Core competencies

The Center for Advanced Studies and Research in Information and Communication Technologies &
Society (ICT&S) is established as an independent interfaculty research and study center within the
University of Salzburg. The central vision is to face the challenges of the interrelationship between
technology and society and deliver interdisciplinary solutions for the fields of business, technology and
society and deliver interdisciplinary solutions for the fields of business, technology, science, and
policy. The Human-Computer Interaction & Usability Unit of the ICT&S Center deals with specific
questions related to design, development, and evaluation of existing and emerging interaction
systems and environments. In particular the HCI & Usability Unit studies and develops enhanced forms
of user experience, studies, develops and applies new interaction paradigms, studies, interdisciplinary
methods and tools for experience centered design, studies different interaction contexts and enhances
them by optimized experiences, and applies user centered methodologies towards innovative and
optimized applications. Staff members with various interdisciplinary backgrounds (e.g. computer
science, psychology, communication science, design, information management or sociology) are
working on the following research streams:

Mobile Interfaces, Emotional Interfaces, Ambient Interfaces, Social Interfaces, Advanced Interaction
Techniques and Contextual Interfaces. On the overall level we deal with User Experience (e.g.
meaning of user experience, specific user experience factors), methods and Tools to capture and
evaluate contextual interaction characteristics as well as designing and prototyping specific user
experiences.

Over the years several national and international research projects and industrial cooperations have
been carried out where user centered design methods have been applied and further developed (e.g.
persuasive interfaces, interaction techniques based on facial expressions) as well as investigating a
framework for understanding the measuring of user experience in different situations and conditions.
We are active in different interaction contexts such as home, assisted living, entertainment, work or
real places. Studies in a wide are carried out in out innovative User Experience and Interaction
Experimentation Lab.
