SACHI at AVI 2014: What to See

Members of SACHI are presenting a number of papers and other works at this year’s AVI 2014 the International Working Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces May 27 – 30, 2014 – Como, Italy.
“Started in Rome in 1992, AVI has become a biannual appointment for a wide international community of experts with a broad range of backgrounds. Through more than two decades, the Conference has contributed to the progress of Human-Computer Interaction, offering a forum to present and disseminate new technological results, new paradigms and new visions for interaction and interfaces. AVI 2014 offers a strong scientific program that provides an articulated picture of the most challenging and innovative directions in interface design, technology, and applications. World leading researchers from industry and academia will present their work. 25 different countries are represented in 3 workshops, 32 long papers, 17 short papers, 29 posters, and 14 hands-on demos.”
