Center for Research On Mediated Interaction (CROMI)
CROMI seeks to advance integrated research and development activities in the area of Human-Computer Interaction. The term “computer” in this phrase currently encompasses a wide array of artifacts, devices, and machines permeate contemporary life. Our goal is to understand technologically mediated interactions among individuals, organizations, and communities, and to contribute to the development of sustainable, equitable, and efficient socio-technical arrangements that would support people in their daily activities. Our work is research-driven and application-oriented with an explicit intent for socio-technical intervention. We find these challenging but worthwhile objectives because of the increasing complexity and sophistication of computer technologies, their ubiquitous presence in people’s daily life, and their often transparent and invisible character.
