Dr Frank Honold

Frank Honold has a degree in Computer Science and graduated from the Institute of Media Informatics, Ulm University. In 2009 he joined the institute as research associate and member of the scientific staff.

He has participated in the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre SFB/TRR 62 ‘‘Companion-Technology for Cognitive Technical Systems’’, which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). His thematic focus is on the topics of multimodal fission and modality arbitration in the domain of multimodal systems.

Dr Honold competed his Ph.D. thesis - Interaktionsmanagement und Modalitätsarbitrierung für eine adaptive und multimodale Mensch-Computer Interaktion - in August 2018.
