This proceeding contains a selection of state of the art refereed papers on current Human-Computer Interaction topics presented at the HCI98 conference. This conference is the annual conference of the British HCI Group, which was held at Sheffield Hallam University in September 1998. HCI98 is the premier European Human-Computer Interaction forum. HCI is concerned with the effective utilisation of computing & communication technology by humans, organisations & society. In this proceedings, a range of HCI related topics are covered, from the human & social sciences, computer science, technology, education & design. In addition, innovative ways of using computer systems that exploit the emerging new technologies are presented, including multimedia & multimodal systems, wearable computers & virtual reality. People & Computers XIII represents a comprehensive guide to current research in HCI which will be essential reading for all researchers, designers & manufacturers who need to keep abreast of developments in HCI.
