At this year’s ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI), our group presents nine accepted contributions – 1 full paper, 2 Late Breaking Work articles, 2 demonstrations, 1 co-organized workshop and 3 workshop contributions. The ACM CHI is the biggest and most important conference in the field of human-computer interaction and will take place in Montreal, Canada from April 21 to 26, 2018. We are particularly pleased about the honorable mention award (top 5%) for our full paper When David Meets Goliath: Combining Smartwatches with a Large Vertical Display for Visual Data Exploration. The paper is the result of a cooperation from Tom Horak and Raimund Dachselt with Karthik Badam and Niklas Elmqvist from the University of Maryland. The focus of the work is the combination of smartwatches and large interactive displays for data analysis. We will also present the corresponding prototype of this work in an accompanying CHI Interactivity demonstration.

Our two Late Breaking Work articles ARCord: Visually Augmented Interactive Cords for Mobile Interaction and DebugAR: Mixed Dimensional Displays for Immersive Debugging of Distributed Systems (in cooperation with the CGV lab at TU Dresden as well as the MPI SWS in Kaiserslautern) will present our latest research work. Furthermore, with the CHI interactivity Demonstrating Reality-Based Information Retrieval, we will showcase the prototype of our full paper Here and Now: Reality-based Information Retrieval, which will be presented at the ACM Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval (CHIIR) in March.

In addition, we co-organize the CHI workshop Data Visualization on Mobile Devices (MobileVis ’18), where we will also present the work Investigating Link Attributes of Graph Visualizations in Mobile Augmented Reality and Hierarchical Graphs on Mobile Devices: A Lane-based Approach. Finally, with our article The Future Role of Visual Feedback for Unobtrusive eTextile Interfaces we contribute to the CHI workshop (Un)Acceptable!?! — Re-thinking the Social Acceptability of Emerging Technologies.
