Join us May 25 in-person or on Zoom to learn about the cutting-edge research happening in the HCIL. In this full-day event, we’ll hear from faculty and students about ongoing research in AI, data visualization, accessibility, health informatics, usable privacy and security, and more. This year we celebrate 40 years of the lab. We’ve done a lot since the lab launched in 1983 and we’re looking forward to what faculty and students contribute in the next 40 years!
