Page history last edited by PBworks 13 years, 3 months ago





Florian 'Floyd' Mueller


Floyd's current interest is in interfaces that deliberately require intense physical effort to facilitate social connectedness between remote participants. He has designed exemplary systems under this theme such as Breakout for Two, Remote Impact (together with Stefan Agamanolis), Airhockey over a Distance, Push’N’Pull, Jogging the Distance and Table Tennis for Three.


Please call me Floyd.





Stefan Agamanolis


Stefan was a founding research director at Media Lab Europe, Dublin, Ireland. There he led the Human Connectedness group, an interdisciplinary team that explored the future of human relationships as mediated by technology. He worked with Floyd on an exertion interface game called Breakout for Two. Currently he is Chief Executive of Distance Lab, a new hybrid academic/industry research laboratory for distance-reducing technologies that he developed in Scotland.


Please call me Stefan.





Anton Nijholt


Anton is professor at the Human Media Interaction research group of the University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands. His main interests are ambient intelligence, multimodal interaction, virtual reality and entertainment computing. Visit: http://hmi.cs.utwente.nl/~anijholt








Raphael Wimmer



Raphael is a PhD student in the Media Informatics Group at the University of Munich. He does some research on capacitive sensing for HCI (see http://www.capsense.org) and novel user interaction devices. Currently he works on Wiimote tracking and systematically exploring the future of interaction devices.


CapSense for Exertion Interfaces




Nadia Bianchi-Berthouze


Nadia is a lecturer in the UCL Interaction Center (UCLIC) at the University College London. Her research focuses on creating technology that can sense the affective state of its user and use that information to tailor the interaction process. She is particularly interested in posture and body movement as a channel to recognize and affect the user experience. Visit : http://www.cs.ucl.ac.uk/staff/n.berthouze/






Wendy Powell


Wendy is a PhD student in the Advanced Interactive Realities Research Group at the University of Portsmouth in the UK. She is currently investigating the manipulation of optic flow to increase walk speed in Virtual Rehabilitation, and the user-interface interactions in treadmill mediated virtual reality.













Berry Eggen

Berry is full professor and vice-dean of the department of Industrial Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Within this department he is heading the ‘User Centered Engineering’ research group. His main interest is the design of intelligent systems, products and related services. Together with Tilde Bekker and others he conducts research in the area of ambient persuasion including the work on exertion interfaces for children that will be presented at the workshop.

Tilde Bekker

Tilde is an assistant professor in the the ‘User Centered Engineering’ research group at the department of Industrial Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Her main interests are designing products for children, e.g. designing for physical play, asessing quality of design methods, and design of persuasive technology.

Yolanda Rankin

Yolanda is a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL USA. Her research interests encompass a broad range, including Human Computer Interaction, Game Design and Computer Science Education. One aspect of Yolanda's work involves the design and evaluation of physically interactive game interfaces that offer a challenging yet fun alternative to exercise.





Vaughan Powell


Vaughan is a PhD student in the Advanced Interactive Realities Research Group at the University of Portsmouth in the UK. His main area of interest is the application of Virtual Reality to sport and rehabilitation. His current work involves a motion-tracking interface to a Virtual Environment for the rehabilitation of restricted shoulder motion.





Andrea Taylor


Andrea is a researcher at Distance Lab, Scotland. She is currently investigating how telehealth can improve quality of life and independence for people with chronic diseases. And, support technologies for informal carers. She is particularly interested in input devices which have a physical form more tightly coupled to the screen display.







Daniel Spelmezan


Daniel is a doctoral student at the Media Computing Group at RWTH Aachen University. Currently, he is interested in wearable computing and novel applications for sports training.







Lori Malatesta




Lori is a PhD candidate at the Image, Video and Multimedia Lab of the National Technical University of Athens. Her work focuses on computational models of emotion, affective interaction and non-verbal behaviour in virtual environments.









Yuichi Fujiki




Yuichi is a Ph.D. student in University of Houston, TX, USA. His research topic is how to fight obesity using computer science technology. Obesity is a serious problem in the world, especially in U.S. The key is to create simple/motivating/ubiquitous interface that can change daily activity of people. In his whole Ph.D. work, he is going to pursue creating novel applications that work on small devices which people will carry around with them everyday (like PDA or iPhone).






Greg Dunn



    Greg Dunn is a PhD student at Philips Research, in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. His research work focuses on the relation between personality and music preference. But he is also a keen game player, and enjoys participating in testing the game applications developed by his colleagues.
