9th IFF Science Days: »Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality for Engineering, Testing and Operating Technical Systems« (Magdeburg, Germany, from 2006-06-21 12:00 AM to 2006-06-23 12:00 AM)
A fundamental goal of the 3rd professional conference on Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) at the Fraunhofer IFF is to generate a dialog between users and developers of virtual and expanded reality technologies. The focus will be on the sectors of the automotive industry, mechanical and plant engineering, the process industry, aviation, shipbuilding and medical technology. The excellence network ViVERA supported by the BMBF and the EU project Virthualis will be integrated in the conference.
PIT06 - Perception and Interactive Technologies (Kloster Irsee, Germany, from 2006-06-19 12:00 AM to 2006-06-21 12:00 AM)
The workshop focuses on advanced human-computer interaction including, e.g., mechanisms, architectures, design issues, applications, evaluation and tools. Prototype and product demonstrations will be very welcome. Future interfaces will be endowed with more human-like capabilities. For example, the emotional state of the user will be analysed so as to be able to automatically adapt the dialogue flow to user preferences, state of knowledge and learning success. Strategies in menu selection will be guided by computational models of attention and the analysis of eye movements tracked in various scenarios. Advanced display technologies will make use of real-time high-quality computer graphics and simulation to visualize physical processes in space and time. High-end 3D avatars utilizing attention-based display generation will allow to speed-up processing. Advanced speech technology will make use of adaptive and user-state dependent dialogue strategies. Complex knowledge bases and reasoning capabilities will control ambient devices that automatically adapt to user requirements and communication styles and, in doing so, help reducing the mental load of the user.
