We (Cyprus Interaction Lab of Τεχνολογικό Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου – Cyprus University of Technology) are again organizing a Summer School on Research Methods in HCI. This year the summer school is having a special emphasis on Ambient Assisted Living. It mainly targets PhD students, researchers and skilled practitioners.
This training event is sponsored by AAPELE, EstCHI, and ACM SIGCHI Cyprus and CroACM (these are local chapters of ACM SIGCHI and ACM) and co-organised by Tallinn University and the Cyprus Interaction Lab (http://www.cyprusinteracitonlab.com) of the Cyprus University of Technology. The two universities also jointly offer an online master program in MSc Interaction Design (http://idmaster.eu).
The overarching aim is to improve participants’ understanding of significant research methods commonly or increasingly used in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Such enhanced understanding will enable them to select and combine appropriate research methods for their specificHCI related projects and to contextualise them without unintended impacts on validity.
This event started with COST Action TwinTide in 2012 and has since been organised annually with generous sponsorship from ACM SIGCHI and other institutions. Last year it was hosted by the Cyprus Interaction Lab at Cyprus Interaction Lab in Limassol Cyprus (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/…).
This edition will take place in Dubrovnik, Croatia from 11th to 15th July, 2016. Participants will be awarded 4 ECTS by Tallinn University, upon full participation in the course.

PhD students, researchers and skilled practitioners interested in participating in this training event can read more about the registration process here (http://idlab.tlu.ee/rmhci/?page_id=366). AAPELE will sponsor (700 EUR) up to 20 students. Non-comulative support from ACM is also available.
