Slice of Science

On 6 June 2018 the second installment of “A Slice of Science” took place in Eindhoven. In this recurring informal get-together members of the 4TU H&T (and guests) talk about various methodological issues faced by researchers in the domain of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

In the first part of this slice, speaker Daniel Lakens discussed the challenges for ensuring that statistical analyses used in empirical studies in HCI remain a tool for valid and reproducible research. He stressed the role that methodological rigor plays for maintaining the trust of society at large in HCI research and outlined several methods that more mature fields like Psychology have already begun to establish as a means to enforce such rigor. 

Expanding this discussion, participants from the 4TU H&T and the Human-Technology Interaction group of the TU Eindhoven were invited to use the meeting as a platform for discussion of the methodological challenges that they faced in their own ongoing research projects.

A follow-up 4TU workshop on research engineering for transparency and privacy is currently in planning, as these aspects are also important for the provision of trustworthy research outcomes.
