Influences on Everyday Life', which was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and held in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom, June 28-30, 2000.
