Coordination and Interaction Systems. This interdisciplinary research aims at handling coordination and interaction challenges using systems engineering methodologies. The underlying approach is to exploit in an integrated manner the dynamical couplings that exist between users, devices and information systems to ease adoption and improve usability in distributed frameworks. Innovative domains of deployment are cyber physical systems, autonomous transportation systems, social media for digital education and knowledge management, as well as humanitarian technology.
