This week Aaron is attending the Second International Symposium on Pervasive Displays at the Google campus in Mountain View, California. He is attending to present a paper co-authored with Jakub Dostal and Per Ola Kristensson in SACHI, along with being a session chair on the second day of the conference. The paper is titled.
Dostal, J., Kristensson, P.O. and Quigley, A. 2013. Multi-view proxemics: distance and position sensitive interaction. In Proceedings of the 2nd International Symposium on Pervasive Displays (PerDis 2013). ACM Press: forthcoming.
The paper presents SACHI research from these three authors at the intersection of proxemic interaction and multi-view display technologies. This work relies on underlying technologies to determine the viewers, their distance and angle to the display. Knowledge of these factors allows us to design interactive systems which exploits it for novel forms of interaction. We explore this in two studies that are based on two real-world scenarios of a departure board and a video player (with subtitles). Our results show that multi-view proxemic systems are accurate and that users find them useful and would use them if they were available.
