Overview

CS 2610 Research Topics in Human Computer Interaction (a.k.a. Interface Design and Evaluation) is a broad graduate-level introduction to HCI research. The course covers both seminal work on interactive systems and recent literature of the field. Students will become familiar with important techniques in the design, prototyping, and evaluation of user interfaces; and gain hand-on experience on how to conduct a research project in HCI.
