The last decade has witnessed the development of academic research and professional work in the field of Human-computer interaction (HCI) and User Experience (UX) design in Indonesia. The pervasive adoption of mobile technology, the Internet and social technologies in the Indonesian society has highlighted the personal interaction and usability problems in the everyday life of Indonesians.
This work-in-progress is intended to serve as a reference for the growing HCI and UX community in Indonesia. This paper represents a first attempt at describing the history of HCI and UX in Indonesia, the research and practice that contribute to its development in the present state, and a reflection of its future. A reflective discussion then concludes what defines the HCI and UX community in Indonesia, including what lies ahead in its future.
