The HCI Winter School is a practical, hands-on course to expose students to the wide range of research in Human-Computer Interaction, with an emphasis on the research conducted at in the Department of Human-Centered Interaction at the Université Paris-Saclay . On a practical level, students will learn to read the research literature, as well as present and discuss it. This course is Part 1 of the Career Seminar, which continues in year two of the Masters program.


Because of the pandemic, this course is likely to be presented via video.

The course begins on Friday morning, on 8 January, 2021 and continues weekly until 19 February.
The first class involves lecture and exercises related to reading the research literature in Human-Computer Interaction.
The remaining classes will each introduce a lab within the Human-Centered Computing Department, where researchers will discuss their current research and ask students to engage in activities related to that research. After a break, students will work in small groups to present and discuss the articles assigned the previous week, followed by a brief description of the readings for the upcoming week.
