On May 14, 2018 Ulrich von Zadow successfully defended his dissertation as part of the Interactive Media Lab Dresden. Congratulations from all of us, Ulrich!
The topic of his dissertation was “Personalized Interaction with High-Resolution Wall Displays” and addresses the localization of multiple users in front of wall-sized displays, the according adaptation of user interfaces, and the analysis of user behavior. We are happy that Olivier Chapuis from the university Paris-Sud, France agreed to act as external reviewer of his thesis. After Ulrich’s great talk and successful discussion of the work, the event was celebrated at a restaurant in Dresden’s city center. A small photo gallery provides a view into this special day.
Ulrike Kister defended her dissertation on May 8, 2018 as another very successful PhD student of the Interactive Media Lab Dresden. Her topic Interactive Visualization Lenses addresses the support of data exploration for multiple users at wall-sized displays with the help of configurable analysis tools. She combines aspects of the two research fields human-computer interaction and information visualization. We are very happy that Petra Isenberg from AVIZ research group (Inria) agreed to act as external reviewer for this thesis. After her great defense, the entire Interactive Media Lab and guests celebrated at a nice restaurant near the Loschwitz Bridge. Some impressions of the great day can be found in our small photo gallery.
We congratulate Ulrike Kister on her great dissertation and wish her all the best for her future endeavors.
With Martin Spindler another PhD student of the Interactive Media Lab Dresden very successfully defended his dissertation on February 12, 2018. Congratulations from all of us on this impressive achievement, Martin! The topic of the dissertation was “Tangible Displays”, which comprises, among others, six (!) full papers and one journal article. We were able to win Prof. Dr. Jürgen Steimle of Saarland University as external supervisor. As the PhD was started in Magdeburg, some ceremonial traditions from Magdeburg enriched the festivity in Dresden. Afterwards, Martins success was celebrated in a restaurant at the campus of Technische Universität Dresden.
