The term interaction is field-defining, yet surprisingly confused. I will talk about different
concepts of interaction in human-computer interaction, and how these concepts are associated with
different scopes, different notions of goodness, and ways of construing the causal relationships
between the human and the computer. Moreover, I will talk about empirical findings concerning
interaction and what they show about the open questions about interaction science.

Copenhagen. His core research interests are human-computer interaction, usability research, and
information visualization; detours include eye tracking, cultural usability, and reality-based
interfaces. Kasper serves on the editorial board of ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction.
He has published at CHI, UIST, ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction, and Human-Computer
