Thank you for your interest in the Visiting Fellowship Program offered by the Cyprus Interaction Lab (CIL) of the Cyprus University of Technology.

The Visiting Fellowship program allows researchers and practitioners in the area of Human Computer Interaction and Instructional Technology to be hosted at the CIL Lab and access its facilities and equipment for the purpose of completing a research project. CIL Visiting Fellowships are unpaid fellowships.

International applicants are encouraged to apply for external funding (e.g., Intra-European Fellowships for career development (IEF) – Marie Curie Actions and International Incoming Fellowships (IIF) – Marie Curie Actions)

The Visiting Fellowship program aims to encourage collaboration between CIL and other Labs around the world and to promote research in the following areas.

  • Human Computer Interaction (HCI)
  • Inclusive design/Accessibility
  • Educational Technology
  • Social aspects of computing
  • Technology-enhanced learning
  • Technology integration in K-20
  • Educational Robotics
  • Advanced Technologies for Learning
  • Computer Games and their social and pedagogical dimensions
  • Computer Mediated Communication (CMC)
  • Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL)
  • Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW)

The Visiting Fellowship can take place at any time of the year and its duration can vary from 2 weeks to a year depending on the project and availability of space and equipment. The Fellowship does not cover any costs for accommodation or traveling expenses but can make arrangements with the University to rent a studio nearby at a lower cost.
