Project Sponsors

Our project sponsors are organizations and individuals who make possible far-reaching, high-quality research at the HCII. Our work with sponsors typically engages customers and users in the research process. Our sponsors and we believe that the perspective of customers and users is an essential part of developing the theory and practice of human-computer interaction. Our sponsors are typically interested in research that speaks to both long and short term impact. Projects range from those sponsored by an individual company and performed by a small group of students to multi-department institutes sponsored by large firms or even multi-company consortia.
