Human-Centered Information Systems


The department of Human-Centered Information Systems is led by 
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Prilla.

AT HCIS, we examine the work, learning and behavior of people in order to support them with appropriate IT tools. The focus is on human factors that influence the way people act and develop as well as their needs for support. Our work not only includes research on the design and use of computer technology (Human-computer-interaction) and the support of collaborative work in groups and teams (computer supported cooperative work and collaborative learning). Our work aims at designing current and future socio-technical systems.

Our work takes place across different application areas and domains. We have developed focal points in which we are currently active:

  • Human-Machine-Interaction
  • Computer Supported Cooperative Work
  • (Cooperative) Augmented Reality
  • Artificial Intelligence and their impact on work and learning
  • Digitalization in healthcare
