Personal profile


The main objective in my research is to focus on high-risk research questions that could lead to ground-breaking results.

Research profile

Matthias Rauterberg is Full Professor of Designing Interactive Systems. He is co-founder of the Industrial Design department and Data Science Center at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and also of the Technical Committee (TC) of Entertainment Computing of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP).

Rauterberg is interested in designing interactive systems to address the cultural sub- or even unconscious layer of the user. He has a solid background in philosophy, psychology and computer science. He is in favor of a rigorous empirical validation of his design claims. His recent research is in the area of entertainment computing, cognitive systems, human-computer interaction, and design science. 

As a prolific author, Rauterberg has over 450 publications in international journals, conference proceedings, books, and more. He is also editor and member of the editorial board of several leading international journals. He is co-editor in chief of the Entertainment Computing journal (Elsevier). Rauterberg has been and still is member of many national and international review boards (i.e. national science foundations, European Research Council, etc.). He supervised more than 20 PhDs, 20% of which got a distinction (top-5%).
