The Engineering Human-Computer Interaction (EHCI) research group is one of the 24 research teams of the Grenoble Informatics Laboratory (LIG). EHCI is primarily concerned with the software aspects of Human-Computer Interaction. Our mission is to define new concepts, models and software tools for designing, implementing, and evaluating interaction techniques that are effective, usable, and enjoyable. This group has extensive experience in software architecture for interactive systems, multimodal and mixed reality interaction, context-aware distributed and migratory user interfaces.
- Engineering for human-computer interaction: model, method, software architecture
- Innovative interaction technique
- Multimodal and collaborative interaction
- Interaction for small handheld devices and mobility
- Plastic context-aware user interfaces
- Mixed reality interaction
- Exploration of large information spaces (e.g., temporal data, large tables, maps, web)
- Collaborative multimodal command posts (e.g., unmanned aerial vehicles, security aid)
- Smart spaces and objects (e.g., smart home and office, citizen space, museum, ballet, augmented objects)
- Games, serious games
Members of the EHCI team teach at the Grenoble Universities: UJF-Grenoble 1, UPMF-Grenoble 2 and Grenoble INP. In particular, we are responsible for the academic program of the option Ubiquitous and Interactive Systems within the Master of Science in Informatics at Grenoble (MoSIG).
News and Press releases:
- In February 2017, Céline Coutrix was awarded the 2017 CNRS bronze medal. The CNRS Bronze Medal recognizes a researcher's first work, which makes that person a specialist with talent in a particular field. This medal is a way for the CNRS to encourage the researcher to continue work that has met with initial success and already produced fruitful results.
- In October 2016, Nataliya Kos'myna was awarded Boursière L'Oréal-UNESCO Pour Les Femmes et La Science.
- Joëlle Coutaz appears in Ben Shneiderman's Encounters with HCI Pioneers.
- During 2015, Nataliya Kos'myna's work on brain-computer interfaces got a lot of press coverage, from local news paper dauphiné libéré to national broadcast from Artes's FutureMag.
- Septembre 3, 2013, Joëlle Coutaz was awarded IFIP TC13 Pioneer for her pioneering work on multimodal interaction and software architecture modeling for interactive systems.
