Human-Centered Computing (HCC)


The Human-Centered Computing (HCC) group develops novel interaction techniques as well as new tools to develop these techniques, and new methods to control the design process of interactive systems. The goal is to develop situated interfaces, i.e. interfaces that are adapted (or adaptable) to their contexts of use by taking advantage of the complementary aspects of humans and computers. In the long run, the project seeks to create a new generation of interactive environments as an alternative to the current generation of desktop environments.
