  • Semiotic Engineering Research Group

  • Semiotic Engineering was motivated by the idea of bringing interactive software designers onto the HCI stage, as the creators of communicative artifacts of a peculiar nature. In our view, interactive computer applications are one-shot messages, sent from system designers to system users, about how to interact with the system in order to achieve a certain range of goals. Interaction is achieved when users and system exchange messages in a uniquely engineered interface language. The goal of Semiotic Engineering is to characterize HCI in semiotic terms, and to provide a series of models, methods, tools and techniques that will help us understand and build better interactive artifacts.
