The ELIPSE research group is active in the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) through an interdisciplinary approach, involving various relevant disciplines (e.g., HCI, computer science, assistive technology, usability, engineering, cognitive science but also neurosciences, and psychology).
Our research focuses on the design, implementation and evaluation of advanced interaction techniques for spatial and tangible interaction, multi-display environments, assistive technologies, eyes-free interaction, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, etc. Our group considers advanced interaction techniques both as a research topic and as a research tool. In the first case, our research contributions include novel interaction techniques, analytical frameworks, HCI design methods and usability recommendations. In the second case, we develop and use interactive devices in specific contexts to extend our knowledge on different aspects of users cognition, such as spatial perception.
