Welcome!

fEn03tC6Welcome to my homepage. I am Susanne Boll and I am Professor of Media Informatics and Multimedia Systems in the Department of Computing Science at the University of Oldenburg, in Germany, which I also head as department director since 2013. In 2005, I joined the ranks of the executive board of the OFFIS–Institute for Information Technology in Oldenburg, an associated research institute of the University of Oldenburg. Within OFFIS, I act as the scientific head of many international and national research projects in the field of intelligent user interfaces and initiated  the Human–Machine-Interaction Competence Center which I still oversee as a scientific head. In 2012, I was elected as a member of the board of the institute. OFFIS belongs to the top 5% out of 1200 non-university research institutes in Germany and is ranked 14th among 250 non-university institutes in computer science in Germany, according to the German National Science Foundation in 2012.

My research interests lie in the field of multimedia and intelligent user interfaces. I teach Web Engineering and Media Processing in the Bachelor Programme in Computer Science and offer lectures and practical lab courses in HCI, Wearable Computing and Digital Fabrication. I am leading several national and international scientific projects with much cooperation with research experts world wide. I head one of the few leading groups in Europe that works on mobile and ambient user interfaces exploring different novel modalities such as visual, auditory and tactile in pervasive displays. We strongly embed our research in the field of personal health and save transportation as a major application domains.  I am very proud to work with wonderful people in Oldenburg that make our research visions happen.10835327_1034217089925207_1518513884350799680_o

This week we are presenting our recent research results in interactive systems at CHI2016 in San Jose. Heiko Müller is demonstrating "TimeLight: Helping Children Understand And Learn Time Durations" in the interacitity sessions. We also show late breaking results in the poster sessions: In the automotive area we work on the "Design of a Human-Machine Interface for Truck Platooning" by Shadan Sadeghian, "VapeTracker: Tracking Vapor Consumption to Help E-cigarette Users Quit" by Abdallah El Ali, and "CubeLendar: Design of a Tangible Interactive Event Awareness Cube" by Andrii Matviienko.
