Emotions and Affect in Human Factors and Human-Computer Interaction is a complete guide for conducting affect-related research and design projects in H/F and HCI domains. Introducing necessary concepts, methods, approaches, and applications, the book highlights how critical emotions and affect are to everyday life and interaction with cognitive artifacts.

The text covers the basis of neural mechanisms of affective phenomena, as well as representative approaches to affective computing, Kansei engineering, hedonomics, pleasurable product design, and emotional design.

The methodologies section includes affect induction techniques, measurement techniques, detection and recognition techniques, and regulation models and strategies. The application chapters discuss various H/F and HCI domains, including learning and training, product and web design, human-robot interaction, mobile applications, driving and aviation, game design, and health and sports.

Key Features

  • Defines jargon and technical expressions at the outset
  • Explains theories and mechanisms with conceptual diagrams
  • Discusses the ethics of conducting affect research
  • Includes application case studies in specific subdomains


H/F and HCI researchers, students, professionals within psychology, engineering, and design

About the Editor

Myounghoon Jeon

Dr. Myounghoon “Philart” Jeon is an Associate Professor in the Department of Cognitive and Learning Sciences and the Department of Computer Science at Michigan Tech and founding director of the Mind Music Machine Lab (https://sites.google.com/site/mindmusicmachinelab/). He also serves as a Director of the Center for Human-Centered Computing at the Institute of Computing and Cybersystems at Michigan Tech.

His research focuses on HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) and HRI (Human-Robot Interaction), including Auditory Displays, Affective Computing, Assistive Technologies, Automotive User Interfaces, and Aesthetic Computing. His research has yielded more than 150 publications across top peer reviewed journals and conference proceedings. His research is currently supported by NIH (National Institutes of Health), DOT (Department of Transportation), FRA (Federal Railroad Association), Hyundai Motors Company, Equos Research Co., LTD., and MTTI (Michigan Tech Transportation Institute), etc. At Tech, he teaches Affective Design and Computing, Human Factors, Human Factors II: Multimodal Design and Measures, Human-Robot Interaction, Human-Centered Design among others. He serves as an Associate Editor of MIT Press Journal, Presence: Teleoperators and Virtual Environments and Affective Design Technical Committee of International Ergonomics Association (IEA). He has recently guest-edited journal special issues in "subliminal perception" (Presence) and "social cars and connected vehicles" (Pervasive and Mobile Computing), "arts and aesthetics in VR (Presence), and "sonic information design" (Ergonomics in Design). He actively works in international conferences - chairing programs and sessions, organizing workshops, and serving as program committee in AutomotiveUI, ICAD, HFES, CHI, MobileHCI, UbiComp, PersuasiveTech, etc.

Dr. Jeon completed his MS and PhD degrees at Georgia Tech in Engineering Psychology and Human-Computer Interaction. His dissertation focused on the design of adaptive emotion regulation interfaces for drivers using auditory displays. He also earned his MS degree in Cognitive Sciences with a focus on Cognitive Engineering at Yonsei University in Korea and studied Film Scoring at the same University. Before returning to academia, Dr. Jeon worked for LG Electronics and Daum Communications as an HCI researcher, UX designer, and sound designer. Besides, he has led many industry projects in collaborations with General Electric, Samsung Electronics, Panasonic Automotive, Toyota, and Hyndai-Kia Motors Company, etc. These works have been recognized by awards, such as the IF Communication Design Award and the Korean Ergonomic Design Award, and best papers and posters in the flagship international conferences. He's leading a worship team in his church and teaching her daughter how to compose music and play various instruments. He lives in UP (Upper Peninsula), Michigan with his wife and 9 year old daughter (EunYool) whose name means "fragrant melody". * Philart means "love art".
