 Briefly describe your organisation
CURE is one of Europe´s leading organizations in the area of Usability Engineering, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), User Interface Design, User Centred Design und Next Generation Interfaces. CURE has been working on the development and application of user centred design methodologies, innovative user interfaces and natural interaction environments for several years. Active in several application domains, CURE has gained outstanding experience in complex application domains. Over the years, CURE has been involved and led more than 300 projects with 150 partners from 19 countries. The projects covered approximately 20 different application fields. Research topics are focused on the advanced interaction modalities, learner centred design, multimedia, mobile systems, advanced web environments and multi channel platforms. In particular all aspects dealing with mobile HCI issues are one of CURE´s major strengths. CUREs laboratories are fully equipped with advanced research facilities.
