The Mensch und Computer (MuC) conference is an annual conference organised by the German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V.) and the German Usability Professionals Association (German UPA). With more than 700 participants in the past, the Mensch und Computer MuC is one of the largest German-speaking IT conferences and the largest HCI conference in Europe.
The main scope of the conference is to connect people with other IT professionals, keep in touch with the latest trends in the field of HCI, interface design and usability. Therefore, MuC comprises two main tracks. While the scientific track (“Mensch-Computer-Interaktion” - MCI) presents new research findings in the field of HCI, the practice-oriented section (“Usability Professionals” - UP) focuses on state-of-the-art reports and workshops on usability and user experience.
