The Cognitive Science Section (CSS) is a research group at the Institute of Interactive Systems and Data Science (ISDS) at the Graz University of Technology (TUGraz), Austria. CSS is an interdisciplinary group that consists of psychologists, computer scientists, and mathematicians, with strong connection to the Department of Psychology at University of Graz, as well as the Know-Center (a research institution focusing on big data analytics and applications). The group has worked and gained experience in more than thirty research projects on national and European level in the context of Technology-enhanced Learning, Secure Society, Cultural Heritage, and Smart Cities.
In general, CSS targets research fields where cognitive science meets technology. More precisely, its research areas encompass the fields of technology-enhanced learning and related technologies, decision making and decision support systems, adaptation and personalization, cognitive modeling, and evaluation and related technical support. CSS follows a multi-disciplinary approach to assemble solid theories, methodologies, and technologies in formal frameworks that guide and integrate research and development.
