The Institute of Information Processing and Decision Making (IIPDM), University of Haifa
The University of Haifa is one of the 7 universities in Israel, and is the primary liberal arts university in northern Israel. Its research is fostered by a variety of centers, institutes, and laboratories, which ponder vital questions of life and society and proffer solutions that are not just academic.
The Institute of Information Processing and Decision Making (IIPDM), established in 1983, is the primary research facility that serves the research needs of nine senior researchers from the Department of Psychology who cover in their interests all aspects of human cognition. The IIPDM also serves as a learning and training environment for a large number of graduate students enrolled in the graduate program in Cognitive Psychology and Ergonomics. All of them carry out their thesis research at the IIPDM and most of them are also involved in other ongoing research projects. The research carried out at the IIPDM covers a wide range of topics in cognition and ergonomics, including visual perception, attention, human memory and metamemory, metacognition, reading processes, cognitive neuropsychology, psycholinguistics, decision making, and applied cognitive psychology. This research has been published in the leading international scientific journals.
IIPDM researchers have extensive collaborations with researchers from other countries. Some of the bi-national projects have been supported by the German-Israeli Foundation for Scientific Research and Development (GIF), the German-Israeli Project Cooperation (DIP), and the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF).
