The German research community in the area of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is highly lively and manifold. The German HCI provides a platform for fascinating research, aspirating labs, and the exciting events of this community. Our roots lie in the organization of the German HCI events at the ACM CHI conference, where we invite attendees to join us for discussing and exchanging the latest of HCI research in a relaxed atmosphere. In addition, we also started to support further community events within the German HCI community.

Currently, we are looking into ways how to grow and organize this PhD-led platform in the future. If you have any suggestions, feedback, thoughts, or want to join, please let us know!


The German HCI is a community effort driven by a dynamic and always-changing team of PhD students from different research labs. Please check out our various event pages to see who deserves the credit for organizing these!
In the following, we have listed currently active people that you can reach out to if you have any questions, as well as former members who notably influenced and shaped the German HCI.
