Exploring light-weight tangibles
University of Auckland –
As we know, tangibles offer an interaction experience that is richer and more helpful for learning than traditional mouse + keyboard interaction. However, much of the early tangibles research required complex hardware setups including cameras, specialized tables or displays and specialized objects that incorporated electronics. This talk will focus on the work we have done with light-weight tangibles. The tangibles can easily be made with everyday objects and be used on any multi-touch device. The basic interaction is supported by a toolkit we have developed to enable easy deployment of context specific apps. The long-term goal of this work is to have tangible applications that can easily be used by non-experts in everyday settings.
Beryl Plimmer is an Associate Professor at The University of Auckland, New Zealand. After a varied career in industry and time out for family she undertook her PhD in HCI 2000-2004. Her topic was sketch based user interfaces. She has a substantial body of work in digital ink including ink recognition and various applications of ink. These ideas have been extended to include tangible interaction. She has also implemented a writing tool for visually impaired.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
