Cognition Perception and Uses (CPU Team)

The goal of the CPU group (Cognition, Perception, Use) is to conduct pluridisciplinary research with the joint perspective from Psychology, Ergonomics and Computer Science in order to address research questions about (or that can be useful for) the design or evaluation of Human-Computer Interaction.

Our research aims at:

1) studying human behaviour and cognition to improve the design of homme-computer interfaces and systems,

2) designing human-computer interactions to study and better understand human behaviour and cognition.

It is applied in domains such social and professional skills enhancement, behaviour simuation or persuasive technologies.

Our work relies on in-group projects (see e.g. ANR VICTEAMS, NARECA or INGREDIBLE) that federate research from several membres of the CPU group, in-lab projects with other groups at LIMSI (e.g. about human-agent interaction in virtual environments with the VENISE group or sign language with the ILES group) to design and evaluate interactions that involve human and machines and to contribute to the development of knowledge about human and artificial cognition.

Members of the group include two full professors and one assistant professor in Computer Science, five assistant professors in Psyhology (including one in Ergonomics) and a dozen of PhD student and postdoc researchers. Day to day interactions between researchers from these disciplines are thus supported, for example for co-supervising PhD students and for working together on joint collaborative projects.
