Welcome to the FIT Lab!
What is the FIT Lab?FIT means Future Interaction Technologies — it’s about the complex devices that change our lives, for better or worse — whether in our homes, cars, mobile phones or medical devices.
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) can be a creative and exciting field of research, but in collaboration with companies like Microsoft Research, Nokia, and the NHS, the FIT Lab likes to focus on Grand Challenges
The FIT Lab was opened in 2006 by Professor Harold Thimbleby and has since grown to include a range of world-leading HCI experts.
As well as performing world-class HCI research, the FIT Lab runs PhD, MSc and MRes programs.
Where is the FIT Lab?The FIT Lab is part of the Computer Science Department of Swansea University in Wales, UK.
ConferencesThe FIT Lab team regularly submit, review and attend many world leading international conferences, including:
• Mobile HCI
