The HCI Research Group

The Human-Centered Interfaces (HCI) Research Group at the Multimedia Campus Kiel is using means and methods of computer science, in order to learn more about the demands that users of interactive systems require. Technological platforms are evolving rapidly through the use of multimedia systems.

System requirements and user demands are diversifying, as the number of users of interactive systems at home and at work is increasing. In order to make computer-based sevices accessible, and satisfy these demands on a long term, the integration of diverse media, such as text, graphics, audio, video, and force feedback is necessary.

This site is featuring more detailed information on our research projects, lectures at both the Multimedia Campus and the University of Kiel as well as on the people behind the HCI Research Group.

The site is implemented using Apache Lenya, an open source web content management system, ensuring to produce valid XHTML and accessible content.
