This tutorial will introduce participants to a key design stage of gesture interaction: how to conduct a gesture elicitation study. Such a study consists of prompting participants (e.g., future users of a system) to choose their preferred gestures for carrying out a series of tasks through a gesture user interface and to come up with a consensus set of preferred gestures through a structured protocol.
After attending this tutorial, delegates will be able
A Gesture Elicitation Study (GES) is decomposed into six steps:
The tutorial adopts a step-by-step approach: each step will be first explained, each delegate will herself run the same step for a GES of their choice (e.g., gestures for image browsing on a smartphone).
Designers (primarily), developers, experimenters, researchers, investigators, and practitioners interested by using gestures in user interfaces
Jean Vanderdonckt, Ph.D., works in Human-Computer Interaction with focus on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems (EICS). He has developed some gesture recognition algorithms, such as LVS (https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007%2F978-3-540-74796-3_14) and !FTL (https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?doid=3242969.3243032).
Jean Vanderdonckt is a Full Professor at Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium), where he teaches Human-Computer Interaction, Information Systems, Model-based User Interface Design and Development. He is an ACM Distinguished Speaker and ACM Distinguished Scientist.
Radu-Daniel Vatavu, Ph.D., works in Human-Computer Interaction with focus on designing novel interactions and gesture user interfaces. He developed several gesture recognition algorithms (the last one being the $Q), gesture analysis tools (e.g., GHoST), and gesture methodologies such as gesture elicitation studies. Radu-Daniel Vatavu is a Professor at the Computer Science Department of the University of Suceava, where he teachesg Algorithms Design, Pattern Recognition, Advanced Programming, and Advanced Artificial Intelligence.
