Why apply at HCI Sorbonne?

The development and the success of our students (from Bachelor to PhD) is a high priority in our group. We provide regular and personal guidance to ensure that students learn to lead successful research projects.

Our group has a strong track record at the CHI conference and is part of the exciting and multi-disciplinary ISIR laboratory (robotics, machine learning, perception, cognitive science, haptics, social interaction, etc.). The ISIR lab is a part of Sorbonne University, formerly  Pierre et Marie Curie University, merged in 2018 with the University Paris-Sorbonne to form three autonomous faculties: Humanities and Social Sciences, Sciences and Medicine.
