Welcome to the Interactive Computing Experiences Research Cluster of Excellence at the University of Central Florida. Our mission is to develop innovative techniques, tools, and applications that improve the overall experience between humans and machines. The vision of this cluster is to be a world class research leader in the innovative development and evaluation of interactive technology experiences that benefit humanity.

Research Cluster Goals:
  • explore and develop core technologies to improve beneficial interactive technology user experiences and study their effectiveness
  • foster multidisciplinary research in beneficial interactive user experiences
  • disseminate research findings in top conferences and journals
  • foster collaboration with industry
  • support entrepreneurship activities based on ISUE activities
  • provide a continual stream of skilled graduates to partake in high‐tech interactive technology jobs.

More specifically, we are interested in the creation and evaluation of advanced interfaces that support education, entertainment, and general work productivity.

We are always looking for undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. students to come work in our lab. If you're interested in the things you see on this site, contact Dr. LaViola.
