Human-Computer Interaction Seminar
Dept. of Computer Science
This is a seminar course exploring new forms of human-computer interaction
and software models, abstractions, and languages
for describing them.
Students will read research papers on new interaction techniques,
classic and emerging user interface description languages,
and other related disciplines
and present and discuss them in the seminar.
The course will also connect to our current research
on interfaces that use brain and physiological input to
drive subtle adaptation and the need for new languages and tools for such interfaces.
None; individual articles to read.
The course will begin with an overview of the topic areas.
The bulk of the course will be in the format of a graduate seminar.
Students will read research papers in the areas that underlie
our topic and present and discuss them in the seminar.
We may also have a hands-on project or workshop.
The nature of the project will partly
depend on the backgrounds of the students in the class.
in human-computer interaction, programming languages, cognitive science, linguistics, psychology,
physiological or brain measurement techniques, or
other relevant topic area; or permission of instructor.
