BCNM at UIST 2019

The ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST) is the premier forum for innovations in human-computer interfaces. Sponsored by ACM special interest groups on computer-human interaction (SIGCHI) and computer graphics (SIGGRAPH), UIST brings together people from diverse areas including graphical & web user interfaces, tangible & ubiquitous computing, virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, new input & output devices, and CSCW.

Our very own Björn Hartmann and Eric Paulos presented their latest research at the program.

In the technical paper session of Augmented and Mixed Reality, Björn was a co-author with Balasaravanan Thoravi Kumaravel (University of California, Berkeley & Autodesk Research), Fraser Anderson (Autodesk Research), George Fitzmaurice (Autodesk Research), and Tovi Grossman (University of Toronto & Autodesk Research) on "Loki: Facilitating Remote Instruction of Physical Tasks Using Bi-Directional Mixed-Reality Telepresence." In the session on Sensing, Björn presented "LabelAR: A Spatial Guidance Interface for Fast Computer Vision Image Collection" with Michael Laielli (University of California, Berkeley), James Smith (University of California, Berkeley), Giscard Biamby (University of California, Berkeley), and Trevor Darrell (University of California, Berkeley).

Eric presented "Turn-by-Wire: Computationally Mediated Physical Fabrication," co-authored with Rundong Tian (University of California, Berkeley & Siemens Corporate Technology), Vedant Saran (University of California, Berkeley), Mareike Kritzler (Siemens Corporate Technology), and Florian Michahelles (Siemens Corporate Technology).
