WISE (Web & Information Systems Engineering)
The Web & Information Systems Engineering (WISE) Lab is a research unit of the Department of Computer Science at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and is headed by Prof. Dr. Beat Signer. The activities of WISE concentrate on innovative information systems such as next generation web applications, context-aware applications and cross-media information spaces.
The WISE lab further investigates human-computer interaction aspects for those systems, such as interactive paper and cross-media solutions, data physicalisation, tangible holograms as well as multimodal and multi-touch interaction. We develop new engineering methodologies, tools and software frameworks for the rapid prototyping and efficient realisation of innovative information environments.
