HCI Lab, Faculty of Science, University of Split

The Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory (HCI Lab) is part of the Computer Science Department at the Faculty of Science, University of Split. We acknowledge the importance of good interface design and necessity to develop Information Society Technology (IST) products and services, namely interactive products that are easy, effective and enjoyable to use from the users’ perspective. Here the term interactive products is used generally to refer to all classes of technologies, interactive systems, environments, tools, applications, services and devices. We are interested in designing, developing, and evaluating user interfaces and interactions to help users solve their challenging problems in everyday life. We believe that understanding people’s needs and abilities is vital to developing successful future interactive products.

The HCI Lab has a particular focus on Adaptive and personalized interfaces and interaction, User modelling, Context-awareness, Creativity, Usability and User Experience, Affective computing and interaction, Multimodal interaction and interfaces, Technology acceptance, Ubiquitous learning, Technology enhanced learning, Design for users with disabilities, Usable interactive technologies for active and healthy ageing.
