Fill out a pre-application form (described at the top of the computer science graduate admission page). List me as a possible supervisor (you could also include the other HCI supervisors). Include details about your experiences and interests in human computer interaction. This brings information about you to my formal attention.
Examine the computer science graduate program page to find out about faculty and the program.
Due to the high volume of email, I will not respond directly to admission requests unless the pre-application form (above) is completed. However, if you have specific questions about my program and/or research, contact me at saul@cpsc.ucalgary.ca .
