Media Computing Group: Our Research Landscape

In HCI@Aachen: Experiments in the Future of Media and Mobility (PDF, 2.6 MB) we present the Media Computing Group at RWTH Aachen University and its goal to explore the future of collaborative, ubiquitous interaction with audiovisual media. It explains how this initial research vision has led to work on the levels of HCI theory, algorithms, toolkits, testbeds, and design patterns.

It also introduces some of our external collaborations, in particular the Excellence Initiative, Germany’s most fundamental change in government research funding to date, which supports RWTH and our group. The article appeared in the CHI 2008 Extended Abstracts.
