You are cordially invited to participate in a one-day hands-on workshop on “Physical User Interfaces with Printed Electronics” organized by the HCI group at Saarland University and the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbrücken. The goal of this workshop is to acquire basic conceptual and practical skills in developing thin, flexible and customizable physical user interfaces with printed electronics for interactive devices and objects.

Topics and learning outcomes of the studio includes:

  • Personalized digital design of printed electronics.
  • Basics of different sensor types and actuators (Touch sensing, RFID, EL displays, etc.).
  • Fast prototyping of printed electronics with conductive inkjet printing.
  • Hardware interfacing and data communication with Arduino.
  • Developing sample application scenarios with printed sensors/actuators.
  • Introduction to high fidelity printed electronics with screen printing.

There will be some basic electronic components provided (Arduino, breadboards, wires, and sensors). Feel free to bring your own ones as well. Please bring your personal computers and install the Arduino IDE (https://www.arduino.cc) on it.

When: Friday, 23rd June 2017 from 10:00 to 16:00.

Where:
Saarland University
Human-Computer Interaction Lab
Campus E 1.7
66123 Saarbrücken
Germany

Participation:
The workshop is part of the ETIS summer school 2017. We have a few extra spots for interested external participants, who can join during this workshop day for free of charge. You have to register via email. Please send an email to mlinn@mmci.uni-saarland.de no later than 7nd June, 2017 midnight with subject “Hands-on Workshop: Physical User Interfaces with Printed Electronics”. Include your name, institute/university and any special requirement you have (dietary restrictions, etc.). Spots will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis.
