    Design of Interactive Multimodal Media Systems

Course Organizer(s):



    This course is intended for attendees involved in design of interactive media and applications for emerging computer-display technologies. Attendees should be familiar with the basics of computer graphics and interactive media, but do not need any particular technical background.

    The theory and practice of multimodal interaction design in a multidisciplinary setting. The cognitive science of sensory processing (vision, hearing, haptics) in scene understanding and interaction, including attention, change blindness, haptics, ventriloquism, and space constancy. Enhanced iterative design for integration of visual display design, haptic devices, and sonified and integrated visual/auditory environments including virtual environments, visualization systems, and community and performance spaces.

    How traditional HCI methodologies augmented with theories and experimental findings from cognitive science address challenges posed by multimodal interaction using vision, haptics, and sound in conventional and immersive computer graphics and visualization environments.
