Best Paper Award at EuroVA 2017

The joint work of Martin Röhlig, me, Christoph Schmidt, Heidrun Schumann, and Oliver Stachs regarding visual analytics in the field of ophthalmology was last week presented at EuroVA in Barcelona. In addition, the paper was awarded with the Best Paper Award of EuroVA 2017. Thanks to all folks in Rostock for the fruitful collaboration.

Two Papers at ACHI 2017 and Best Paper Award

This year’s ACHI, the International Conference on Advances in Computer-Human Interactions, featured two papers of different current research topics of my group. Linda and Tabea presented their preliminary results in analyzing the requirements of supervisors when visualizing work load and emotion data in air traffic control. Our friends from the media psychology at Chemnitz University of Technology presented their joint user study on the effectiveness of different hierarchy visualization techniques. In addition, this paper actually won the Best Paper Award of the conference.

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.
