Survey on professional practices of designers

As part of a European research project COnCEPT, we are conducting a survey on the professional practices of designers. The COnCEPT project aims to develop a collaborative set of software tools designed to support professional design teams. If you are involved in any type of design, please respond to our survey which should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Respondents of the survey can win a gift certificate and will be informed about the project as it develops.

The survey is available at: http://goo.gl/MF3StK . Thanks!

We have several new job openings for HCI researchers at Hasselt University – iMinds:

  • We have a research associate computer science – specialization ‘human-computer interaction’ available for a researcher to work on projects related with interaction and healthcare innovation. The new research will initially work on the iMinds FallRisk project, performing research and development on mobile interaction to support people and caregivers in fall prevention and resolution for elderly. Mobile development skills and a keen interest in interaction and software are strongly appreciated for this job. This work is done in collaboration with others in the context of the iMinds ICON FallRisk project.
  • There is also a PhD student computer science, specialisation ‘human-computer interaction, position available in which we will work on professional translations interfaces to improve the efficiency of (communities of) translators. The systems currently used by professional translators, are susceptible to improvement in many areas.
