RxD wins best paper award

RxD PhD students Jorgos Coenen and Sandy Claes, under supervision of prof. Andrew Vande Moere, have won the best paper award at the Pervasive Displays conference.

The paper titled “The Concurrent Use of Touch and Mid-Air Gestures or Floor Mat Interaction on a Public Display” investigates a novel approach to simultaneously use the qualities of touch and mid-air gestures or floor mat interaction on a public display. The research demonstrates that although the concurrent use of multiple interaction modalities appeared functionally possible and has the potential to augment a single display with both personal and public functionalities, it is hampered by issues relating to display and interaction blindness, in addition to social discomfort and what they propose to name affordance blindness.
