HCI SI 2022 flashbacks

On Tuesday, November 29th 2022, the 7th HCI SI conference was held at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Electrical Engineering. The program covered many interesting topics in the field oh HCI, from in-vehicle human-machine interaction in (semi)automated vehicles, analysis of human physiological and psychological responses during various tasks, exposure to various multimedia content, the use of machine learning for the analysis and modeling of human behavior to user interfaces and applications based on virtual and augmented reality. It also featured a presentation on the EU H2020 HADRIAN project, numerous insights from the project results and two keynotes from its partners, dr. Paolo Pretto and dr. Alexander Mirnig.

We hope to see you again in 2023!
