A computational model for the emergence of turn-taking behaviors in user-agent interactions

We propose a computational model that endows conversational agents with the capability to coordinate their speaking turns (turn-taking management) in the context of mixed-initiative two-party dialogs. In human conversations, participants are …

Haptic feedback combined with movement sonification using a friction sound improves task performance in a virtual throwing task

In this paper we present a study on the effects of auditory- and haptic feedback in a virtual throwing task performed with a point-based haptic device. The main research objective was to investigate if and how task performance and perceived …

Study on generic tangible objects used to collaborate remotely on RFID tabletops

Having the tools to work remotely with other people is one of the ambitions of people who work in a group context. In fact they have to move and to link their team-work in order to collaborate on one or several tasks. This paper describes a study …


A framework for the descriptive specification of awareness support in multimodal user interfaces for collaborative activities

Advances related to the popularization of the Ambient Intelligence approach imply that new styles of computer–human interaction are being adopted, and, at the same time, the need of supporting activities of collaborative nature appears. In these …

Über diese Zeitschrift

In the development of multimodal interfaces, this journal offers a standard reference for multidisciplinary work.
As implied by the word Interfaces rather than Interactions in the title, the journal seeks to illustrate verifiable realisations over purely theoretical musings. The journal focuses on multimodal interfaces developed with an emphasis on user-centric design. Thus, usability and architectural considerations are also key targets.

Safety & Security – Erfolgsfaktoren von sensitiven Robotertechnologien

Forderungen von Industrie 4.0 nach vollständiger Vernetzung der Systeme geben der "Robotersicherheit" einen besonderen Stellenwert: Hierbei umfasst der deutsche Begriff Sicherheit die – im Englischen einerseits durch Safety umrissene physische Sicherheit – sowie andererseits die durch Security definierte informationstechnische Cyber-Sicherheit. Dieser Fachbeitrag aus der e&i beleuchtet eingehend die wesentlichen Aspekte von Safety und Security in der Robotik.
