The Stuttgart hciLab and the Munich HCI groups (LMU) met this week at the Solsteinhaus for an interdisciplinary doctoral colloquium. This included the presentation of various PhD topics, including virtual reality, eye tracking, affective computing, physiological sensing, or persuasive systems. This was rounded off with leisure activities, such as hiking and zip-lining. Overall, the colloquium provided me with a lot inspiration for my future research in the area of physiological sensing and workload-aware computing. Since a part of the hciLab is moving to the LMU, I’m looking forward to work and collaborate with the awesome people I met there ;).
