The Interactive Systems group at the University of Michigan investigates Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Educational Technology, Multimedia, and Social Computing. HCI is a large and diverse field and the faculty cover many important areas, including strengths in the fundamentals of HCI as well as exciting new technologies and services.

The scientific fundamentals include the domains of human perception and cognition and human factors, social activity, and learning. The applications cover a wide span: user interface design methods, computational sound and music systems, collaboration systems, and educational computing in K-12 settings, with a special emphasis on mobile and ubiquitous computing.
