About

Enrico Rukzio is a Full Professor of Media Informatics, the head of the Human-Computer-Interaction group and director of the Institute for Media Research and Media Development at Ulm University.

He is interested in designing intelligent interactive systems that enable people to be more efficient, satisfied and expressive in their daily lives. His research focuses on the design of novel interaction concepts, devices and applications in areas such as mobile and wearable interaction, computerized eyewear, cross-device interactions, interaction in smart environments, human-technology interaction for elderly people, automotive user interfaces and interactive production planning.

Enrico regularly serves as a program committee member / associate chair / associate editor for conferences and journals (e.g. AutomotiveUI, ACM Multimedia, CHI, MobileHCI, Percom, TEI, Ubicomp/IMWUT or UIST) and regularly reviews for various funding bodies (e.g. BMVIT, BMBF, CDG, DAAD, DFG, FWF, NWO or SNF). He was PC Co-Chair of PerDis 2020, Conference Co-Chair of MobileHCI 2015, PC Co-Chair of MUM 2015, PC Chair of ISCT 2015, SIG Co-Chair of CHI 2015 & CHI 2014, PC Co-Chair of Mobile HCI 2013 and Conference Chair of MUM 2012

Together with his students, he has won best paper awards at CHI, EuroVR, ISWC, ITS, MobileHCI and MUM. His research and supervision has been funded by BMBF, Carl Zeiss, Carl Zeiss Foundation, Daimler, DFG, EU, DOCOMO Euro-Labs, EPSRC, Nokia, Mercator Foundation, MWK BW and NWDA.

At Ulm University he served as head of the examination board (Vorsitzender des Fachprüfungsausschuss) [2013-16] and dean of studies (Studiendekan) [2017-20] for the Bachelor and Master degrees in Computer Science, Media Informatics and Software Engineering. Furthermore he served as vice dean (Prodekan) [2018-2020] and head of the habilitation board (Habilitationsausschuss) [2019-2020] of the Faculty of Engineering, Computer Science and Psychology.

Prior to his current position, he was an Assistant Professor at the Ruhr Institute for Software Technology (University of Duisburg-Essen) and a RCUK academic fellow & lecturer at the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Munich
