Dear all,


This October, we are running a summer school for undergraduate and graduate
research students on the topic of Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI) in the
cultural heritage context. The IUI summer school will take place in Haifa,


Leading international researchers will introduce novel human-computer
interaction and interfaces suitable for the IoT era.


Visits to indoors and outdoors sites will inspire the participants to design
novel interfaces. We expect participants to work in groups where they will
pitch novel ideas for research projects around how novel technologies and
interfaces can be integrated and deployed in a realistic setting for the
benefit of users.


Cultural Heritage was selected as a domain of application given Israel's
rich cultural heritage environment.


The summer school has a triple aim:

-  To map out current state of the art IUI technologies to the cultural
heritage domain, identify design challenges, and develop solutions.

-  To examine the potential of IUI technologies for enhancing the cultural
heritage visit experience.

-  To define initial ideas that may lead in the future to research


The envisioned benefits for participants are:

-   A collaboratively written research roadmap for IUI applied to cultural

-   A research proposal

-   Meeting and networking with renowned international experts

-   Working in an interdisciplinary and culturally diverse team


Join us at Haifa University, the youngest in Israel, located at the heart of
a nature reserve, on top of the Carmel mountain with breathtaking views
(lively nightlife and a beach nearby).
