Student Works (Undergraduate, Postgraduate, and PhD): Perceptive Informatics – Visualisation, Interactive Media, User-Experience

Student Works (Undergraduate, Postgraduate, and PhD): Perceptive Informatics – Visualisation, Interactive Media, User-Experience
Author: System Administrator – Published 2016-08-19 14:10 – ( Reads)

I am actively searching for students interested in several aspects of visualization and interactive media on undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctorate level. As I am in favor for cross-disciplinary work, I am searching for students with any background: computer science, humanities, business, human-computer interaction, or design. The most important is a drive to gain more understanding in perceptive informatics: visualization, interaction, human perception and content creation from a business, technical, and human perspective.
PROJECT CONTEXT
Perceptive and interactive computation deals with computational methods of understanding the human mind, and how today’s technology supports humans in understanding and interacting in their daily lives through computational interfaces. Visualization, thus the process of representing information and data graphically and interacting with these representations is the foundation for human understanding. Within the scope of this project, you can choose a different perspective and focus on perceptive and interactive computation, such as exploring visualization and computer vision techniques, investigation of human centered aspects such as user experience, smart service designs in intelligent environments or exploration of artificial intelligence methods to design intelligent systems. The aim is to apply these technologies in particular application domains such as e.g. financial industries, sports analysis, intelligent environments, human behavior modeling, media and entertainment industries, or Big Data applications.

RESEARCH DIRECTIONS
This project is a broad call for students with interest in the fascinating domain of visualization, computer vision, human-computer interaction, understanding the human mind, and user-experience. There are many pathways through the research project, which emphasize different aspects of perceptive computation ranging from simple virtual reality and augmented reality up to sophisticating interactive graphics in interactive Big Data visualizations and the development of smart interaction designs. The application areas for perceptive computation are broad, and range from arts & entertainment, computational biology, health care, financial and business services, sports, and medicine.
A few exemplary research directions include:
Big Data, information, and knowledge visualization;
Visualization and interactive visualization across industries;
Intelligent Big Data analysis and visualization;
Analysis and handling of biofeedback data;
Understanding of human perception and cognition;
Intelligent user-interfaces, and personalization;·
Scientific visualization across domains;
Human behavior recognition and modeling;
User-Experience and interaction design;
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
This rather general calls shall address students with interest in the fascinating domain of visualization, human experience studies, and latest visualization equipment. Students will be provided with the latest technologies, as e.g. the Curtin’s Hub for Immersive Visualisation and eResearch (HIVE), 3D virtual and augmented glasses, brain-interfaces, eye trackers, or biofeedback sensors to conduct their research.

Managing and Leading Creative Universities – Foundations of Successful Science Management, Springer-Verlag, 20016: Leadership and management and leading universities, faculties, departments, or research laboratories undergoes a tremendous change during recent years. Universities and its researchers are more and more under pressure to produce scientific results and commercial viable outputs. Academic freedom and science as long-term investment for society and business vanish more and more, and put pressure on scientists to rise funding, cope with external stakeholders or job uncertainties, and internationalization strategies. The scope of this book is to discuss the changes, and especially emphasize the importance of universities as grassroots place for many activities.

Managing and Leading Creative Universities – Foundations of Successful Science Management

to be published in 2016, beginning of 2017

Leadership and management and leading universities, faculties, departments, or research laboratories undergoes a tremendous change during recent years. Universities and its researchers are more and more under pressure to produce scientific results and commercial viable outputs. Academic freedom and science as long-term investment for society and business vanish more and more, and put pressure on scientists to rise funding, cope with external stakeholders or job uncertainties, and internationalization strategies. The scope of this book is to discuss the changes, and especially emphasize the importance of universities as grassroots place for many activities. The book focuses on concepts, frameworks, and theories to derive policy guidelines for people involved in university management. For scientists the book assists in developing their careers and gain insights in university management. The book especially focuses on how to lead creative universities, and shall shade light on successful criteria for successful science management.

Target Audience

The target audience is rather large for this type of book. The target audience includes those in management positions as well as those aspiring to leadership in universities seeking to be creative in addressing future needs and interests. This would span the globe and has no regional boundaries. The target audience shall also include researchers addressing academic research around university administrative sciences, especial social sciences. For these the book would act as reference work in their teaching curricular. The reader should gain insights into theoretical, practical work, and documentation about experience of which they could then more intelligently choose their own research and scientific path to recognize opportunities as well as deal more efficiently with challenges.

NEWS

Media Convergence happens on many levels and each of them implicates specific challenges and priorities. Within the scope of this book, we focus on end-to-end convergence on various levels: managerial, information systems, and end-consumers level. The book will especially shed light into the complexity of the topic and act as a reference book and educational resource in this field. The implementations of convergence strategies can only succeed when they take into account the expectations and aspirations of every actor with a stake in the enterprise, including content producers. Managers unanimously agree on the importance of human resources management within the implementation process. This consideration implies that convergence is more than an economic opportunity and needs to be understood as well as a focus of editorial strategy. Convergence is often discussed at a rhetorical and political level. But how does convergence actually happen, and does convergence lead to divergence? Media industry understands convergence in ways that differ from the perceptions of consumers, who are clearly diverging in the ways they consume media. Media managers are faced with the need to satisfy users’ expectations and also undertake convergence as an industrial strategy to achieve economies of scope & scale. Another challenge lies in the development of information systems in media industries that support convergence. Do these also lead to divergence? Does blurring the boundaries between the various distribution platforms let media diverge from the consumer’s point of view? This book will encourage an active discussion around this theme, taking multiple viewpoints into account: a content creator perspective (journalistic or artistic), an information system perspective, the consumer’s expectations, management and technological challenges, as well as market dynamics. In conclusion, can all the challenges of convergence be solved, or does convergence lead to further divergence.Image
