Forschungsseminar Master Medieninformatik / Research Seminar Master Media Informatics

WS 2018/19

In this research seminar, students conduct medium-sized research projects around generic and specific research questions in human-computer interaction.

Organizers / Advisors: Raphael Wimmer, Andreas Schmid, Jürgen Hahn, Florian Bockes

Groups and Topics

A: Evaluation of the OBS Test Tool

Members: Julia Grötsch, Dominik Deller, Philipp Schuhbauer

B: Tasks and metrics for the comparison of user interfaces

Members: Daniel Schmaderer, Anna-Maria Auer
This projects aims to to build a set of tasks and metrics for the comparison of all possible UIs for a certain application context (photo sorting). This set needs to be very general, since it should be adaptable for all kind of UIs, even for those that are not available currently but might be used in the future. (more...)

C: Influence of latency and latency variance on UX and performance

Members: Vitus Maierhöfer, Felix Riedl, Andrea Fischer
A short description for „Influence of latency and latency variance on UX and performance“ (more...)

D: Comparing Ranking Methods

Members: Julia Sageder, Ariane Demleitner, Oliver Irlbacher
Multiple ranking methods (e.g. Condorcet, Likert, Point) are compared and evaluated in this project for determining the best set or combination of ranking methods. As a result, a „best suited“ ranking questionnaire will be generated, that is structured and improved steadily by examining a pre-study/pre-studies and a final main-study. (more...)

E: A non-invasive approach for measuring input device latency

Members: Paul Winderl, Johannes Dengler, Thomas Oswald
This research project examines a way of non-invasive measurement of input device latency. To achieve this, we try to measure the pressure point of a input button and repeat a clicking mechanism to get latency data. After collecting those, we compare the result with an invasive approach that was used in a previous study. (more...)

F: Comparing File Managers

Members: Philipp Weber, Khang Ho
This project wants to compare different file managers (classic, terminal based, two columns, ..) from different operating systems.
It aims fo find out, which types of file managers are best suited for certain users and tasks.
In order to do this a task corpus has to be developed which helps coparing the managers.
A user study with subjects of varrying previous experience will give more insight about the difference and suitability of the managers. (more...)

G: Why Augmented Reality is Awesome and Nobody Uses It

Members: Marlena Wolfes, Christine Schikora, Sümeyye Reyyan Yildiran
This research deals with the question why AR applications are not used, although AR represents an emerging field with promising technology and developments. With our research we want to offer an overview over the complex topic and huge amount of literature, as we aim to classify AR applications based on the used technology as well as evaluation methods. Following this approach we will investigate, which evaluation methods are useful for which kind of AR applications and possibly provide methods and guidelines that could serve as guidelines for the development of AR applications and their studies. So basically, we want to make AR great again. (more...)

H: Replicating Studies

Members: Marlene Bauer, Florian Habler
Replication is a term that refers to the repetition of a research study to determine whether the basic results of the original study can be applied to other participants and circumstances. (Kendra Cherry, 2018) (more...)

I: User performance with mobile and desktop applications

Members: Michael Hebeisen, Jonathan Seibold
We want to compare mobile and desktop devices with regard to user performance metrics, like task completion time and error rate. (more...)

J: Single vs. Multiple Tangibles

Members: Matthias Schenk, Fabian Zürcher
Tasks of a tangible user interface built for a multi-touch-table are examined in reply to the question wether users prefer one single tangible with dynamic functionality or multiple specific tangibles. (more...)
