CHI 2003... April 5-10 in Ft. Lauderdale
Computing has moved beyond the desktop. Communication and computing
devices are big and small, sleek and pervasive. User interactions no
longer need to be limited to mouse and keyboard. Today's computing
landscape consists of a wide array of devices, services, and interaction
mechanisms for end users. Yet, there is room for improvement in
existing hardware, applications, and designs. At CHI 2003 you have
the opportunity to explore and exchange ideas with many of the premier
innovators and designers of future handheld, mobile, and pervasive
devices, applications and services. This year's conference offers 36
full or half-day tutorials. A small sample of this year's mobile and
pervasive computing presentations include:
Scott Weiss, author of Handheld Usability, and Richard Martin presents
user-centered design principles for handheld product design in Handheld
Usability: Design, Prototyping, & Usability for Mobile Devices.
Didier Chincholle, an interaction designer from Ericsson Research
presents fundamental principles and offers tips and techniques for
designing highly usable interfaces for mobile services in Wireless
Service Usability & Design.
Trevor Darrell, head of the Vision Interface group at the MIT AI Lab
and award-winning creator of interactive vision-based interfaces
presents technical overview of the use of visual image of a human
user for applications with 'perceptive context' and discusses social
and safety issues with this technology in Vision-based User Interfaces
for Pervasive Computing.
Mark Billinghurst, director of the Human Interface Technology (HIT) Lab
in New Zealand presents an An Introduction to Augmented Reality
with examples of use in the collaborative, mobile, and user interaction
