Wed, June 7: Tutorials

As it has become customary for PerDis, we will again offer a two in-depth tutorials on the first day of the symposium. The tutorials will take place on June 7. Attendace is included in your registration fee.

Public Display Analytics
Dr. Julie R. Williamson (Glasgow University, UK), Mateusz Mikusz (Lancaster University, UK), and Ivan Elhart (USI Lugano, CH)

This tutorial will introduce students to the general field of digital signage analytics and explore ways to collect, process, and understand usage data of public display installations. It will cover data collected both via usage logs and cameras (visual analytics). It features both a theoretical, lecture-style part (Part 1), as well as a hands-on lab (Part 2) where students will experience practical ways to analyse public display usage data (using Jupyter). Students should bring their own laptops, though we can also provide laptops if needed (please contact ivan.elhart@usi.ch at least one week in advance).

Julie Williamson is a lecturer in HCI at the University of Glasgow. Julie is part of the Glasgow Interactive Systems Group (GIST), leading the Public and Performative Interaction theme within GIST. Her research focuses on how people use technology in public spaces and how interactive technologies can be designed given the "performative" aspects of using technology in public. Her current research looks at playful interfaces for public spaces the use embedded interaction, large format displays, and whole body input.

Mateusz Mikusz is a third-year PhD student in Computer Science and Research Associate at Lancaster University. His research focuses on pervasive analytics, mainly in the context of digital signage and pervasive display networks. Prior to his PhD studies, Mateusz graduated from the University of Stuttgart. Throughout his studies, he has been involved in a number of projects including PD-NET and RECALL, and is now working on PETRAS.


Ivan Elhart is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Faculty of Informatics at the University of Lugano (USI), Switzerland. Ivan received a master degree (Diploma) in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, in 2006, a master degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of New Hampshire, USA, in 2009, and his PhD (Dr. sc.) from the University of Lugano (USI), in 2015. His research interests are in the area of pervasive public display systems, in particular opportunities for distributed application and content scheduling.

Urban Information Visualization
Prof. Florian Alt (LMU, Germany) and Jorgos Coenen (KU Leuven, BE)

Smart cities start with smart citizens. Increasingly, efforts are made to open up urban data and disclose it to the general public. However, open data is only a first step. This tutorial focusses on encountering, interpreting, and discussing this information in the city. The tutorial will start with a general introduction to information visualization (Part 1 by Prof. Florian Alt) and continue with a deeper dive into visualizing and interacting with data in public and urban spaces (Part 2 by Jorgos Coenen). The second session will include a brief theoretical part and a hands-on part where participants will brainstorm in groups about bringing specific data sets to urban contexts.

Florian Alt holds a full-time appointment as an assistant professor in the group for media informatics (Medieninformatik) at LMU in Munich, Germany. Florian is doing research at the crossroads of ubiquitous computing and HCI. His particular research interests are on open pervasive displays, cognitive effects of interaction, 3D displays, and usable security.

Jorgos Coenen is a PhD student in the Research[x]Design group at the Department of Architecture of KU Leuven, working with Prof. Andrew Vande Moere. Jorgos has a background in Communication and Media Design, with a focus on interaction design. His research interests include interaction in public space and information visualization, aiming to bring data regarding physical activity to public space in engaging, interactive and motivating ways.


Thu, June 8: Keynote "Start thinking in 3D!"

Prof. Michael Bronstein
USI Lugano, CH, and Tel Aviv University, IL

Michael Bronstein is an associate professor of Informatics at USI Lugano in Switzerland, associate professor of Applied Mathematics at Tel Aviv University in Israel, and a Principal Engineer at the Intel Perceptual Computing group. Michael got his Ph.D. with distinction in Computer Science from the Technion in 2007. He has previously held visiting appointments at Politecnico di Milano, Stanford, INRIA, Technion, and University of Verona. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, alumnus of the Technion Excellence Program and the Academy of Achievement, ACM Distinguished Speaker, and a member of the Young Academy of Europe. His research appeared in the international media such as CNN and was recognized by numerous prestigious awards, including several best paper awards, the Hershel Rich Innovation Award (2003), three ERC grants (Starting Grant 2012, Proof of Concept Grant 2016, and Consolidator Grant 2016), Google Faculty Research Award (2016), Radcliffe Fellowship from the Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University (2017), and Rudolf Diesel Industrial Fellowship from TU Munich (2017). In 2014, he was selected as a Young Scientist by the World Economic Forum, an honor bestowed on forty world's leading scientists under the age of forty. He was a guest speaker at the World Economic Forum meeting in Dalian, China in 2015. Michael is the author of the first book on deformable 3D shape analysis, editor of four books, over 100 papers in top scientific journals and conferences, and inventor of over 20 granted patents. He has chaired over a dozen of conferences and workshops in his field, and has served as area chair at ECCV 2016 and ICCV 2017 and as associate editor of the Computer Vision and Image Understanding journal. He has given over 70 invited and keynote talks during his career. Besides academic work, Michael is actively involved in the industry. He has co-founded and served in leading technical and management positions at several startup companies, including Invision, an Israeli startup developing 3D sensing technology acquired by Intel in 2012. This technology can now be found in new generation of computers from all the major brands.
