We have just received exciting news from CHI 2011. Our “Facet-Streams” paper has been selected as one of the top 5% of papers and notes at CHI 2011 and has received an “honorable mention” award. Let me use this opportunity to thank our collaborators and all involved students again for their part in this great outcome. We feel proud and honored to be highlighted so prominently at CHI 2011!
We are proud to announce that our group has been very successful in submissions to this year’s CHI conference: At CHI 2011 in Vancouver BC in May 2011, we will present: two full papers, one entry to the student research competition, and two workshop papers to the CHI workshop on Distributed User Interfaces (DUI 2011).
The scope of our contributions has been particularly broad this year, ranging from Facet-Streams (a tabletop system for collaborative search designed and developed together with Microsoft Research Cambridge) or API usability evaluation with concept maps to cognitive studies about the effect of visual grids on memory. One of the accepted papers for DUI is the result of a cooperation with our colleagues from the Media Interaction Lab at Hagenberg, Austria. Some of the papers and videos are already available on our publications page.
If you would like to meet the authors, all of them (Jens Gerken, Hans-Christian Jetter, Svenja Leifert, Harald Reiterer, Michael Zöllner) will be attending CHI.
See you in Vancouver!
