Panayiotis Koutsabasis is an Associate Professor of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at the Department of Product & Systems Design Engineering, University of the Aegean, Greece. 

He has been teaching HCI and several related courses (Advanced User Interfaces, CSCW, Design for All, Mobile HCI, Interaction Design Studio, etc.) for over 20 years at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. He has supervised over 90 diplomae and M.Sc. theses in those subjects. He is a founding member of the Interactive Systems Design Laboratory and he has actively contributed to the formulation of the course program of the department on issues related to HCI. 

His research interests include HCI and design, user experience and evaluation studies of HCI, HCI and education, natural user interfaces, especially kinaesthetic and gestural interaction, mobile HCI and mixed / augmented / virtual reality, in domains of application like education, cultural heritage, cooperation, and design support. He has co-authored about 100 papers in scientific journals, conferences, book chapters, and 2 books on HCI (in Greek), including: Inter. J. of Human-Computer Studies, Int. J. of Human-Computer Interaction, Behaviour and Information Technology, Virtual Reality, Presence, Design Studies, CoDesign, BJET, ACM Computing in Cultural Heritage, J. of Usability Studies, Mobile HCI, etc. He has worked as a scientific or technical coordinator and researcher in more than 30 European and national collaborative R&D projects.

He is a member of ACM SIGCHI, the ACM SIGCHI Greek chapter, and a tactical reviewer in many scientific journals and conferences.
