Laboratory of User Interaction and Software Engineering
The Laboratory of User Interaction and Software Engineering (LoUISE) was created in 2000 and during the last years has aimed his research activities towards Human-Computer Interaction discipline. Its goals have been always centred in enhancing the quality of interactive systems. With this aim it has stood on other branches of knowledge such as Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence or the Design of Control Systems for the development of cyber-physical systems. Nowadays the group consists of ten researchers belonging to the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM). Throughout the trajectory of the group, the laboratory has included a high number of researchers working both in Spain and abroad. Regarding the research lines, they have changed, currently focusing in health area.

Supervised PhD Thesis
Miguel Ángel Teruel Martínez has been awarded for the work: “Improving Post-WIMP Collaborative Systems from the Requirements Specification”, as Best Doctoral Thesis in Software Engineering, by the Society of Software Engineering and Software Development Technologies (SISTEDES). This work has been developed in the context of the LoUISE group and it revolves around the development of systems such as virtual reality games or tele-rehabilitation systems.
Our paper entitled «Towards the Design of Avatar-Based Therapies for Enhancing Facial Affect Recognition» has been awarded as the ISAMI 2018 Best Workshop Paper Award.
Aurora Macías has obtained the second award for the work: “TankWarVR: collaborative game on Oculus Rift platform”, in the Bachelor Thesis category of the annual call for national standardization awards for students organized by the Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification (AENOR)
Miguel Ángel Teruel Martínez, with his thesis Improving Post-WIMP Collaborative Systems from the Specification of Requirements, directed by professors Pascual González and Elena Navarro, has deserved the Extraordinary Award of Doctorate in the field of Engineering and Architecture. In this work, Teruel Martínez presents the CSRML language with which the needs of a multi-user computer system can be specified.
