The Place of Interactive Computing in Tomorrow's Computer Science

William Newman
This paper discusses the continued sidelining of interactive computing as an area of computer research, thirty years after its emergence as an important topic. It suggests that whereas "mainstream" computer science has many of the hallmarks of an engineering discipline, interactive computing does not, and this may hinder the integration of the two. It discusses how the mainstream might be extended to include interactive computing, by focusing on specific application domains. Some examples are presented, and the paper concludes with the some suggested research topics that might form the basis of an interactive computing discipline within mainstream computer science.
