  1. 1. A Fine Balance : Addressing Usability and Users’ Needs in the Development of IT Systems for the Workplace

    Author : Inger Boivie; Jan Gulliksen; Henrik Artman; Helena Karasti; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; human-computer interaction; usability; usability professional; usability practitioner; user-centred design; user-centred systems design; IT systems development; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : IT systems with poor usability are a serious problem in many workplaces. Many workers, particularly office workers, spend a large part of their workday at the computer, and usability problems can cause frustration and impact negatively on productivity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Architectural Flirtations : A Love Storey

    Author : Brady Burroughs; Hélène Frichot; Katja Grillner; Katarina Bonnevier; Naomi Stead; KTH; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; architectural flirtations; architectural pedagogy; queer feminist theory; architectural critique; Camp; design practice research; performativity; experimental writing practices; critical fiction; critical architectural theory; Aldo Rossi; ‘significant otherness’; Architecture; Arkitektur;

    Abstract : Formulated as a feminist project, written as a pulp fiction, Architectural Flirtations: A Love Storey begins with our claim that the architectural discipline is centered around a culture of critique, which is based in what bell hooks calls “a system of imperialist, white supremacist, heterosexist, capitalist, patriarchy,” and that the values instilled by this culture not only begin with, but are reinforced and reproduced by, the education of young architects.Sounds serious.

  3. 3. Programming of coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures

    Author : Bertil Svensson; Veronica Gaspes; Dag Stranneby; Mario Porrmann; Zain Ul-Abdin; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Computer and Systems Science; Data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : Coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures, which offer massive parallelism coupled with the capability of undergoing run-time reconfiguration, are gaining attention in order to meet not only the increased computational demands of high-performance embedded systems, but also to fulfill the need of adaptability to functional requirements of the application. This thesis focuses on the programming aspects of such coarse-grained reconfigurable computing devices, including the relevant computation models that are capable of exposing different kinds of parallelism inherent in the application and the ability of these models to capture the adaptability requirements of the application.

    Abstract : This Untethered Buffoon or the Trickster in Everything is a documented artistic research project (Doctoral Thesis) in Performative and Mediated Practices, comprising a series of excavations and vivisections of W(w)hiteness through clowning, making and thinging. This work/play traverses the fields of critical whiteness studies, performance and clowning, visual and cultural anthropology and decolonial critique. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards Immersive Motion Capture Acting : Design, Exploration and Development of an Augmented System Solution

    Author : Daniel Kade; Oguzhan Özcan; Morten Fjeld; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer Science; datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Current and future animations seek for realistic motions to create a perception of authentic and human-like animations. A technology widely used for such purposes is motion capture. Therefore, to create such human-like animations, motion capture actors enrich the movements of digital avatars with realistic and believable motions and emotions. READ MORE
