Together - Work - Experience

03.09.2015

Conference ‘Mensch und Computer 2015’

“Gemeinsam - Arbeit - Erleben” (Together - Work - Experience), that’s the motto of this year’s conference on “Mensch und Computer” which is taking place in Stuttgart from 6th until 9th of September. Here, researchers present new developments from the field of electronic media and digital communication, discuss ideas, and reflect on transformations. A special focus lies on the many challenges in the work life of today and tomorrow.

The conference is conjointly hosted by the University of Stuttgart, the Media University or Stuttgart (HdM) and by the Fraunhofer IAO and is actively supported by the specialist field of “Mensch und Computer” of the “Gesellschaft für Informatik” as well as the “Usability Professionals” and by the Informatics Centre INFOS of the University of Stuttgart.

Yvonne Rogers will be giving the opening keynote about “User-less or User-full Interfaces?”, which takes place on Monday, September 7th, at 9am in Pfaffenwaldring 57 (HS 57.03). The closing keynote will be held on September 9th, at 11am, by Florian Michahelles from Siemens Corporate Technology on “Interaction with the Internet of Things” (Pfaffenwaldring 47, HS 47.01).

Media representatives are welcome to join all events. Further information and the program can be found at: http://muc2015.mensch-und-computer.de/

Electronic media and digital communication are integral parts of today’s everyday life. Computer technology is changing our lives. Software is creating new experiences.
Information systems allow new forms of work. A lot of what is self-evident today would not be possible without modern information and communication technologies. Work enjoyment, but also frustration, is often rooted in the computers we work with.

Designers of digital technologies have a big design space at their disposal, with which they directly affect individuals’ lives. They determine the implementation of systems: what’s feasible, what isn’t, what’s easy, what’s complicated. Hence, designers and developers have great responsibility and they are aware of the consequences of their doing.

Conference with Interaction

In this sense, the conference “Mensch und Computer 2015” presents innovative solutions and new methods for shaping the areas of our work life and how we will work in the future with enjoyment. Many ideas, topics, and projects in the field of Human-Computer Interaction, Usability, and User Experience provide inspirations and the basis for exciting discussions.

With a versatile program Human-Computer Interaction can be experienced, which is essential for understanding new ideas. The conference chairs Dr. Albrecht Schmidt (University of Stuttgart), Prof. Dr. Michael Burmester (HdM) and apl. Prof. Dr. Anette Weisbecker (Fraunhofer IAO) highlight the possibilities: “The field is fueled by touching, trying, interacting, and discussing, which is exactly what this conference creates a platform for.”

We invite scientists, researchers, designers, and practitioners who are pushing the development and design of Human-Computer Interaction to join this year’s conference. 3 high-class keynotes will be given as well as a great number of talks, 20 tutorials, and 22 workshops. Additionally, 23 demos will be shown during the night event. More than 650 participants from both academia and industry are already signed up.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
