"From the Internet to robotics, technology is changing the way people live and learn. As new technologies become ever more critical to people's lives, it is important to design them to support people in their roles as learners, explorers, and workers." The Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL) at the University of Maryland is an interdisciplinary lab comprised of faculty and students from Computer Science, Education, Psychology, and Information Studies. HCIL develops advanced user interfaces and design methodology and provides collaborative research summaries, publication and the sponsorship of open houses, as well as workshops and symposiums. They also have a "research project highlights" area that currently contains information on new approaches to information visualization, interfaces for digital libraries, multimedia resources for learning communities, zoomable user interfaces (ZUIs), technology design methods with and for children, and instruments for evaluating user interface technologies.
