Riad Saba. University of Balamand, Tripoli, Lebanon


Abstract
Human Centered Technologies designed for developed countries often assume certain conditions that are not readily available in the developing world. This fact is illustrated by exposing some of the problems faced in the course of conducting PhD research carried with the University of Nottingham in the UK while being based in the University of Balamand in the north of the Middle Eastern country of Lebanon.
