ACM SIGCHI Summer School on Computational Interaction

Alberto Monge Rofarello will participate to the 3rd ACM SIGCHI Summer School on Computational Interaction. The summer school will be held on Lake Lucerne in Switzerland, organized by ETH Zurich, from the 12th to the 17th of June 2017.

The goal of the summer school is to teach PhD students and researchers the foundations of computational tools in the context of user interface design and their application in interactive systems. In particular, the summer school will be organized around the common themes of optimization and machine learning. The first theme aims at solving interaction and user interface design problems by deriving interface configurations which satisfy constraints and maximize performance criteria. The latter theme, instead, introduces a principled and robust approach to designing a transformation from input to useful action.

The summer school will consist in a mix of theoretical lectures and pratical sessions, and it will close with a full-day hackaton.
