Keynote speakers for HCI SI will be Peter Knees and Gregor Geršak

Peter Knees is Associate Professor at the Vienna University of Technology, Faculty of Informatics. He is an active member of the Music Information Retrieval research community, reaching out to the related fields of multimedia and text information retrieval, recommender systems, and the digital arts. His research activities center on music search engines and interfaces as well as music recommender systems, and more recently, on smart(er) tools for music creation. He co-authored the book “Music Similarity and Retrieval: An Introduction” and is a contributor of the Digital Humanism initiative.

Gregor Geršak received the Ph.D. degree from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Ljubljana. His research interests include the theory of measurements, precision measurement of magnetic flux density, and pressure and thermometry. His focus is on metrology of biomedical instrumentation with emphasis on devices for non-invasive blood pressure measurement and psychophysiological measurements.

human computer interaction in information society 2019

Human-computer interaction in information society is a conference organized by the Slovenian HCI community. The purpose of the conference is to gather researchers, practitioners and students in the field and offer the opportunity to exchange experiences  and research results, as well as to establish contacts for future cooperation.

This year’s fourth reincarnation of the conference is, for the first time, organized by the newly established SIGCHI Chapter ACM Chapter Bled, which is partly a result previous
conferences. The growth of the HCI community in the region is also witnessed by the doubled number of contributions coming from all major higher education institutions in Slovenia and abroad.

The topics covered by the conference range from the more established ones, such as usability testing, visualization and design of graphical user interfaces to virtual and augmented reality, user interfaces in healthcare, automotive industry, arts and e-learning.

You can view the full proceedings and some photos of the event.

Title: Mobile Interruptibility Management: The Role of Social Roles

Abstract: As we go about our daily lives we enact different social roles, with work and private roles being the most prominent. The traditional role boundaries have been shattered with the introduction of mobile communication devices – a work-related email might arrive during a family dinner, while a private chat message might buzz in a business meeting. While role blurring introduced with mobile phones might increase stress due to role conflict, it can also simplify task handling and provide the necessary flexibility (e.g. an option to work from home). In this talk I will present a line of research on mobile interruptiblity with a particular focus on the impact of social roles on notification handling. We will see how mobile device usage varies with the currently enacted social role, as well as how preferences for notification handling vary among individuals. Finally, I will discuss our vision of a system that matches the desired role boundary handling with the way notifications are managed on mobile devices.

Bio: Veljko Pejovic is an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. His interests include mobile computing, HCI, resource-efficient computing, and the interaction of technology and society. His work on modelling user movement and communication behavior from mobile call records won the 2013 Orange D4D Challenge, while his work on interruptibility modelling resulted in the best paper nomination at the ACM UbiComp’14 conference.
