The Michigan Interactive and Social Computing (MISC) research group connects researchers studying human-computer interaction, social computing, and computer-supported cooperative work across the University of Michigan. This is an inherently interdisciplinary research area that includes participants across a variety of schools and departments, including Information, Computer Science and Engineering, Education, the School of Public Health, and Industrial & Operations Engineering. As perhaps indicated by a number of departments, interactive and social computing has become an increasingly important topic across a variety of fields.

MISC is funded by the Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop Fund, UM School of Information, and UM Computer Science and Engineering.
