University of Siegen, Information Systems and New Media

Information and communications technology (ICT) pervades most aspects of our lives and changes everyday practices at work, at home and in our leisure time. The chair of Information Systems and New Media at the University of Siegen performs research into innovative ICT-applications, especially in the practice fields of cooperative work, community support, entertainment, consumer electronics, ageing societies, and sustainability. In doing so, we are contributing to the research fields of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Ubiquitous Computing. Further aspects are methods of participatory design and co-creation processes for concept and product design in Living Lab infrastructures.
