Proseminar: Mensch-Maschine-Interaktion (Human-Computer Interaction) – WS18/19

Kursbeschreibung:

Dieses Proseminar ist eine Einführung in den Bereich der Mensch-Computer-Interaktion. Aufbauend auf grundlegenden Veröffentlichungen zu diesem Thema vermittelt Ihnen das Proseminar eine neue Sicht auf die Benutzerschnittstelle und ihren Einfluss auf den Erfolg interaktiver Softwaresysteme. Dabei werden Sie Innovationen kennenlernen, die in den letzten Jahren Einzug in kommerzielle UIs gefunden haben, und solche, die bislang nur in Forschungslaboren existieren. Bei allen Themen handelt es sich um aktuelle Publikationen aus dem Bereich der HCI. Sie werden eine Ausarbeitung schreiben und eine Präsentation halten, welche den aktuellen Stand der Forschung aus dem jeweiligen Bereich darstellen und diskutieren soll. Die Bearbeitung der Themen erfolgt in Zweiergruppen.

Course Description

This proseminar is an introduction to the field of human-computer interaction. Building on basic publications on this topic, the proseminar provides a new perspective on the user interface and its impact on the success of interactive software systems. You will get to know innovations that have found their way into commercial UIs in recent years and those that only exist in research laboratories so far. All topics are current publications from the field of HCI. You will write a paper and give a presentation which will present and discuss the current state of research in the respective field. You will work on the seminar paper and the presentation in groups of two.

Submission Milestones

Literature Review

List of 7+ topic-related research papers with a contribution and benefits statement stating the contribution type each with a consistent storyline on how these papers are related to each other.

Report Outline

Clear structure of the final paper submission. What is the storyline you want to convey? How are you introducing the topic? What are the arguments you are providing? How are you connecting the papers to each other and your arguments?

First Report

This is the first complete draft of your seminar paper (14 content pages in our seminar paper template). We expect you to submit a version which you consider complete. No spelling mistakes, a closed argumentation, a complete bibliography, including all figures. The better your submission the better the feedback we can provide. If we need to fix spelling mistakes we have less time for in-depth feedback.

Slides

The first complete version of your presentation slides (Powerpoint, Keynote, Prezi, ....). The same applies as for the First Report. Hand in slides which you would confidently use for a presentation on the next day.

Camera-ready Slides

The next version of your presentation slides that include your supervisor's feedback. You will get even more in-depth feedback again for these slides.

Presentation (50% der Note)

The presentation in front of the other students and your supervisor. We expect a well-prepared presentation. Test your talk at least once in the room where you are going to present to familiarise yourself with the equipment and test your slides on the beamer in the room. The presentation time will be 20minutes followed by a 20 minutes discussion where you will get feedback and questions from your supervisor and your peers. We encourage a constructive feedback interaction where you can learn from each other and have a fun conversation on how to improve your presentation style.

Final Report (50% der Note)

Your final submission of your seminar paper. You have time during the presentation week to include your supervisor's feedback.
