Research on human-centered computing has rapidly expanded from user interface design and evaluation to the creation of entire user experiences and even novel life-styles and human values. Therefore, the designing, building, and evaluation of computational technologies should be related to people’s capabilities, limitations, and environments, and should reflect how these technologies affect society. Part of the Institute of Computing and Cybersystems, the Center for Human,-Centered Computing (HCC) leverages broad expertise in people and technology to help lead this timely effort. Specifically, we integrate art, people, design, technology, and experiences, and conduct novel experiments and research on multiple areas in human-centered computing. HCC prepares Michigan Tech students to become future creators with balanced viewpoints by educating their computing side, their human side, and their interactions.

Peruse a selection of publications from the Center for Human-Centered Computing below. Visit the ICC homepage for more information about the Institute and its Centers.
