Hi all,

It's been a long time since I posted anything, but I've been focusing on research and courses at the uni

Finally I took some time to update the research page with a little more info about research efforts, with a link to CiteULike, sorry it took months to write a few lines

Meeting next week is very hard for me to attend I'm afraid.

I'm going to HCI International in Florida, anyone else going there? I'll be there July 11-14 to present a paper I wrote together with Michelle, Kevin and Dimitris.

Best wishes,
Thomas
