CHI 2014 in Toronto

The largest conference on human-computer interaction, the ACM CHI, took place in Toronto from April 28th to May 2nd with this year’s slogan “One of a CHInd”. The Interactive Media Lab Dresden was also involved as Martin Spindler, Ulrike Kister and former student Martin Schüssler presented a full paper and an interactivity (photo gallery). Both Martins gave a talk about their research on Pinch Drag Flick vs. Spatial Input: Rethinking Zoom & Pan on Mobile Displays. In this paper, we compared traditional multitouch navigation on mobile devices with spatial movements for pan and zoom. Additionally, the application could be experienced as an interactive demo called Move Your Phone: Spatial Input-based Document Zoom & Pan on Mobile Displays Revisited. For this they brought a whole setup of cameras and tripods to Canada. Ulrike and Martin Spindler were also student volunteers who supported conference organization.

Invited Talks with Prof. Holger Theisel + Dr. Fabrice Matulic

We are pleased to announce two talks in our series Dresden Talks on Interaction and Visualization. On Friday, 9th of May 2014, Prof. Holger Theisel (University of Magdeburg) will give a presentation about Optimal Streamlines and Streamsurfaces for 3D Flow Visualization.

One week later, on Friday, 16th of May 2014, you are invited to attend the talk of Fabrice Matulic (ETH Zurich) about Advanced Document Engineering on Pen and Touch Interactive Surfaces. He will show how UI designers can leverage the interactive capabilities of pen and touch platforms to build intuitive and efficient tools for the production of rich documents.

Both events will take place at 1:00 pm in the lecture room INF E023 at our department. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
