Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is almost always dependent on the concrete characteristics of the context the interaction happens in. Contextual interaction means situated human-computer interaction – its quality is dependent on a multitude of factors.

Laboratory

The Christian Doppler Laboratory (CDL) Contextual Interfaces examines contextual interaction from qualitativeconstructional, and methodological viewpoints. Apart from basic research activities focusing on methods and tools for contextual research, the laboratory explores the contexts “car” and “factory” from these three perspectives.

Partners

The laboratory is hosted by the Center for Human-Computer Interaction, Department of Computer Sciences, University of Salzburg. The financial support by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Economy, Family and Youth and the National Foundation for Research, Technology and Development is gratefully acknowledged. The industrial partner for the context car is AUDIO MOBIL Elektronik GmbH located in Ranshofen. Infineon Technologies Austria AG and KEBA AG are the industrial partner for the context factory.
