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 and communication technology by humans, organisations and society. In this proceedings, a range of HCI related topics are covered, from the human and social sciences, computer science, technology, education and design. In addition, innovative ways of using computer systems that exploit the emerging new technologies are presented, including multimedia and multimodal systems, wearable computers and virtual reality. People and Computers XIII represents a comprehensive guide to current research in HCI which will be essential reading for all researchers, designers and manufacturers who need to keep abreast of developments in HCI.
