Michel Beaudouin-Lafon (20 July 1961) is a French computer scientist working in the field of human–computer interaction. He received his PhD from the Paris-Sud 11 University in 1985. He is currently professor of computer science at Paris-Sud 11 University since 1992 (in the in Situ group[1]) and was director of LRI, the laboratory for computer science, from 2002 to 2009.

He has worked in Human-Computer Interaction for over 20 years and was elected to the ACM SIGCHI Academy in 2006. His research interests[2] include fundamental aspects of interaction, engineering of interactive systems, computer-supported cooperative work and novel interaction techniques. In 2004, his paper "Designing interaction, not interfaces"[3] has been one of the most heavily downloaded papers in the ACM Digital Library.[4] He has been featured in Ben Shneiderman's HCI Pioneers.[5]

Michel Beaudouin-Lafon was one of the founders, and first president, of AFIHM,[6] the French national equivalent of Association for Computing Machinery SIGCHI. In recent years he has played major roles in CHI and UIST[7] conferences, serving as program chair or program committee member. From 2002 to 2008, he was a member-at-large of the ACM Council and member of the ACM Publications Board.
