The Eindhoven University of Technology wants to create a network between the faculties E, W&I and TM and the people presently working at IPO that will work on innovations in the area of User-System Interaction (USI). The Eindhoven University of Technology intends to achieve this by educating multi-disciplinairymultidisciplinary researchers, by strengthening USI research within the faculties, and by promoting the collaboration between these faculties and IPO.

As a contribution to this goal, IPO – Center for User-System Interaction organises a two-day symposium on User-System Interaction (SUSI).
