Prof. Borchers is on research sabbatical during the summer semester from April 1 until Sep 30, 2021. We still offer our DIS2 and CTHCI classes for credit in a self-study format. Dr. Simon Völker teaches our Bachelor proseminar and M3 lab ('Software-Projektpraktikum'). Prof. Jürgen Giesel takes over as head of the CS exam committee during that time. Philipp Wacker steps in as deputy head of the chair.

Corona virus pandemic information: Following university recommendations, we have suspended or moved online all public events (Open Fab Lab Tuesdays, Aachen Maker MeetupCocoaheads), and are working from home. You can reach us via email, phone, and Zoom. Our classes continue to take place online. (Last updated Mar 15, 2021)

Headed by Prof. Dr. Jan Borchers, we work in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Grounded in Computer Science, we develop and study new interaction theories, techniques, and systems in areas like personal digital fabrication and personal design, tangible, mobile, and wearable user interfaces, interactive textiles, multitouch tables and interactive surfaces, augmented reality, interaction with AI, and visual coding environments. Our goal is to make the Brave New World of interactive technologies useful by making it usable. Since starting in October 2003, we have become one of Germany's best-published research groups at CHI, the premier international academic conference in the field.

HCIC Logo We're part of the Computer Science Department and the HCI Center at RWTH Aachen University, Germany's top-ranked University of Technology and one of Germany's Excellence Universities. Our group is an Endowed Chair of the German B-IT Foundation.

FLApp

FLApp, our mobile Future Lab Aachen App for iOS and Android that launched in 2017, takes you on a walking tour through Aachen's inner city. But instead of historical facts, you'll find out about the latest discoveries and inventions made by engineers and scientists at each location, some using Augmented Reality.
