Researchers in the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) field study, design and encapsulate the rich interaction between different kinds of users, information technology systems, and contexts of use in personal and organizational levels with implications to shaping society at large. HCI addresses different levels of analysis in human-technology interaction, utilizes different theoretical perspectives, practices, and paradigms from other disciplines, cooperates with other academic disciplines to study human-technology interaction, crossing boundaries and contributing to other disciplines, and has the design of human-technology interaction in its core. As research and practice field, HCI is very suitable for and oriented towards inter- and multi-disciplinarity, but transdisciplinarity in HCI is not yet fully explored. This paper outlines and reflects upon the concepts of transdisciplinarity, HCI, and transdisciplinarity in HCI.
