Activity Theory (AT) has been a recognised framework for enhancing design practices in HCI and
related disciplines for a couple of decades. In most cases, AT has been deployed as an analytical framework for
conceptualising user and contextual perspectives during systems design. However, the popularity of this
framework has not yet resulted in operational methods and techniques that can easily and readily be applied in
HCI design. The purpose of this workshop is to examine current methods and techniques based on AT so as to
establish the feasibility of using this framework in HCI for practical design purposes. Given this remit, the term
‘HCI design’ is used in a much broader sense so as to incorporate the whole range of activities involved in the
systems development process.
