Crossworlds @ Studentische Medientage Chemnitz

On April 25th and 26th the 10th Studentische Medientage took place at the new auditorium building (NHG) at Technische Universität Chemnitz. In accordance with this year’s theme ‘Get Connected!’ numerous communication professionals discussed the importance of networking in lectures and workshops.

Once again the CrossWorlds team supported the conference by displaying their research projects. Amongst other examples, the second prototype table platform of Kalja Kanellopoulos and Michael Storz, presenting a card game and a game of Pong, was open to public experimentation. Currently, their second table is aboard the ship ‘MS Wissenschaft’ and travels across the rivers of Germany. Furthermore, Michael Heidt preseted a join
t human-computer exploration device and Anke Tallig tested the detection capabilities of non-verbal communication behavior by her new robot-guide installation.

And in addition to the professional audiences, the mentoring program ‘Girl’s Tandem’ visited the symposium and interacted with the various exhibitions from CrossWorlds.

The ‘Studentischen Medientage‘ are developed and organized solely by students of the Institute for Media Research at the Technische Universität Chemnitz but nevertheless established itself as a networking platform for other students and media professionals across Germany. This annual conference, established in 2005, meanwhile attracts more than 500 visitors from science and practice, in order to discuss media-relevant developments, new media perspectives and ideas.

 

 

Cooperation Day – “Business meets Science”

On September 5th the IBS Cooperation Day – “Business meets Science” took place at the IBS Foundation in Laubusch / Lusatia in Germany which was founded to improve the computer science collaboration in Saxony and across it’s country borders. The event chaired by Prof. Hardt of the Computer Engineering department in Chemnitz took place in a reworked coal production management building. Anke Tallig and Kai-Uwe Martin of our research training group presented the general concept of “CrossWorlds” and the project “Mediator – Ambassador in mixed reality” to an interested audience of scientific colleagues and representatives of companies and politics, most notably Saxony’s prime minister Stanislaw Tillich who showed a special interest in the interdisciplinary aspect.

Presentation of CrossWorlds

Through conversation with other researchers, e. g. the robotics team of Prof. Böhme of Dresden University of Applied Sciences that works in areas like environment modeling, self-localization, and person perception and
various other scientists our different approaches to human machine interaction were analyzed. Chances and risks of the current technologies and future potential of our work were discussed and personal connections
established.

 

HCI International 2013, Las Vegas, July 21–26

 

This July the CrossWorlds fellows Anke Tallig, Michael Heidt and Michael Storz presented their paper submissions at the HCI International 2013 Conference in Las Vegas. With its two different thematic areas and nine affiliated conferences the conference had a very broad scope on many different aspects of human computer interaction. The large amount of submissions (1666 Papers and 303 Posters) gave attendees the opportunity to choose between many parallel sessions.
