overall design of how a future control room could look like. The Research includes the fields of history (film, architecture),
human-computer interaction, software, GUI-development and the politics of interface design. Researchers and lecturers involved: Martin Reinhart – The Control Room in Film & Architecture Matthias Tarasiewicz – Interface design as experimental system Ulrich Kühn – Human computer interaction and actual tendencies Martin Kaltenbrunner – Tangible user interfaces
