Center for Human-Computer Interaction

The Center for Human-Computer Interaction is an interdisciplinary research group at the University of Salzburg. Established in 2005 as research unit at the former ICT&S Center, currently approx. 40 researchers study the interplay between humans and computers in order to enable desired interactions and explore desirable futures. The Center is directed by Professor Manfred Tscheligi who is a widely recognized expert in the field.


We are committed to contemporary HCI thinking and address current research questions, while also valuing established methodology and formerly prevalent domains. In our research activities (e.g., a seven-year basic research project on „Contextual Interfaces“, focusing on contextual qualities and interaction in factories and cars), we acknowledge that interactions are situated, i.e., they are heavily dependent on the concrete and specific characteristics of the context in which they take place. Our research is devoted to rich (ethnomethodologically informed) studies, for which we continuously refine and develop methods in order to satisfy the situated, contextual nature of interactions. Related interaction designs are, on one hand, informed by those studies, aiming for user experiences that reflect the situated qualities of specific (and sometimes challenging) contexts. On the other hand, we consider design methods and processes as legitimate modes of inquiry, providing means for critical reflection and exploration. Additionally, we reflect on the according methodological challenges and opportunities that come along with
