Academic research in (multi-touch) gestures for screen interfaces

December 13th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Last semester I joined the Journal Club lecture at our University. I continued my research in gesture based interaction for screen-based environments. This little paper research was based on the question how the screen size influences the gesture design. In the end I created a short presentation about important conferences for gesture design, and summarized the results of 4 papers. Thanks to Martin Kaltenbrunner for his useful advices!

Furthermore, I found a bunch of very interesting papers for designing gestures in screen-based environments. I want to share these papers with you. You are welcome to add comments about the papers or recommend other nice projects! (use the tooltip for only reading the titles of the papers)
