Welcome to INTERACT 2015 in Bamberg
Welcome to INTERACT 2015
The 15th IFIP TC.13 International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction - INTERACT 2015 took place from 14 to 18 September 2015 in Bamberg, Germany.
The theme of INTERACT 2015 was "Connection.Tradition.Innovation". INTERACT is among the world's top conferences in Human-Computer Interaction. Starting with the first INTERACT conference in 1990, this conference series has been organised under the aegis of the Technical Committee 13 on Human-Computer Interaction of the UNESCO International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP). This committee aims at developing the science and technology of the interaction between humans and computing devices.
The city of Bamberg is proud of its more than 1000-year-old centre. It has more than 2,400 historically listed buildings and became a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1993. With 70000 inhabitants, Bamberg is a small town in the heart of Europe. The University of Bamberg is an illustrative example of combining the past and the present--it is one of the oldest universities of Germany and was originally founded in 1647; after being closed since the 19th century, it became one of the newest universities of Germany to open again in 1979 and is, therefore, an ideal place to gather under the theme.
Many thanks to all who contributed to the sucess of INTERACT 2015 in Bamberg.
