Welcome

Human-Computer Interaction
at the University of Oldenburg / OFFIS

Welcome to the human-computer interaction (HCI) group at the University of Oldenburg and OFFIS. We develop interactive systems and computing technologies to enhance users’ lives. We focus primarily on mobile and ambient user interfaces, where we explore different novel modalities such as visual, auditory and tactile channels in pervasive displays. We strongly embed our research in the fields of personal health and safe transportation, that serve as major application domains.

Please have a look at our research and publications page to find more about our recent work. Students can find information about ongoing courses and thesis topics here.

Our lab is headed by Susanne Boll and Wilko Heuten. Please get in contact if you have questions.

Survey on AI-based aesthetics!

OFFIS - Institute for Information Technology has developed a study in cooperation with CEWE, which focuses on the AI-based aesthetics of collages and their design possibilities.

For this we are looking for study participants!

Are you a curious person who wants to explore more about design, layout and formatting, and how certain aesthetic parameters influence human perception? Then join us and rank, evaluate and examine the aesthetics of collages here:

Saja führt ein Experiment durch, um herauszufinden, wie ein intelligentes Selbstbedienungssystem (ISSS) zur Erledigung von Routine-Verwaltungsvorgängen in der öffentlichen Verwaltung der Stadt Oldenburg gestaltet werden sollte.

Sie hat einen Prototyp eines intelligenten Selbstbedienungssystems (ISSS) für die Kommunalverwaltung von Oldenburg entwickelt und möchte ihn mit Bürgern testen, um deren Präferenzen und Erwartungen an eine solche Technologie im Verwaltungskontext zu verstehen. Daher ist diese Studie an IHRER Meinung darüber interessiert, wie dieses System gestaltet sein sollte.

Im Rahmen dieser Studie werden Sie gebeten, einen Personalausweis unter Verwendung des Prototyps zu erneuern. Die Interaktions- und Kommunikationsmuster, die sich zwischen Ihnen und dem ISSS ergeben, sind für die Verbesserung des Serviceerlebnisses von wesentlicher Bedeutung. Durch Ihre Teilnahme an dieser Studie helfen Sie uns, das System weiter zu verbessern.

Die Studie dauert etwa 60 Minuten und wird in englischer Sprache durchgeführt. Die Aufwandsentschädigung für die Teilnahme liegt zwischen 10 - 25 Euro. Wir werden die Studie im OFFIS-Gebäude (Escherweg 2) durchführen.

Wenn Sie Interesse haben, wählen Sie bitte ein Datum und eine Uhrzeit aus, indem Sie den untenstehenden Link benutzen, oder senden Sie Saja eine E-Mail an "saja.aljuneidi@offis.de". Wir werden uns dann mit Ihnen in Verbindung setzen und Ihnen weitere Einzelheiten mitteilen.

Wir bedanken uns vielmals für Ihr Interesse an dieser Studie!
____________________________

Saja is conducting an experiment on how Intelligent Self-Service System (ISSS) should be designed to carry out routine administrative procedures in the local public administration of Oldenburg.

She developed a prototype of an intelligent self-service system (ISSS) for the local administration of Oldenburg and would like to test it with citizens to understand their preferences and expectations towards such technology in administrative context. Therefore, this study is interested in YOUR opinion on how this system should be designed.

In the course of this study, you will be asked to renew an ID card using the prototype. The interaction and communication patterns that emerge between you and the ISSS are essential to enhance the service experience. By participating in this study, you are helping us to further improve the system.

The study will take about 60 minutes and will be held in English. The reimbursement on participating ranges between 10 – 25 Euro. We will conduct the study in OFFIS building Escherweg 2).

If you are interested, please pick a date and time using the link below, or send Saja an email on “saja.aljuneidi@offis.de”. We will contact you after that with further details.
