2015 UNH IRES: HCI student summer research experience in Germany

HCI Lab, Stuttgart

The UNH HCI Lab is happy to announce the 2015 UNH International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program. Within the program we plan to fund 3 undergraduate and 3 graduate students to conduct research at the Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Lab of Professor Albrecht Schmidt at the University of Stuttgart. Professor Schmidt and his lab are among the world leaders in the field of HCI. Successful applicants will participate in the program between June 1 and July 31, 2015. They 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.

Student research within the UNH IRES program will focus on developing and testing tools for estimating cognitive load in the domains of in-vehicle user interfaces, knowledge acquisition, speech interfaces, or similar areas.

UNH IRES students will live and work in Stuttgart. Stuttgart is a city of about 600,000, where students will encounter history around every corner. For example, Stuttgart is believed by many to be the cradle of the automobile, and students can visit the Mercedes-Benz museum that is devoted to the history of this iconic brand.

The program is funded by the National Science Foundation, Office of International and Integrative Activities. We are grateful for the support.
