Welcome to CSIM!

CSIM's goal is to study and advance the design, construction and deployment of advanced autonomous artifacts that interact in complex physical and social environments, grounded in our understanding of biological, psychological and technological principles.

CSIM students join the Mobile World Congress 2017 and 4YFN event in Barcelona

Some CSIM master students (https://www.upf.edu/csim) took the opportunity to be at the biggest event in mobile technology, the Mobile World Congress 2017. The MWC exhibition and conference offer a programme that provides an in-depth coverage of the contemporary and future mobile industry, highlighting specific areas of growth and opportunity.

At YoMo: The Youth Mobile Festival within the  MOBILE World Congress Barcelona Cristina Valero together with The Full-Body Interaction Lab (of the CMTech group, DTIC, UPF) presents a preliminary version of her master thesis, dedicated to develop a storytelling tool for children based on the World as Support interaction paradigm.


CSIM students joined a parallel event 4YFN, to get to know the fastest growing digital startups community covering the latest technological developments, including VR applied to health.

Luca Cozzolino, Laura Ulisse and Kami Artik visit the stand of the UPF spinoff company Eodyne specialized in VR technologies for neurorehabilitation, a topic very close to their CSIM thesis.



Back to class, the second trimester has started with great courses!
CSIM students are back to class to start with new courses and learn more about methodology in science, with the compulsory course Systems Design, Integration & Control, and other topics such as cognition, adaptive behaviour and their possible applications in real interactive devices with the 3 elective courses Cognitive Systems: Theory & Models, Adaptive Behaviour, Advanced Interface Design.

The completion of the thesis State of the art and the thesis midterm presentations are the students main goals for this 2nd trimester.


Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas break!

Best wishes for the 2016 holiday season from CSIM.

Former CSIM student to start a PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology

It is a pleasure to hear how our CSIM students continue their career undertaking more specialised academic study following what they have learned during their master study.

This week Maria Bargués i Ribera, CSIM class 2014-2015, is visiting her thesis supervisor Prof. Ivan Herreros at SPECS lab and shared with him the good news that she is going to start a PhD program at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, a research centre of excellence in Europe.

This Thursday at 12:00 Maria will be presenting her research work on Evolutionary Game Theory at the Journal Club of SPECS lab.
