Facilities

ICICS BuildingThe ICICS/Computer Science building is a 60,000 ft.2 (5,600 m2), state-of-the-art facility housing advanced infrastructure for conducting human-centred technologies research.

The shared labs on the 7th floor of the ICICS/CS building are accessible to all ICICS members. Equipment in these labs includes a sound studio, facilities for conducting user studies (Usability Labs), a motion-capture lab, and a meeting room. Researchers in 40+ dedicated labs are making advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, haptics, signal processing, multimedia, user interfaces, biomedical engineering, and many other areas. These labs are reconfigurable as technology and personnel change, in accordance with ICICS lab guidelines.

The HATCH startup accelerator in the ICICS building provides a temporary home for our more entrepreneurial members, graduate students, and staff, where they can advance their venture guided by seasoned Entrepreneurs-in-Residence.
