ICS Team

Head : Celia MARTINIE DE ALMEIDA

The Interactive Critical Systems (ICS) team at IRIT carries out research centered in the field of Human-Computer Interaction with a specific on the engineering of interactive systems. The mains scientific contributions deal with notations, processes and tools for the design, implementation and evaluation of interactive systems thus having a strong bias towards software engineering or more specifically the validation and verification aspects of interactive systems and technologies. ICS team focusses on the integration of multiple and sometimes conflicting properties such as usability, user experience, dependability and safety.

We have a long-term experience in safety critical application domains including:

Beyond these well-known safety critical domains, we address domains where the potential costs of a failure is much higher that development costs. This includes application domains such as large web applications, mass-market systems such as home entertainment and computer games, and more recently health applications such as rehabilitation training platforms.

ICS team is renowned internationally for its research in HCI with the presidency of the IFIP Technical Committee TC13 on Human Computer Interaction. Beyond, some of the ICS team members have a major participation in the ACM SIGCHI leadership with long lasting involvement in its Executive Committee and via the chairing of the steering committee of ACM CHI conference series.

We regularly welcome visiting scientists to collaborate with us. Examples of recent visits are:

  • Andy Cockburn and Carl Gutwin for the design of safe touch interactions in the cockpit
  • Georgia Lallai and Davide Spano for the engineering of task-model based augmented reality for initial training in the cockpit

ICS team manages the master in HCI of the University of Toulouse III created in 2000 and co-accredited with ENAC.
