Researchers present their work at a prestigious global conference
Researchers from Lancaster University demonstrated their work at a prestigious international computer science conference.
Experts from the University’s School of Computing and Communications and the Lancaster Institute for Contemporary Arts accepted three papers and one photo at the 2021 ACM Designing Interactive Systems, or DIS 2021 conference.
This year’s theme for the virtual conference, which took place from June 28e and July 2sd, was “Nowhere and everywhere”.
Professor Corina Sas, Assistant Dean for Research Improvement at Lancaster University’s Faculty of Science and Technology, and Head of the Ubiquitous Systems Research Group at Lancaster University, said:
“Once again, we are proud of our consistently high performance at the ACM DIS conference. This has been a particularly difficult year for academia, and maintaining our position as one of the best human-machine interactions research departments in the world has not been trivial. Our DIS 2021 papers showcase new body-centered design approaches applied to digital mental health and wellness, value-based methods, and those for integrating digital systems into physical places.
Lancaster’s articles at DIS 2021 include:
Article: Explore custom vibrotactile and thermal models for effect regulation.
Muhammad Umair, Corina Sas, Niaz Chalabianloo and Cem Ersoy.
Article: Sensory probes: an exploratory design research method for human-food interaction.
