CoDesign is confluence: its a confluence of research areas; of interdisciplinary, mixed-methods ways of identifying and pursuing human-behavioural research; and of human-centered, socio-technologically motivated opportunities where basic research in Artificial Intelligence and spatial cognition, and technological artefacts emanating therefrom, ought to demonstrate their application and impact.
CoDesign addresses -as one area of ongoing emphasis- the interpretation and synthesis of embodied cognitive experiences under ecologically valid naturalistic conditions using a synergy of empirical and analytical methods rooted in the cognitive and computational disciplines. Human-centred characteristics are central to our conception of AI-driven assistive technologies.
We investigate the formal & cognitive foundations for human-centred computing, and the human-centred design,
development, and usability of cognitive technologies aimed at human-in-the-loop assistance & empowerment in
decision-making, planning, creative-technical problem-solving, and automation.

CoDesign 2017: The Bremen Summer of Cognition and Design, was setup as series of mutually complementary events in the areas of artificial intelligence, spatial cognition, design computing and cognition, creativity, multi-modality, communication and media, and human-behaviour studies.see CoDesign 2017
International School on Human-Centred Computing (HCC 2016) was organised
in the immediate vicinity of the Hanseatic city of Bremen, Germany.
The educational programme of HCC 2016 included lectures, keynotes, and tutorials delivered
by an internationally distinguished faculty. The school featured a Young Researchers Forum
for participating research students.
The research-based educational agenda of HCC 2016 covered basic topics in Artificial Intelligence, Visuo-Spatial Cognition and Computation, Cognitive Science and Psychology, and Human-Computer Interaction.
