The HOTLab is a unique university-based HCI (Human Computer Interaction) research and training facility that fosters interdisciplinary research, education and training to improve interactive technologies for human endeavors. We strive for an expanding and dynamic community in which academia, industry and government can continue to guide and challenge each other, in which people feel supported in their endeavors and a part of something that shapes the future.

As the name Human Oriented Technology Laboratory suggests, the research we do at the HOTLab incorporates these fundamental ideas, whilst demonstrating a broad, multidisciplinary approach that includes but also moves beyond traditional HCI and usability issues. The HOTLab grows from a long and dedicated commitment to issues in human computer interaction. This commitment has been carried through the last thirty-two years by members of the lab, formerly known as the CURE Lab (Computer User Research and Evaluation).
