The Chair of Communication Science is located at the Institute of Linguistics and Communication Science, member of the Faculty of Philosophy and part of an over-faculty center, the Human-Computer Interaction Center, shortform HCIC, at the RWTH.
The topics of the chair are investigated in a number of third-party funded projects, both on behalf of public and industrial sponsors. Our projects address different questions in the context of technology perception, human-technology interaction, acceptance and risk communication.
The HCI series deals with interdisciplinary topics from the point of intersection between architecture, computer science, psychology, and empirical social research. In the future, the HCI series will present writings that are the results of the research at the HCIC. The focus will be on current challenges of integrating new technologies into the scopes of humans, media, space, and society. The HCI series is published by Apprimus Wissenschaftsverlag.
