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.

We are back! See you @ HCI-IS 2019

After a short brake, the Slovenian HCI community is back with the Human-Computer Interaction in Information Society. As always, in October in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

This is the first edition since ACM SIGCHI Chapter Bled Slovenia was established. All you need to know is listed in the CFP available here.

We are waiting for your contribution – full research papers, work in progress, demonstrations – until the end of summer (30.8.2019). The conference takes place on Wednesday, the 9th of October.

See you soon!

Predstavitev plakata z naslovom “The Missing Interface: Micro-Gestures on Augmented Objects”

Povezava do plakata: https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=3312986

Članek je nastal v sodelovanju z raziskovalci iz Utrecht univerze (https://www.uu.nl/en), NARA Inštituta za znanost in tehnologijo (http://www.naist.jp/en/) in Aalto univerze (https://www.aalto.fi/en). Povzetek članka je “Augmenting arbitrary physical objects with digital content leads to the missing interface problem, because those objects were never designed to incorporate such digital content and so they lack a user interface. A review of related work reveals that current approaches fail due to limited detection fidelity and spatial resolution. Our proposal, based on Google Soli’s radar sensing technology, is designed to detect micro-gestures on objects with sub-millimeter precision. Preliminary results with a custom gesture set show that Soli’s core features and traditional machine learning models (Random Forest and Support Vector Machine) do not lead to robust recognition accuracy, and so more advanced techniques should be used instead, possibly incorporating additional sensor features.”

Predstavitev članka “Augmentation not Duplication: Considerations for the Design of Digitally-Augmented Comic Books”

Povezava do članka: https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=3300333

Članek je nastal v sodelovanju z raziskovalci iz Lancaster Univerze (https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/), Univerze v St Andrews (https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/) in Cobourg univerze (https://www.coburg-university.de/) ter creativne industrije. Povzetek članka je: “Digital-augmentation of print-media can provide contextually relevant audio, visual, or haptic content to supplement the static text and images. The design of such augmentation—its medium, quantity, frequency, content, and access technique—can have a significant impact on the reading experience. In the worst case, such as where children are learning to read, the print medium can become a proxy for accessing digital content only, and the textual content is avoided. In this work, we examine how augmented content can change the reader’s behaviour with a comic book. We first report on the usage of a commercially available augmented comic for children, providing evidence that a third of all readers converted to simply viewing the digital media when printed content is duplicated. Second, we explore the design space for digital content augmentation in print media. Third, we report a user study with 136 children that examined the impact of both content length and presentation in a digitally-augmented comic book. From this, we report a series of design guidelines to assist designers and editors in the development of digitally-augmented print media.”

Organizacija delavnice “iHDI – International workshop on Human-Drone Interaction”

So-organizirali smo prvo delavnico v sklopu ACM CHI na temo “human-drone interaction” (http://hdi.famnit.upr.si/) oz. interakcije človek-dron. V zadnjih leti se je uporaba dronov zelo povečala tako v zasebne kot v komercialne namene.

human drone interaction workshop

Izjemno zanimanje je svojevrstno razburljivo in hkrati grozljivo. Droni prinašajo namreč veliko prednosti kot so na primer dostava na oddaljene lokacije, pomoč ljudem s posebnimi potrebami, športnikom, kmetijstvu in reševanju. Hkrati pa se postavlja vprašanje kaj pomeni imeti drone v svojem okolju iz vidika varnosti, zasebnosti in nadzora. Na delavnici, ki je potekala 5. maja – dan po tem, ko je bila z dronom prvič na svetu dostavljena človeška ledvica, smo se dotaknili teh in drugih tem ter zaključili, da samo sodelovajnje z vladami pri odstranjevanju ovir za uporabo dronov in raziskovalci drugih področij (tehnologi, sociologi, fiziki …), lahko premagamo ovire pri uspešni inegraciji dronov v naša okolja.

 

Predstavitev ACM SIGCHI Chapter Bled Slovenia na ACM CHI 2019 konferenci

Na letošnji konferenci ACM CHI 2019 – Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (https://chi2019.acm.org/), ki je premierna konferenca na področju interakcije človek-računalnik smo prvič predstavili ACM SIGCHI Zbor

(Chapter) Bled Slovenija. Zbor je združenje slovenskih raziskolacev in profesiolacev, ki jih zanimajo področja interakcija človek-računalnik, uporabniška izkušnja and uporabniški vmesniki.

HCI skupnost v Sloveniji se povezuje

Slovenska skupnost raziskovalcev na področju Interackcije človek-računalnik se je v zadnjih mesecih formalno združila v ACM SIGCHI Chapter Bled Slovenia in se tako pridružila drugim naprednim državam, ki se zavedajo pomena oblikovanja tehnoloških rešitev po meri uporabnika.

SIGCHI je posebna in hkrati ena največjih interesnih skupin v okviru največjega svetovnega računalniškega združenja ACM (Association of Computing Machinery), ki deluje tudi v slovenskem prostoru (ACM Slovenija). Glavna naloga združenja ACM je promocija in podpora napredku računalništva kot znanosti in poklica. Združenje tudi podeljuje Turingovo nagrado, ki velja za najprestižnejšo nagrado na področju računalništva in informatike.

Slovenski raziskovalci (Institut “Jožef Stefan”Univerza v Ljubljani, Univerza v Mariboru in Univerza na Primorskem) se bodo kot skupnost prvič predstavili javnosti v Glasgowu v Veliki Britaniji na vrhunski mednarodni konferenci ACM CHI.”
