  1. 1. Body Games : Designing for movement-based play in co-located social settings

    Author : Elena Márquez Segura; Barry Brown; Annika Waern; Florian Mueller; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Man-Machine-Interaction MMI ; människa-maskin-interaktion MMI ;

    Abstract : The challenge of designing for games and playful activities has moved past the technical, to focus on how to design for a design space where the threads of the digital technologies and the physical world interweave and entangle creating a hybrid fabric where play can take place. But how can we bridge between the digital and physical world where play is enacted and unravel the tangle of this hybrid fabric? How can we braid the digital and digital threads to spur playful experiences? In this thesis, I focus on a concrete fabric of hybrid play: co–located physical and social play, and propose a framework for design in this scenario: the PLAY BOOST framework. READ MORE

  2. 2. Participating in a Story: Exploring Audience Cognition

    Author : Pierre Gander; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; memory; cognition; comprehension; Lingvistik; Psychology; Filosofi; Philosophy; computer games; interactive media; perspective; memory qualities; spatial cognition; fiction; narrative; cognitive science; linguistics; Psykologi; Applied and experimental psychology; Tillämpad och experimentell psykologi;

    Abstract : Stories that the audience can influence (such as computer games and other interactive multimedia), in contrast to 'traditional' stories (such as books and cinema), present a challenge to fields which take narrative (story) as their study object. What is the difference between these two kinds of stories? Earlier theories have focused on differences in media, structure, or the audience's physical actions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Positive Persuasion - Designing enjoyable energy feedback experiences in the home

    Author : Anton Gustafsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Energy conservation; energy awareness; persuasive technology; sustainable HCI; ambient displays; pervasive games; serious games; engaging interaction; design; energy;

    Abstract : The world currently faces huge challenges in terms of our excessive use of energy. Energy conservation – a topic that has been on the agenda since the energy crisis in the 1970s – has for this reason once again become a very central issue in our society. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mean Field Games for Jump Non-Linear Markov Process

    Author : Rani Basna; Astrid Hilbert; Rainer Buckdahn; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mean-field games; Optimal Control; Non-linear Markov Processes; Mathematics; Matematik;

    Abstract : The mean-field game theory is the study of strategic decision making in very large populations of weakly interacting individuals. Mean-field games have been an active area of research in the last decade due to its increased significance in many scientific fields. READ MORE
