Open House Event at the IMLD

On Thursday, November 20th, we had an Open House Event at the Interactive Media Lab Dresden. The event took place directly after the international tabletop conference (ITS 2014), organized by the IMLD, and combined two exciting scientific talks by Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale and Dr. Miguel Nacenta with demos of our research prototypes. A buffet sponsored by MultiTouch Ltd. supplied our guests with the energy needed. Also, Dr. Tommi Ilmonen, CTO of MultiTouch Ltd., presented the technology behind our interactive multitouch wall and was able to answer questions. We thank MultiTouch Ltd. for sponsoring the event and all our guests for their interest in our research and the valuable, positive feedback.

Promotion Sophie Stellmach

The first PhD student of the Interactive Media Lab Dresden to do so, Sophie Stellmach very successfully defended her dissertation on May 17th. 2013. Congratulations from all of us for this great achievement, Sophie! The topic of the dissertation was “Gaze-Supported Multimodal Interaction”. We were ale to win Prof. Robert Jacob, PhD of Tufts University (USA) as external supervisor. As the promotion was started in Magdeburg, some ceremonial traditions from Mageburg enriched the festivity in Dresden. The photo gallery gives an insight into this memorable day. It was crowned with a party on the banks of the Elbe in the evening, where Sophie also mastered the “real” parts of her defense.
