Welcome to the webpage of the “human-computer interaction” (HCI) research group at the University of Bremen. We develop ubiquitous computing technologies that demonstrably enhance users’ lives by improving their interactions with their environment. We have already made some strides towards this research goal by developing novel methods and interfaces that draw on the literature of three fields: HCI, ubiquitous computing and geographic information science (GIScience).

Please have a look at our research and publication page to find more about our recent work. Students can find information about ongoing courses and thesis topics here. We are part of the Bremen Spatial Cognition Center (BSCC), an interdisciplinary research institute at the University of Bremen, Germany as well as the TZI (Technologie-Zentrum Informatik und Informationstechnik) and the high-profile area Minds, Media, Machines (MMM), an interdisciplinary network of researchers at University Bremen and collaborations with other internal and external institutions in Germany.

The lab is managed by Johannes Schöning. Please contact him if you have further questions.
