PERIODE 4, 2016/2017, timeslot A, 7.5 ECTS [CS site | OSIRIS]
INFOMMOB: Mobile Interaction

Lecturer: Wolfgang Hürst (WWW, Email)

Abstract: Mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets, have become as powerful as traditional computers, often replacing them for various tasks. Yet, interacting with them remains challenging due to issues such as limiting form factor, mobile context, etc. On the other hand, it is exactly this form factor, context, and other characteristics of mobiles that provide us with new and exciting opportunities for alternative usages. Examples range from innovative mobile games, to mobile AR (augmented reality) applications. In this course, we will have a closer look at standard interaction with mobiles (e.g., via touch screen; including potential issues as well as opportunities), address new approaches, and look into related current and future research - including wearable devices (e.g., head mounted displays, such as Google Glass, wristbands and smart watches, such as the Apple Watch). Concrete application domains that we will cover include mobile gaming and mobile video. For more information about content, procedure, and formal issues please refer to the description page.
