Summer student HCI research experience in Germany

The Human Computer Interaction labs at the University of New Hampshire and the University of Stuttgart are co-organizing a summer HCI student research experience. We are now inviting applications for the summer of 2014. We expect that 3 undergraduate and 3 graduate students  will conduct research for just under 9 weeks at the Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Lab of Professor Albrecht Schmidt at the University of Stuttgart (<>). The program will be funded by the NSF through its International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program.

Student research will focus on two areas: in-vehicle speech interaction and speech interaction with public displays. For in-vehicle speech, students will relate the benefits and limitations of speech interaction with in-vehicle devices with real-world parameters, such as how well speech recognition works at any given moment. They will also work to identify why it is that talking to a passenger appears to reduce the probability of a crash, and how we might be able to use this new information to create safer in-vehicle speech interactions. Similarly, students will explore how speech interaction can allow smooth interaction with electronic public displays.

Successful applicants will receive full financial support for participation, covering items such as airfare, room and board, health insurance, as well as a $500/week stipend. The total value of the financial package is approximately $8,500 for 9 weeks.

Details about the program, including applications instructions, are available at Please note that this program is only available to US citizens and permanent residents. If you have questions please contact Andrew Kun ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>).
