          In the week of January 26th till 30th the three Dutch technical universities (Eindhoven, Twente and Delft) organize a 3TU School Human Technology Interaction.
          This school is organized for Master students and PhD's who study or work in the fields of 'Human Technology Interaction' and 'Human Media Interaction'.
          Goal of the school is providing oversight of the ingredients for research into the use of ambient intelligent systems in creative group processes. Such research is necessarily multidisciplinary as well as interdisciplinary, and that's why it will cover a broad scala of subjects. It consists of sessions of professors and experts of various Dutch universities, as well as some international guests. Also there will be some practical assignments, during which the presented aspects will be put into practice in an interactive way.

          This school will be the first in a row in which we will explore these issues. This first school will present a broad multidisciplinary view of how fundamental insights into human physical and cognitive capabilities can be used to design human-centered technologies that can collaborate symbiotically with humans to enhance human capabilities well outside the range of normal biological variation.
