Homepage of Paul Holleis (PhD)

I currently work as a senior researcher within the Cloud Technology Research Group at DOCOMO Euro-Labs, a leading European Research Lab for novel mobile multimeda services. Additionally, I am part of the cross-cutting team on Technology Trends and Business Development.

2011/12, I also took over the responsibility for managing and streamlining the patent process within the research group.

Until end of 2008, I was working as research assistant at the Universität Duisburg-Essen in Essen at the Chair for Pervasive Computing and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich at the Chair for Media Informatics (Lehr- und Forschungseinheit Medieninformatik). In the research group "Embedded Interaction" we conducted research about new means and models for humans to interact with ubiquitous computers (and vice versa).

I am also continuing to work in my free time on a toolkit for combining hardware and software devices with a variety of different underlying technologies targeted at different user groups. See http://www.eitoolkit.de for more information.

The research group's former web page http://www.hcilab.org still has some more details on Embedded Interaction.
