The Human-Computer Interaction program at Uppsala University teaches both the theory and practice required to design well-functioning and innovative information technology interfaces, artefacts and services.
Our research concerns analysis and design of computerized work environments. A goal is to ensure usability (satisfaction, efficiency and effectiveness) and reduce complexity for computer users. Most of our research is performed within governmental authorities, organizations and industrial settings, where our role is to guide the development of usable systems through user-centred design activities. A significant part of our research concerns complex computer systems intended for professional users in their everyday work. Here we are also studying organizational aspects and work environment problems. Current research domains are:
We have extensive experience in international research and within larger EC-projects.
