  • When: 5th March 2013 13:00 - 14:00
  • Where: Cole 1.33a
  • Format: Seminar

Abstract:

Modern computer workstation setups regularly include multiple displays in various configurations. With such multi-monitor or multi-display setups we have reached a stage where we have more display real-estate available than we are able to comfortably attend to. This talk will present the results of an exploration of techniques for visualising display changes in multi-display environments. Apart from four subtle gaze-dependent techniques for visualising change on unattended displays, it will cover the technology used to enable quick and cost-effective deployment to workstations. An evaluation of the technology as well as the techniques themselves will be presented as well. The talk will conclude with a brief discussion on the challenges in evaluating subtle interaction techniques.

About Jakub:
Jakub Dostal is currently studying for his Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of St Andrews in the SACHI research group with Professor Aaron Quigley and his second supervisor Dr Per Ola Kristensson. His SICSA supervisor is Professor Stephen Brewster in the University of Glasgow. Jakub’s research is mainly in the area of novel interaction in ubiquitous computing environments. His work ranges from subtle interaction techniques in multi-display environments to distance-based interaction and interaction with multiscopic displays.
