Mensch und Computer 2022 (4. – 7. September) at the Technical University of Darmstadt

The Mensch und Computer 2022 took place from September 4-7, 2022 at the Technische Universität Darmstadt.

Launched in 2001, “Mensch und Computer” (MuC) is the largest human-computer interaction conference series in Europe. We were grateful to welcome nearly 600 participants from academia and industry live, in color, physically, and if you will, “for real” in Darmstadt in the year of the 50th anniversary of the Department of Computer Science at the TU Darmstadt – matching to our conference motto: “Facing Realities“.

The sponsors of the conference were the Special Interest Group on Human-Computer Interaction of the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI e.V.) and the German UPA – the professional association of German usability and user experience professionals. The Technical University of Darmstadt and especially the Department of Computer Science was the local host of the conference.

We hope you remember it as fondly as we do….
