Biography

Biography

Paul Chojecki is a psychologist and works since 2006 at Fraunhofer HHI, where he represents the area of contact-free human-computer interaction. As project manager he drives R&D activities, develops and manages projects for international clients in various industries such as automotive, medical, telecommunications and digital out of home. Paul is an expert in the fields of human-computer interaction (HCI), usability engineering, innovation management and research marketing. His R&D focus is on new ways of HCI, especially computer vision-based contact-free, gestural interaction. One of his current projects is called smart care unit control room. The objective is to develop a 'Proxemic Bedside Monitor' which allows multimodal interaction and adaptive information visualisation at intensive care units.

Since 2008 Paul is general-chair of the World Usability Day Berlin. He and the honorary team evolved this event to one of the largest usability and user experience conferences in Europe.

Paul Chojecki received the Dipl.-Psych. degree in psychology from University Bielefeld, Germany in 2006. During his studies he was working on usability, software ergonomics and usable web design. In addition to his academic studies he was working as a web frontend developer at fractales GmbH Gütersloh, which is today part of Publicis Pixelpark GmbH.

About World Usability Day

World Usability Day was founded by the User Experience Professionals’ Association (UXPA) in the year 2005.

World Usability Day is celebrated annually in November to promote the values of usability and user experience (UX) around the world, both as a profession and as a scientific subject. In 2011 the World Usability Day hosted more than 40,000 visitors at 140 events in 44 countries.

Organizers of the Word Usability Day Berlin are the regional group Berlin-Brandenburg of the German Chapter of the Usability Professionals’ Association e.V. (German UPA) and regional partners representing economy and research. In 2014 World Usability Day Berlin had over 800 visitors with the theme „Engaging the User“.
