The aim of the course is to prepare an overview of research on Advanced User Interfaces. The course is based on the common practice of scientific presentations and panel discussions. This requires reading and critically reflecting on scientific articles in detail. In addition to reading, each student will present their results and participate in panel discussions.

This exercise provides insights into state-of-art research on Advanced User Interfaces. The topics are based on the contents of the accompanying lecture.
