Human-Computer Interaction

Advancing user interaction and the display of complex information

Research on human-computer interaction plays a central role across multiple teams at Microsoft Research. Our work is focused on advancing the way users interact with computing devices. This includes search, access, and information management, the display of complex data and information, user modeling and activity recognition, efficient input and interaction, the role of automation, and the coupling of intelligent systems with direct manipulation.



About 70 Microsoft researchers contributed papers, are participating on panels and leading plenary sessions at this year's premiere conference on human-computer interaction:
