Last week at CHI 2016, I've presented my new paper "CalenderCast: Setup-Free, Privacy-Preserving, Localized Sharing of Appointment Data" ( https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2858100 )
We also presented an interactive demo on our Massive Mobile Multiuser Framework, called MMM Ball: https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2890232
Our semester project "MoBat: Sound-based Localization of Multiple Mobile Devices on Everyday Surfaces" was presented at ITS2015 as a work-in-progress poster. Congratulations to Adrian Kreskowski, Jakob Wagner and Jannis Bossert!
In addition, we also co-presented the poster on "pART Bench" with the Usability Research Group, and supported the ITS conference through our two student volunteers, Jannis & Jakob. Thanks to everyone involved!
Our paper "Shoe Me the Way: A Shoe-based Tactile Interface for Eyes-Free Urban Navigation" by Max Schirmer, Johannes Hartmann, Sven Bertel and myself will be presented at MobileHCI 2015 in Copenhagen on August 26th.
Our project "MMM Ball" was a big success at Summaery and at Evoke 2015 in Cologne, attracting almost 100 users in total and winning second place in the interactive competition. Congratulations to Tim Weißker, Andreas Berst and Johannes Hartmann!
Our project "Privacy-Aware Location Services" will be exhibited at CeBit 2015! We show how a smartphone's location can be determined without relying on any central service (e.g. Google or GPS), thereby protecting the users' privacy. Visit us in hall 9, booth B18!
