Special Track “Cognitive Processes and HCI Design” at ACHI 2017

It is my pleasure to announce, that I will host a special track at next year’s ACHI, the tenth International Conference on Advances in Computer-Human Interactions, in March 2017. The special track will concentrate on the interdisciplinary link between interface design and cognitive processes, ideally illuminated from both sides. The deadline for submissions is just one month away, January 15. For more information, have a look at the track’s cheat sheet 😉 or just drop me a line. See you soon in sunny Nice.

New Positions – New Possibilities – New Challenges

I am happy to announce, that from the first of October on I am Visiting Professor, concentrating on Human-centered Data Analytics at Heidrun Schumann’s Computer Graphics Group. At the same time, I am still supervising my remaining projects and PhD students at my Visual Computing Laboratory in Chemnitz and I am looking forward to new challenges as Senior IT project manager at the German Federal State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

In summary: Everything is new and still stays the same.

Visit by Sheelagh Carpendale

workshop-sheelagh At the beginning of this week, Prof. Sheelagh Carpendale visited our group for two exciting and productive days. We enjoyed one of her famous “Sketching Visualizations” sessions, where even colleagues from Dresden joined, and intensive discussions about ongoing and future research projects of both sides, also stimulated by her talk about “Interacting Information through Visualization”. Fortunately, there was even time to visit the Christmas Market and chat through the evening with a warm drink.

Best Paper Award at HUSO 2015

huso2015Linda Pfeiffer recently presented our first findings about how air traffic controllers mentally represent their air space and traffic at the International Conference on Human and Social Analytics in Malta. The joint work of computer scientists and media psychologists is part of the MACeLot project and won the Best Paper Award at HUSO. Our part of the project is to rethink the visual interface of the air traffic controllers in close collaboration with the German ATC company DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH.
