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

Susanne Boll and Torben Wallbaum are attending the kick-off for our new three year project - AwareMe. The goal of the project is to unobtrusively support young adults with ADHD through wearable technology that measures physiological and mental states. By analyzing these states, we can provide feedback at opportune moments to facilitate reflection of day-to-day behaviors. We are looking forward to three exciting and interesting years. ...

Andrii Matviienko and Abdo El Ali are presenting our posters at CHI 2017. They received lots of attention. Abdo presents "Face2Emoji" where a user uses facial expressions to filter out emojis on a keyboard to increase and diversify emoji selection on smartphones. Andrii shows the AwareKit, which uses tangible / physical objects to interact with digital calendars. Great work! #chi2017 ... See MoreSee Less
