Opening Keynote (Steven Feiner)

Getting Where We’re Going: Where Mobility May Take Us
Steven Feiner, Columbia University
Time: Wed 09:30 - 10:30 | Location: Große Aula

Mobile computing has been with us for decades, from the earliest days of handheld and wearable computers, PDAs, and mobile phones. While much research today is based on smartphones and tablets, we may all soon be glass(y)-eyed and smart-wristed. So, what’s next? This talk will present some thoughts about where mobile computing, and hence mobile HCI, is headed, illustrated in part by work done by Columbia’s Computer Graphics and User Interfaces Lab. I will discuss possibilities for display, sensing, and interaction in, on, and around the user, others, and the environment.

Steven Feiner is Professor of Computer Science at Columbia University, where he directs the Computer Graphics and User Interfaces Lab, and co-directs the Columbia Vision and Graphics Center. He received a PhD in Computer Science from Brown, and his research interests include human–computer interaction, augmented reality and virtual environments, 3D user interfaces, knowledge-based design of graphics and multimedia, mobile and wearable computing, computer games, and information visualization. His lab created the first outdoor mobile augmented reality system using a see-through display in 1996, and has pioneered experimental applications of augmented reality to fields such as tourism, journalism, maintenance, and construction. Prof. Feiner is coauthor of Computer Graphics: Principles and Practice, received an ONR Young Investigator Award, and was elected to the CHI Academy. Together with his students, he has won the ACM UIST Lasting Impact Award and best paper awards at ACM UIST, ACM CHI, ACM VRST, and IEEE ISMAR.
